Dear all,


I am a 20 year old healthy and non-criminal guy from Western-Europe and am wondering about this scenario:

I wish to go to college for the next 4 years and obtain a bachelor degree and live the rest of my life in the US

For my study i will not require financial aid because i can pay for that but after 4 year that money will be gone

So i probably qualify for a student visa am i correct ?

Once i am finished with college do i qualify for a greencard or even citizenship or will i have to leave the country ?

There are 2 distand (cousins) family members of mine who are really respectable persons (they are doctors) who would be willing to sign papers from the INS to "sponsor" or anything.


Do you think it will be possible for me to get a greencard or something similair after my college education(i will be studying Business) ? i do not aim at a HB1 visa because i would like to have some certainties.

Otherwise i'll probably go to Australia but the USA is my first choiche !


A answer would be Really welcome and appreciated.


Best wishes

Steve

Correct. You need to obtain I-20 form from university, enroll as a full time student,
upon obtaining an F-1 visa you will have to maintain your status as a full time
student and also maintain a certain GPA. As a student you are not allowed to work
without INS permission (you can work on the campus during the first year of your
studies, and afterwards you can apply for work permission with INS allowing you to
work off campus).

Upon completion of your studies, you may qualify for H1 visa.

Their sponsorship may be helpful with F1 visa, but not for "green card". Only
immediate relative (parent, spouse, child over 21y of age) can file a petition on
your behalf.

Again, when you get your BA, you may be able to get H1 visa. The bottom line is, yes,
you do have options.
