The United States of America has created a system of providing millions of foreigners with the opportunity to immigrate to the country for employment, study, and live on some sort of sponsorship program. The American Official Sponsorship program provides such opportunities.
Are you a student, scholar, entrepreneur, or businessman, all the information you need to know about the official Sponsorship Approval program is all in this article. This shows you how to get approval from different sponsorship programs related to the U.S. like Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and many other developed countries.
In this article, we would be looking at some of the benefits/programs under the American Official Sponsorship Approval like job employment (work permit), Scholarships (study), permanent visas (citizenship), and many more.
The American government gives an average of 50,000+ immigrants visa sponsorship to come and find jobs thereby obtaining a permanent visa (citizenship) in the U.S. and this doesn’t just stop there, students also are given the opportunity of coming to the United States to study and are offered the opportunity of a scholarship or an internship position or part-time jobs to sustain themselves while learning.
Visa Sponsorship (Job Employment)
Over 250,000 immigrants apply for a visa sponsorship program each year in the United States in order to be granted the chance to work and live. This visa sponsorship is of various types and all have different approaches to obtaining one.
There are immigrant visas which are for permanent immigration (green cards) and also visas that are sponsored by an organization or individuals to come into the United States.
A visa sponsored by an organization is called an H-1B visa while the visa sponsored by an entity or individual is called a visitor visa (J-1 visa). The question is how does this work? Firstly the organization or individual has to make a petition on behalf of the foreign national or immigrant, and once the petition has been approved, they are able to apply for the desired visa.
This at times can be challenging because employers have to prove that they are unable to fill their vacancies with qualified American workers for sponsoring a visa. They provide all the necessary help and assistance in the application process.
Visa Sponsorship (Family)
This is another category of visa sponsorship whereby a family member is offered a permanent visa or green card to come and live in the United States. According to research, over 600,000 people get a green card through a relative each year.
It is one of the common ways in which immigrants move into the United States. How this works is that the family petitions on behalf of the relative by submitting Form I-864 Affidavit of Support and other documents required during the application process.
Part of this form is to verify if the individual or U.S. national is able to sponsor the said relative to live in the country and sponsor all the necessary bills until the individual later becomes a U.S. citizen which usually takes about 10 years.
Visa Sponsorship (Spouse)
The U.S. can also petition for a fiancé to come into the country for marriage. They would first be required to fill a Form I-129F, Petition for Alien Relative with USCIS. Once the petition has been approved by the USCIS, the foreign national can then apply for the K-1 visa through the United States Embassy.
TH K-1 visa is to prove to the required authority that the U.S. citizen is able to sponsor the foreign national in the country. The petitioner must also submit Form I-134, Affidavit of Support to help the visa applicant.
Visa Sponsorship (Visitor)
Every visitor’s visa has a purpose and most times when that purpose has been fulfilled they are required to leave the United States. For example, a student coming to the U.S. to study under the F-1 visa, after his/her studies they are expected to go back to their home country.
Similarly, when you come to the U.S. for the purpose of visiting family and friends or for tourism and other activities, you are granted a B-2 visa. A B-2 visa most times doesn’t require any sponsor, given that you have a good financial background.
You can just go ahead and apply without a sponsor and once approved, you would be granted access into the country. For family members sponsoring a visitor’s visa or B-2 visa, you would be expected to be able to cater for the person’s in-country costs and expenses.
