Your Successful EB-1 Green Card Starts Here

The EB-1 Green Card is for those who have reached the highest level in their field. It’s an Employment-based First Preference Immigration petition (EB-1) only available to most accomplished in their field.

There are three main types of EB visa, The EB-1A, the EB-1B and the EB-1C. Each of these is aimed at specific fields of excellence.

  • EB-1A for Aliens of Extraordinary Ability
  • EB-1B for Outstanding Researchers or Professors
  • EB-1C for Managers and Executives

Should you qualify for the EB-1 petition you do not need to meet the Labor Certification requirement for the green card eb-1 process. You may also submit other petitions in parallel with your EB visa application. So you could apply for the National Interest Waiver (NIW) pending an Eb1 decision. The Labor Certification process is in place to protect American workers with suitable qualifications. Even if a US worker only meets a minimum standard they will take precedence over an Alien who could be more qualified and skilled. However, a permanent offer of employment is mot required for the EB1 process, so you will not need to worry about this, usually costly additional stage.


EB Visa Petition Options

EB1A applicants do not need any prove that they have a U.S. employer but will need to satisfy Immigration that they will continue to work within their field of extraordinary ability. They may file their own petition. For EB-1B and EB-1C applicants, you will require an offer of employment and the company must petition on your behalf. This is the main difference between the EB-1A and the other two visas.
