5 TACTICS FOR GREEN CARD SUCCESS 1 MAKE SURE YOUR EMPLOYEE IS ON A DUAL INTENT VISA. The green card application process can be lengthy and complicated, but taking a strategic approach helps streamline your tasks and avoid headaches down the line. Here are five tactics for filing a successful green card petition. Tactics for Green Card Success 5 GREEN CARD 01 Not all employment-based visas are created equal. Some are "dual intent," meaning those employees can state their intent to apply, and then petition, for permanent residency while they're in a temporary status. International workers on dual intent visas are more likely to be able to enter the United States without being questioned about their intent to immigrate. If you begin the petition process for an employee on a non-dual intent visa, when traveling outside the country he or she could be stopped at the border under suspicion of intent to live in the United States permanently, and could be kept from entry. It's possible to apply for a green card while on a non-dual intent visa, but it's recommended that your employee switch to an H-1B or an L-1 visa before beginning the application process, if possible.
