Miami, FL |

I have not lived in the USA for over 45 years never worked and am now retirement age. I wish to go to the US now and live. My husband of over two years works where we live has some funds and is 50 years old. He has many siblings in the US who are citizens. What visa should I try to get for him as he will want to travel to and from Jamaica to visit his children etc. Does getting an immigrant visa or green card restrict your ability to travel out of the USA?

I am a US citizen and a British Citizen. He has a British multri entry visa.
