EB1 is a first a First Preference Employment Based Visa for that allows Foreign Nationals to obtain their green card/lawful permanent residency if the applicant possesses extraordinary ability, is an outstanding professor or researcher, or is a multinational executive or manager. Unlike most EB2 and EB3 categories, no labor certification is required.
The EB1 category is subject to the highest threshold with USCIS officers. We will implement strategies tailored to your qualifications and achievements. Contact the Law Office of Andrew Park and we will evaluate if you qualify for EB1 or any other type visa that is applicable.
EB2 visa is a second preference Employment Based Visa for members of professions holding advanced degrees or their equivalent, or who those who possess exceptional talent. The position requires that the foreign national either have an advanced degree such as a master's degree or its equivalent in education and work experience whose services are wanted by a US employer or show exceptional ability in the sciences, arts, or business by showing a degree of expertise significantly above that ordinarily encountered.
An Advanced Degree usually requires a master's degree or higher, however, BA/BS or foreign academic equivalent plus 5 years of progressive post-baccalaureate experience in the specialty may be equivalent to a Master's Degree.
Proof of Exceptional ability includes but not limited to
Degree relating to area of exceptional ability
Letter showing at least 10 years' experience
License to practice profession
Membership in a professional association.
Awards or recognition for achievements related to your field
Applicant has commanded a salary that demonstrates his or her exceptional ability.
The EB3 visa is a Third Preference Employment Based Visa for applicants who are Professional, Skilled, and Other. Unlike EB1 or EB2, you may qualify for green card/permanent residency with just a Bachelor Degree or Work Experience. Many Foreign Nationals apply for EB3 while they are in H1b Status because of the lower threshold to obtain EB3 classification. The downfall is that unlike the EB1 and EB2, the applicant must have Labor Certification filed by the Employer unless you fall under Schedule A of the DOL regulations and could take longer than an EB1 or EB2.
A professional is an applicant that has a bachelor degree or foreign university equivalent and the Degree is required for this job offered by the Employer
As skilled worker is a full time job offered requiring at least two years training or work experience.
Other works include an applicant with less than two years of training and work experience.
