Green Card Benefits

  • The US Green Card gives you the right to enter the United States as a permanent resident – and without all the complications.
  • If you want to permanently settle in the USA as a Green Card holder, there are no restrictions to where you can go and all 50 US states are open to you. 
  • Moreover, with a Green Card you can also exercise, apart from voting, almost all the rights that a US citizen has without having to give up your current citizenship.
  •  If you decide you want to become a US citizen, then you can apply for US citizenship after living in America for five years. There is no rule requiring you to immediately immigrate after receiving the Green Card, but it should be your intention.

Studying in the USA

  • University tuition fees can be reduced by as much as 80% with a Green Card.
  • Green Card holders do not have to go through the long and complicated process of applying for a student visa.
  • Students with a U.S. Green Card can also apply for federal student loans.

Retirement in the USA

There are many benefits for pensioners in the USA who have a Green Card – including, of course, being able to spend the entire day in the sun. If you are a retired Green Card holder, you are entitled to the pension you have earned in both your home country and in the United States. Retired Green Card holders living in the USA can also benefit from medical aid programs like Medicare and other social welfare programs. The only requirement is that you have lived in the USA for at least five years. If you have ever played with the idea of spending your retirement relaxing in a rocker on a Florida beach, then you should think of getting a U.S. Green Card. Winning the Green Card Lottery is the easiest way.
