Employer Based Immigrant Visa
Texas Immigration Attorney
EB-1 Priority Workers
The EB-1 classification is open to individuals with extraordinary ability in the arts, sciences, education, business or athletics; to outstanding professors or researchers; or to managers and executives.
In these fields, you should be internationally recognized for your contribution to your field, with at least three years employment history. As a manager or executive, you are required to have been employed outside the U.S. for at least one of the past three years.
EB-2 Professionals with advanced degrees or persons with exceptional ability
The EB-2 is open to individuals with exceptional ability in the sciences, arts or business, professionals with advanced degrees and physicians intending to practice medicine in underserved areas.
This is a "lesser" of the EB-1, meaning that you may be outstanding in your field yet do rise to the "extraordinary" ability of the EB-1. However, like the EB-1, you will need to demonstrate substantial achievement in your field.
EB-3 Skilled or professional workers
The EB-3 classification includes individuals with at least two years' experience as skilled workers, professionals with bachelors' degrees, or workers who can contribute other skills to the U.S. which are unavailable otherwise.
A skilled worker should have at least two years' experience either through on-the-job training or higher education. Professional workers must have the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor's degree.
EB-4 Special Immigrants
EB-4 encompasses religious workers or employees of the U.S. abroad. This documentation needed for an EB-4 is similar to an R Visa; you will be required to provide substantial proof that you are in a calling with your religious denomination.
EB-5 Investment Immigrants
10,000 immigrant visas per year are available to qualified individuals seeking permanent resident status on the basis of their engagement in a new commercial enterprise. You must invest over $1,000,000 in most cases to be eligible for this visa.
