Understanding U.S. Immigration from Uzbekistan

Immigrating to the United States can be a complex and challenging process. Individuals from Uzbekistan may struggle to understand their legal requirements, the forms and documents they will need to file, and the issues that could potentially affect their ability to join their family members in the United States, work for U.S. employers, and eventually pursue U.S. citizenship. Whether you are seeking to reunite with family members already in the U.S., exploring employment opportunities, or need to address concerns about inadmissibility, it is important to work with an attorney who has experience helping immigrants address these issues. At Khan Nayyar & Associates, LLC, we understand the unique challenges faced by immigrants from Uzbekistan, and we are ready to provide comprehensive legal assistance for you and your family members.

Applying for Family-Based Visas

For many people from Uzbekistan, reuniting with family members is a top priority. The family-based visa process allows eligible individuals to sponsor their relatives for permanent residency in the U.S. Depending on whether the sponsor is a U.S. citizen or has a valid Green Card, they may be able to help different types of family members immigrate to the United States.

An experienced immigration attorney can guide family members through the process of filing Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, which establishes a relationship between a sponsor and a qualifying relative. We can help compile supporting documents such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, and other evidence of familial ties. Once a petition is approved by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), a person may receive an immigrant visa that will allow them to enter the United States.

We can help apply for Immediate Relative visas, which can usually be issued quickly for qualifying immigrants. U.S. citizens can provide sponsorship for these visas for their spouses, children (as long as they are unmarried minors), or parents. Other types of family members may qualify for Family Preference visas, although longer waiting periods will generally be required in these cases. U.S. citizens can provide sponsorship for married children, unmarried adult children, or siblings. Lawful permanent residents can provide sponsorship for spouses, parents, and unmarried minor children. Finally, U.S. citizens who wish to get married to people from Uzbekistan can provide sponsorship for their fiancés through K nonimmigrant visas.

Pursuing Employment-Based Visas

If you are an individual from Uzbekistan who plans to pursue professional opportunities in the United States, there are various employment-based visas available based on specific criteria. H-1B visas allow employers to hire foreign workers who have experience in specialized fields, giving them temporary authorization to live in the United States. To qualify for an H-1B visa, a person from Uzbekistan must have a sponsoring employer who offers work that requires at least a bachelor's degree or its equivalent.

Other types of employment-based visas will allow certain types of workers to resettle in the United States permanently. The EB-1 category may be available for immigrants who have high levels of ability and are recognized for their achievements in fields such as business, science, education, or the arts. The EB-2 category may be an option for immigrants who possess advanced degrees or have exceptional abilities in certain occupations related to sciences, arts, or business. The EB-3 category is reserved for professionals in occupations requiring a bachelor's degree or an equivalent level of education, skilled workers in positions that require at least two years of education or experience, and unskilled workers who will be working in jobs that require less than two years of experience or training.

An immigration attorney who understands the requirements for employment-based visas can assist employers and employees in preparing the necessary documentation, such as labor certifications and job offers, to support a visa application. We will help ensure that a person meets all legal requirements to move to the United States and work for a sponsoring employer, and we will address any concerns that could affect the immigration process.

Obtaining a Green Card

A Green Card, officially known as a Permanent Resident Card, will allow qualifying individuals from Uzbekistan to live and work permanently in the United States. People who are approved for immigrant visas after being sponsored by a family member or employer will usually be able to receive a Green Card after entering the U.S. For those who are currently in the United States, there may be options available for adjustment of status, which will allow people classified as non-immigrants to become lawful permanent residents.

Our experienced immigration attorneys will guide you through every step of the Green Card application process, ensuring that proper forms are completed accurately and that any potential complications are appropriately addressed. We will guide you through filing Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, along with other required supporting documents.
