Am I eligible for the EB-1 visa?

The EB-1 visa is also referred to as the "first preference immigration petition." Statistically, priority workers receive 28% of the employment-based visas released each year. Those who are eligible are given an excellent opportunity to further their career in the United States and make a difference in the lives of those they encounter.

This petition is reserved for those immigrants considered the most distinguished and proficient in their fields.

An applicant must belong to one of the three categories below:

  • Workers with extraordinary ability
  • Outstanding professors or researchers
  • Multinational managers or executives

Extraordinary ability is judged on a case-by-case basis, but typically means that the applicant has made remarkable strides in the sciences, education, arts, business, or athletics field. Professors and researchers must have at least three years of experience in their academic area. Those who apply under the final category must have been employed outside of the U.S. for at least three years.
