EB-1 Visas: Your Path To The United States
One of the fastest pathways to permanent residency in the United States is an EB-1 visa. This type of employment-based visa allows foreign nationals with extraordinary skill to immigrate to the U.S. to work. Generally, there is premium processing in this category, and you don’t need job offer or labor certification. If you are interested in this type of visa, you have a challenge ahead of you.
Although obtaining an EB-1 visa is not always easy, we at ERM Immigration Law, PLLC, can help you. Clients reach out to us at our office in Seattle from all around the world when they need help with immigration law issues. They rely on us for our compassion and skill as we help them achieve their goals, including securing EB-1 visas for workers of extraordinary ability.
Will I Qualify For An EB-1 Visa?
EB-1s are the most desirable employment-based visa because their recipients receive first-priority visas. However, EB-1s also have the most selective criteria. You must fall into one of the following three categories:
- Extraordinary ability: To belong to this category, you must have an outstanding ability in science, art, education, athletics, arts, or business.
- Outstanding professor and researcher: This refers to academic professionals who teach at the university level or are superior researchers.
- Multinational executive and manager: Finally, you can seek an EB-1 based on an outstanding ability as a high-level corporate professional.
Because so much is at stake and the immigration process is so fraught with challenges, you should always work with an attorney. Our lawyers have worked with many skilled professionals who wish to emigrate. Sit down with us so we can discuss your situation in-depth and discover which category is best for you.
