You have decided that you would like to become a legal immigrant in the United States but you don't know where to begin or how to proceed. Hello, I'm Robert Todd and I'm here to answer the question how to become a legal immigrant in the United States. The first place to start is to check out the website for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service, abbreviated the UCIS. They have a website that will take you through the process of applying for legal immigration status. Generally speaking it's a three step process. An employer or relative fills out a petition that they submit to the UCIS. Once that's approved it's then sent to the national VISA center and while very few VISAs are issued each year, once a VISA is issued it's then sent to the Unites State Consulate or United States Embassy in your country for processing and that's the process. I'm Robert Todd and thank you for watching.
