We all are aware of how difficult and challenging it is for any individual to apply for a visa. Most people undergo unpleasant scenarios where you are faced with numerous interrogations by embassy officials with regards to your core purpose of the application. This may end up in either you meriting your visa or facing the agony of being denied one, not forgetting to have to forfeit a non-refundable fee which you must pay prior to your application process.

Due to this ill experience, many people all over the world tried to devise ways of getting around the possibility of relinquishing their travel plans by giving unconvincing answers to questions posed by embassy officials. As a result of such determined efforts, ways such as being invited by a relative, lawful permanent resident or a prospective employer were unraveled.

In this article, we will take a closer look at these ways and try to analyze how effective they can be used to legally get a travel visa into the USA. First of all, we shall look at meriting your visa through a family member or relative who lives in the USA. It is important to bring to your attention that the USA has tight immigration rules, and even if you are to opt for this method as an alternative route into the country, you still need to ensure all legal steps are adhered to, which according to many people may become hectic and time-consuming. For a person to use a family member or relative that lives in the USA, he/she needs to ask that family member to apply for a visa on behalf of the individual who seeks to travel to the US. In most cases, what happens is, the family member will visit the united states embassy and give valid reasons as to why you should visit the USA, and if his/her reasons are deemed satisfactory by immigration officials, then a visa containing your details will be issued out. However, for this family member to be given a visa, a thorough check will be done to prove her/his capacity to cater for all your basic needs throughout your stay in the USA.

The second type of visa that one can apply for is the employer sponsored visa. This in a few words means that your employer gets a visa for you since you are new to the country. To be considered as an immigrant under the employment category it is of major importance that the prospective employer or agent gets a labor certification from the department of labor. Soon after this, the employer files a petition for an immigrant or alien worker. Such petitions are in vast categories based on abilities and they include but not limited to persons with extraordinary abilities, outstanding professors and researchers and multinational managers or executives.

Another type of available visas includes special immigrant visas which are issued to applicants who are immigrants for a specific purpose, an example being interpreters of a certain language or religious workers. In all the types of visas discussed above, there are fee charges that accompany the requirements. Therefore, the immigrant should be in a position to meet the charges required
