    Depends on what you do for a living. If you are a unskilled laborer-you will not get in.

    Skilled, (computer programmer, engineer) then there is a better possibility, but still not great. IN either of those cases you would need a company to sponsor you (Just like in UAE).

    If you are a buisness man/investor then the options open up a bit more, as mentioned above.

    The fact you are Syrian does pose a problem. The Syrian government is a listed "state sponsor of terrorism" . Part of the restrictions placed on Syria is more restrictions on immigration.

    Go to the US consulate in Dubia and request an appointment to inquire a visa. I don't know why you would want to leave the Emirates, quite a nice place, very comfortable, for arabs like yourself, maybe not for Indians and other unskilled labor. Although I know the cost of housing is just outrageously high the last couple of years.

    you can have either the Green card or a student visa, "i don't know about Syrian nationality"

    the green card has only 4 ways to be able to get it:

    1. Have a first level relative (brother, sister, mother, father) that has the American citizenship.

    2. you have at least 1 million dollars and willing to invest there and start a business

    3. Your married to or about to get married to a person who holds the American citizenship.

    4. Diversity visa lottery which is every year they give out 55 000 visas.

    or you can get a student visa for a certain degree then you will have to comply with its requirements and then hope you can get an offer before it expires and convert your visa to a worker visa after a while it converts to a green card.

    but you should check the US Department of State website for specific information about visas: http://www.state.gov/

    Grab some cash and donate it to the GOP via a lobbyist--that's the American way to get what you want out of this country at present--hurry though--these times they are a changin'!!

    Don't listen to those guys, besides, to be Mexican you have to swim that nasty polluted river. Go to the us embassy and apply for a visa. If you are honest ,hardworking, and mean us no harm, welcome.
