Do I Qualify For an EB-2 Visa?

An EB-2 visa offers employment-based residency to foreign professionals with significant talent and additional educational training in their field. The EB-2 visa is available to those who fit into any of the three subcategories:

  • Advanced Degree: These applicants must hold the equivalent of a bachelor's degree and have five years of relevant experience in their profession.
  • Exceptional Ability: These applicants must show profound talent in their field through evidence of recognition, awards, or some other means.
  • National Interest Waiver: These applicants hold an advanced degree and are proposing to complete an endeavor aligned with their skills that would benefit the country.

The employer of the applicant typically files an "Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker" to further the EB-2 visa process in advanced degree and exceptional ability cases. This form must be correctly prepared and submitted to maximize the chances for success. Attorney Widman can help you do that.
