|From foreign national to permanent resident
If you want to be a lawful permanent resident of the United States, you can obtain that status in a variety of ways. Most people qualify to immigrate to the U-S either by being sponsored by a close family member who's already a U-S citizen or permanent resident or by employment.
If you're a U-S citizen, you can petition for the immediate immigration of a foreign-adopted child. However, U-S law doesn't apply for the entry of newly adopted children of lawful permanent residents or long-term non-immigrant visa holders.
To be eligible for naturalization in the United States, you must meet certain requirements. First, you must be at least 18 years of age. You'll also need to have been admitted lawfully into the U-S as a permanent resident.
