  1. Although not clear from your question, I presume you are a U.S. citizen. If that is so, then you could file a K-1 fiance visa application that, upon approval, would allow your fiance to enter the U.S. for the purpose of becoming married to you within 90 days of entry, and then you could process an application for him to adjust status to become a Lawful Permanent Resident (to get a "Green Card"). It would be wise to work with an immigration attorney to address eligibilities and assure that applications are properly prepared and fully documented to avoid delays and other problems.

  2. You should consult with an immigration attorney about this matter. If you are a US Citizen, you could file a petition for your boyfriend to get a fiance visa to come to the USA and marry you, and then apply for a green card. Another option is for you to marry your boyfriend outside the USA, and then file paperwork for him to immigrate to the USA as a permanent resident (green card status). The end result is the same with both processes. Best of luck.
