Glossary of Basic U.S. Immigration Terms

In this blog entry, I decided to provide everyone with a list of the most common terms that come up in U.S. immigration lingo.  After talking to clients, I found that many of them are confusing like Visa and Status.  Some are always being discussed in their short, abbreviated form like EB1 or NIW and EAD.  And, there are different government agencies working independently, at different stages, on individual aspects of a person's immigration journey, but ultimately we reach one resolution.   This is a handy reference to keep and get a quick overview.
