Immigration USA

The US is famous for being built by immigrants. The whole country was a beacon to people who wanted to make a new life for themselves, where freedom was paramount and endeavour was rewarded, and not much has changed. US immigration and naturalization is among the many areas on which we can offer expert advice. The best way to get in touch with a expert on US immigration law is to take our free assessment.

US Immigration
Foreign nationals who want to reside permanently in the US will require a US immigration visa, regardless of whether they plan to work there. The application involves filing your petition, visa processing and the final interview and medical examination stage. Currently US immigration laws do not make provision for people who want to retire to the US.

US Visa Types
Below are some of the main visa types for permanent immigration to the USA.

US Immigration for Immediate Family

Though foreign spouses do not automatically gain US citizenship when they marry a US citizen they can qualify for their green card under the immediate relative category. Other relatives of US citizens who are eligible are:

  • Parents and step-parents
  • Children and step-children under the age of 21
  • Spouses of deceased US citizens
To obtain an immigrant visa, the US citizen (petitioner) must first file an immigrant visa petition Form I-130 with the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Family Based Visas for US Immigration

In this category either the US citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) can file an immigrant visa petition. Family members who are eligible here are:

  • Unmarried sons/daughters aged 21 or over of a US citizen
  • Married sons/daughters of a US citizen
  • Brothers/sisters of a US citizen
  • Spouses and unmarried sons/daughters of a LPR.
US Visas
Every year 55,000 immigrant visas are also made available through the US visa lottery. This scheme is aimed at applicants from countries that have a low rate of immigration to the US. Application must be direct through the US Department of State website and eligibility is determined by place of birth.

Angkor Archeological Park

This section as intended as a guide for visiting the monuments at Angkor. It can be either read in advance of a visit or afterwards to reinforce the experience, or used at the sites to enable the visitor to be an active spectator. Historical quotes from early visitors to Angkor are included where appropriate to try to capture the spirit of its past glory.

Legends and symbolism are also included whenever feasible to give the visitor additional background for a better appreciation of Angkor.


It is based on the amount of time the visitor has to spend at Angkor and take into consideration the roads, proximity of the temples, and favorable light conditions.

For some temples it is important to begin at the principal entrance to perceive the space and decoration as the builder intended, and entrances are indicated in the text. The monuments are oriented according to the four points of a compass which can be used as a point of reference. the temple of Angkor Wat is covered in detail in this book because of its importance, complexity and size.

Angkor provides wonderful photographic opportunities. the monuments and the surrounding jungle afford unlimited textural and lighting opportunities for composing a picture.

Clouds are common and tend to diffuse the light which is somewhat flat even though it is intense. As most of the temples face east the best lighting conditions are in the morning except for Angkor Wat where the best light is in the afternoon because it faces west. the temples surrounded by jungle such as Ta Prohm and Prah Khan can be photographed with good results when the sun is directly overhead and shining through the foliage. Just as one is never prepared for the enormous size and overwhelming beauty of Angkor, one is never ready to leave it.

With photographs and visions etched in memory, one need never say good-by to Angkor, for its magic will go with you wherever fate and the gods may take you to colour your thoughts and dreams to life's very end. The name of the monuments at Angkor are often modern ones designated by Cambodians or early European travellers. In publications by the French the enclosures of a temple are numbered starting from the central sanctuary and progressing towards the enclosing walls.
The system used in this book reverses the order for the convenience of the visitor. Thus the first enclosing wall the visitor encounters when entering a temple is number one. the numbers ascend from the exterior to the interior of the monument. In many distances, though, only traces of the enclosing walls, particularly the outer one, remain.


You must possess an admission pass (an 'Angkor Pass') to visit the temples and sites in the Angkor Archaeological Park. Passes may be purchased at the main entrance on the road to Angkor Wat. One-day tickets only can be purchased at the secondary tollgate on airport road entrance near Angkor Wat and at Banteay Srey.

Passes are sold in one-day ($20), three-day ($40) and seven-day ($60) blocks that must be used on consecutive days. Photo taken on the spot with free of charge is required at time of purchase.

Visiting hours are 5:00AM - 6:00PM. Angkor Wat closes at 6:00PM, Banteay Srey closes at 5:00PM and Kbal Spean at 3:00PM. Always carry your ticket. It will be checked upon each park entry and at major temples. There is a significant fine for not possessing a valid ticket inside the park. A regular admission ticket is not required to visit Phnom Kulen, Koh Ker or Beng Melea, but there is a separate entrance fee of $20, $10 and $5, respectively.
