Obtaining a green card is vital for the over 1 million international students who wish to stay in the US permanently, and it can also lead to a lower cost of education. Green card holder benefits include:
Most public universities offer much lower tuition rates for in-state students, and it is almost impossible to receive in-state tuition without becoming a permanent resident of the US. In fact, some universities such as Arizona State University, University of Illinois — Urbana Champaign, and Purdue University charge international students an extra 10% above out-of-state students. Planning ahead and getting in-state tuition can save students and their parents a lot of money.
Green card holders have access to financial aid offered by universities, as well as government-sponsored financial aid.
Most student visas are very restrictive when it comes to employment. Having a green card allows you to work while studying, making it easier to pay for tuition and other costs of university attendance.
Becoming a green card holder makes you more employable. Companies have to file a lot of paperwork and pay thousands of dollars to sponsor an employee for a work visa, and as a result, many firms choose to hire only US permanent residents or citizens. Forget about working for a boutique trading shop or high-tech startup company if you don’t have a green card or citizenship.
Many brilliant foreign students prefer to start their own business in the US instead of working for an employer. Unless you have a green card, business ownership is not possible.
While the US government allows non-residents of the US to purchase property, many Home Owners Associations (or Condo/Co-op Associations) require that owners be green card holders or US citizens.
Having a green card makes it much easier to travel in and out of the United States.
Once you become a green card holder, you can sponsor your parents for US permanent residency.
