Green Cards for Nannies

Families interested in long term care of children are eligible to file for their nanny to become a Lawful Permanent Resident, usually referred to as a Green Card holder. Like an H-2B visa, obtaining a Green Card for a nanny requires the family to demonstrate that there are no available qualified U.S. citizens for the job through a process called PERM. Once the PERM process is complete, the family can file a petition for the nanny to receive an EB-3 visa. After that petition is approved, the nanny can file for her Green Card and begin working. However, in past years nannies were unable to file for a Green Card for several years due to a backlog in “priority dates.” As of July 2015, nannies who are citizens of most countries are able to apply for their Green Cards within a few months of approval of the family’s petition. In the future the wait for priority dates may change so families are encourage to begin this process as soon as possible.
