New Guinea

On what continent is Papua New Guinea?

Papua New Guinea occupies the eastern half of the large island of New Guinea positioned north of Australia. For this reason, it is considered to be part of the political region known as Oceania. Oceania is not a geographical continent.

Some would say that Papua New Guinea is on the continent of Australia, but this is not the case. The continent of Australia is quite different to the political region of Oceania. Much debate has been made over whether Oceania and Australia are continents, but the difference lies in the definition of "continent" as a single land mass.

The western half of the island of New Guinea, which belongs to Indonesia, is considered to be part of the continent of Asia.

Citizenship and Marriage
Immigration
Oceania

Does an illegal alien become a legal resident by marrying a US resident not citizen but US resident?

There is a lot of paperwork involved! Even if you married a US resident or even citizen that does not make you a us citizen. In fact, you could get into a lot of trouble if they deem that you purposely entered the US to get married to become a US citizen. Although it is possible. Your spouse would have to be a permanent resident or US citizen for you to become a permanent resident. The US prefers you marry (in our out of the US) then the permanent resident or citizen applies for your entry OR the US citizen of Permanent Resident applies before for you to enter the US and then you get married in the US and apply for Permanent residency.

Great site I found as my husband immigrated from the UK on a Fiance visa.

but what if you don't have a date of birth

I also, and may be wrong, but if it is deemed that you married to create a citizenship or legal residency, that might be unlawful and you could get into trouble. Though, a lot of military marry women in foreign lands which brings them here. Which is a lot different then someone unlawfully doing so. The US doesn't exactly make it a point to extradite spouses.
