I have. It is very difficult to get a visa to immigrate to the United
States. We have an immigration quota for every country so each applicant
ends up on waiting list and waits on it for many years. My nephew came over
here on a visitor's visa and after he arrived in the United States he
immediately applied for a permanent visa. He had to hire an immigration
attorney and the whole process was relatively expensive; but eventually he
got his green card and has since applied for citizenship. I don't
necessarily recommend this approach, but it did work for my nephew.

Subject: [S-R] cousin question
Has anyone ever sponsored a Slovak cousin to immigrate to the US? I have a
cousin who wants to come over, but I have no idea what the procedure is.
Thanks a lot!
