Legal immigration should be straightforward for MS/PhD students in 2022.

To enhance your concentration on scholarly work, here are 6 ways to become a permanent resident (PR) in the United States.

1. Family-based

The most-common path to permanent residency in the U.S.

Straightforward. A citizen sponsors you- as a spouse, or as their child, or sibling.

A lawful permanent resident (aka green card holder) can sponsor you as a spouse.
2. Employment-based immigration

Find an employer to sponsor your PR. Typically, you'd have to begin work with an H-1b work visa with the employer before transitioning to PR status.
For this to happen, employers must prove that no US worker is available to fill the position.
