There are some other ways in which individuals may legally come to the United States to live and work. Among these are certain visas for investors, the diversity visa lottery program, and certain protective visa categories for asylees and refugees. There are also certain protective visas for victims of crime and government witnesses.
Each of these additional forms of entry into the U.S. is different, and the requirements for each vary. It may be beneficial for you to discuss your particular situation with an attorney to see if you qualify for a visa outside of the family visa and employment visa categories.
