A lot of people who come to the US on dual intent visas like the H-1B visa, O-1 Visa and L-1 Visa and the non explicit dual intent visas like the TN Visa for Canadians and E-3 Visa for Australians ultimately hope their employer sponsor company for their non-immigrant visa will be happy to sponsor them for a Green Card one day under EB-1, EB-2 or EB-3.

Now many never get the chance because their employer companies don’t want the additional expense and time to do this and/or the actual foreign sponsor doesn’t want to endure the long wait times and static career growth as a result of this process. Recently we looked at where Green Card & Visa Sponsored non-immigrant foreigners reside around the US to help people get a better idea of where the opportunities and competition lies.

Today we will look at both the companies that are sponsoring the greatest number of Green Card Applications by their Labor Certification data as well as what countries dominate the demographics of these foreign applicants. This data also comes from the US Department of Labor and is for the 2011 Immigration year.

Microsoft is by far and away the greatest sponsor of Green Card Applications with 39% of the Top 25 companies total and 6% of all applications. So maybe getting a job in Redmond, WA near Seattle is a great idea! This list is dominated by Technology and Finance companies and the positions that most of these applications tend to be for are Engineers in Computer Science with a few Accounting/Consulting type roles as well.

Bank of America

JP Morgan & Chase

Indian nationals makes up over 50% of all Green Card Applicant sponsors with an average annual salary of  above 90K. This is the second highest among the other Top 5 countries being China, South Korea, Canada and Philippines. Canadian sponsored permanent residents average salary for the sponsored roles tops 100K which is possibly not surprising given their long standing relationship and proximity to the US and thus their citizens being on the most equal footing with US Citizens of any foreigner when applying for roles and negotiating salary.

Green Cards earned their nickname because they were colored green between 1946 and 1964. They were made green again in 2010, but the Green Card nickname persisted, even as the cards were colored blue, yellow, and pink.

Family-Based Green Cards

Family sponsorship is among the most common methods for foreign nationals to enter the United States. Green Card holders and American citizens can sponsor certain members of their family for legal status within the United States. The U.S. citizen or Green Card holder sponsoring their relatives must prove that they can financially support the beneficiary.

U.S. citizens and Green Card holders can file immigrant petitions on behalf of their wives, husbands, and unmarried children to gain legal entry for them into United States. U.S. citizens enjoy being able to sponsor wider categories of relatives than Green Card holders. US Citizens can sponsor parents, brothers, sisters, and married children. US Citizens must be over age 21 to sponsor parents, brothers, and sisters.

However, there are still limits to whom a legal citizen is allowed to sponsor. They are not allowed to sponsor aunts, uncles, grandparents, grandchildren, their in-laws, or their cousins—only close relatives and next of kin.

Employment-Based Green Cards

Foreign nationals may be able to get a Green Card to stay in the United States if they receive an offer of permanent employment from an employer within the United States and if that employer is willing to sponsor them for a Green Card. Those with higher education and ability are more likely to receive an employment-based Green Card for entry into the United States.

Investment-Based Green Cards

Foreign nationals can gain a Green Card for the United States by creating jobs in the country through investing between $500,000 and $1,000,000 in commercial enterprises. The investment must benefit the U.S. economy, and the national in question must have created at least ten full-time jobs for American citizens.


People who are granted asylum or refugee status within the United States are eligible for a Green Card if they meet requirements. They can file an application for an adjustment of status and receive permanent resident status within the U.S. The system might sound daunting, but we are here to help.
