How can South Korean come to USA to live?

Hi everyone,

I wonder what need to be done for South Korean to have the right to travel to USA and also to live in USA.

Initially it will be only to visit? So I believe visa of some kind is required and so i'm wonder how long does it take and what is the process to be able to travel to USA?

And then if a person from South Korea wants to live permanently in USA, with what Visa can that happen?

Especially if they have no chance to secure marriage so no marriage or fiance visa so what is the amount of time it takes for this person to be able to come to USA and live? Is financial sponsorship required? This woman who want to come is working in healthcare and has a child under 13 year old so she has a work but the child will be another visa? They will stay with a old man in USA who will provide her home to stay until he pass away by then she will be secure in the home but I am not sure what to do as it is just in the beginning but this is very important and i hope for any kind of information? Thank you much

They will stay with an old man? OK.

She could apply for the diversity lottery, but I've no idea when the next 'pull' is.

She could apply as a tourist, come for short stay.

She could apply as investor, need 250,000 to 1,000,000 to qualify

She could come as entrepreneur, not sure of the dollar amounts to qualify.

So, if she's not gonna try the marriage route - these were the types that I know about. There might be others.

If she's in healthcare, though, it might actually be easier for her to go to Signapore, apply for citizenship there after some time, after having a residency/work permit.

This person needs to decide how they will qualify for a visa that would allow for them to legally reside (live permanently) in the US. Darnell gave some options.

Depending on the choice, the person can then learn how long it would take. It could be months, it could be years. That would depend on what type of visa the person qualifies for.
