What do you have to arrange yourself for your move?
A visa is not required for a holiday to the USA, this holiday must then be shorter than 90 days. For this you need to apply for an ESTA. But if you want to move to the USA, it is important to obtain the right visa.
The right visa for you will depend on why you are moving to the USA, your nationality and how long you plan to stay in the United States.
So where can I find more information about visas in the United States? The best place with the most information is the website of the Department of State. Here you will find all the information about the different types of visas available and their requirements.
Can I apply for US citizenship?
If you want to emigrate to the USA, you will first need to apply for an immigration visa. With an immigrant visa you can apply for a “green card” in the USA yourself. To be eligible for a green card, you must meet certain requirements.
To apply for a United States citizenship you will first need to have a green card for 5 years. If you are married to a person who has US citizenship, you only need to have a green card for 3 years.
If you are in the USA with an “Employment Based Immigration Visa”, you will also need to apply for a green card based on your work in the USA. Below are the different “green cards” that you can apply for:
- Family green card
- Green card through employment
- Special immigrant green card
- Refugee or asylum seekers status green card
- Green card for victims of human trafficking and crime
- Green card for victims of abuse
- Via other categories

These requirements are most easily found on the USCIS website. Once you have found the category that suits your situation, click on the link to get information. If you are eligible for one of these green cards, you will find all information about applying for a green card here.
