Apply for a Green Card

Help for immigrants seeking permanent residency

Schedule an appointment with one of the organizations below to see if the individual is eligible for a Green Card through their family, job, refugee or asylum status, or another way. Green Card holders can live and work in the United States permanently and eventually apply for U.S. citizenship.  

Already have a Green Card? See if you qualify for U.S. citizenship.
 

Who can help

These organizations can help immigrants find out if they qualify for a Green Card and help them apply. For San Franciscans, initial consultations are generally low-cost or free.
