What Are The Different Types Of Employment Visas?

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) offers several options regarding employment immigration. Certain visas receive priority over others. The types of employment-based visas include:

  • EB-1: These first-preference visas go to priority workers who have an extraordinary ability; for example, doctors, scientists and businesspeople.
  • EB-2: You can seek an EB-2 visa if you have an advanced degree or a national interest waiver. This option can help if you do not have an employer to sponsor you.
  • EB-3: Even if you don’t have an advanced degree, you can seek this third-preference visa to work long-term in the U.S.
  • EB-4: Religious workers, retired officers, neglected juveniles and employees of some international organizations may receive EB-4 visas.
  • EB-5: Finally, if you plan to invest at least $1 million in an American business enterprise, you may seek this type of visa.

These visas have one thing in common: the regulations surrounding them are exceedingly complex. We have successfully helped numerous clients obtain employment visas, seek national interest waivers or sponsor individuals.
