Applying for a green card as a broadcaster

A foreign-born individual who would like to move to Georgia in order to work as a broadcaster might qualify for a green card. Each year, 100 visas are granted to foreigners who either work for or have received a grant from the International Broadcasting Bureau of the Broadcasting Board of Governors.

A qualified broadcaster may apply for a green card if they intend to live and work in the U.S. as a news broadcast host, reporter, writer, announcer or producer. Translators, editors and news analysis specialists employed by the BBG are also qualified to apply for this type of visa. An individual who is employed as a technician or support person does not qualify as a broadcaster for the purpose of securing this type of visa.

A person who would like to work in the United States. as such a broadcaster must have had a Form I-360, Petition for Amerasian, Widow(er), and Special Immigrant filed on his or her behalf with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Once approved, the application will be forwarded to the Department of State, and the applicant must file Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status. An application for a broadcasting green card will only be approved if the applicant is admissible to the United States and a visa is available. A broadcaster's children and spouse may apply for a green card along with the broadcaster.

Because only 100 broadcasting green cards are granted each year, an applicant might want to improve the chances of submitting a successful application by seeking legal assistance. An attorney who is familiar with employment immigration visas may be able to help the client to put together a strong application that can be approved.
