|Federal Agency Help - Citizenship/Immigration|
The Central Coast truly embraces the idea of a melting pot, a vibrant community of all colors and backgrounds. Our history of immigrants coming to our communities to work hard and raise their families goes back many years and continues today. We've seen countless families who came here with nothing and have realized the American Dream.
US Citizenship and Immigration Service
Anyone who intends to immigrate to the United States will need to obtain an immigrant visa from their local consulate. Visas are also needed by intending immigrants who are already present in the United States.
If you want to become an immigrant, you must go through a three-step process.
U.S. law limits the number of immigrant visa numbers that are available every year. This means that even if the USCIS approves an immigrant visa petition for you, you may not get an immigrant visa number immediately. In some cases, several years could pass between the time USCIS approves your immigrant visa petition and the State Department gives you an immigrant visa number. In addition, U.S. law also limits the number of immigrant visas available by country. This means you may have to wait longer if you come from a country with a high demand for U.S. immigrant visas.
