I-601 Inadmissibility Waiver

If you have a condition or characteristic that the U.S. government has decided undesirable or would threaten the health and safety of people living in the United States, you are inadmissible. The U.S. government keeps a list of the conditions and characteristics that make a person inadmissible. (See I.N.A §212, 8 U.S. Code § 1182.) In obtaining a waiver, you don’t try to get rid of or disprove the ground of inadmissibility. Instead you ask the immigration authorities to overlook the problem and give you a green card or visa anyway.

I-601 不得入境豁免

如果您的个人情况是美国政府认定不受欢迎或威胁到美国居民的健康和安全的,则对您的案件不予受理。 美国政府列出了使某人案件成为不予受理的条件和特征。(参见移民和国籍法案§212,美国法典第八章§1182。)这种情况下您需要申请豁免。在申请豁免时,您不是试图摆脱或反驳不予受理的理由。 相反,你要求移民局忽视这个问题并同意受理您的绿卡申请。

Advance Parole

Different terms may confuse some people with advance parole and reentry permit. Ask yourself whether you are waiting for the approval of the I-485 Adjustment of Status, or you are already a permanent resident. If you are the former, you should get the advance parole before you leave the U.S. to secure your admission upon your return to the U.S border unless your visa is still valid when you come back.

Advance Parole 回美证

回美证和回美纸两种说法经常让人混淆。你可以问自己一个问题:你是正在等待绿卡批准还是已经是永久居民?如果是前者,那你需要在离开美国申请回美证来保证能够重新进入美国,除非你再次入境时原来的签证还有效。

Reentry Permit

Different terms may confuse some people with advance parole and reentry permit. Ask yourself whether you are already a permanent resident or you are still waiting for the approval of the I-485 Adjustment of Status. If you are the latter, no matter you are conditional or not, you should get the reentry permit before you leave the U.S. for more than one year or you cannot obtain or update your valid passport issued by your home country to secure your admission upon your return to the U.S.

Reentry Permit 回美纸

回美证和回美纸两种说法经常让人混淆。你可以问自己一个问题:你是正在等待绿卡批准还是已经是永久居民?如果你已经是永久居民或者附条件的永久居民并且想要在美国境外停留超过一年以上,或者你出境后无法从国籍国获得或更新你的护照,那么离开美国前你必须获得回美纸以确保能够再次顺利入境美国。

Consular Processing

The final step in obtaining your visa or green card when you are oversees is to attend an interview with a U.S. consular in your home country. You will be required to complete the corresponding form on U.S. Department of State CEAC website and submit all civil and financial support documents before getting an interview date.

Consular Processing 领馆程序

获得签证或绿卡的最后一步是参加在您母国的美国领事馆的面试。 您需要在美国国务院CEAC网站上填写相应的表格,并提交所有民事和财务支持文件,在文件完整无误的情况下,美国领事馆会安排面试时间。

PERM

Before starting the whole EB-2 or EB-3 green card application, your employer needs to go through a process called PERM. Your employer needs to request Prevailing Wage Determination (PWD) for a position within a specific area at that time from the U.S. Department of Labor, using the Internet-based iCert system. The PWD will typically expire within a year or less, so It will be important to recruit for and file the PERM labor certification soon after the PWD is issued.

PERM 劳工证

在开始整个EB-2或EB-3绿卡申请之前,您的雇主需要经历一个称为PERM的过程。 您的雇主需要使用iCert系统,向美国劳工部申请某一时间、某个区域对于某个特定职位的现行工资标准(PWD)。 现行工资标准通常会在一年或更短的时间内失效,因此,在现行工资标准确定后就应该开始打广告和提交PERM劳工证申请,这一点很重要。
