EB1 Visa for Extraordinary Ability, Outstanding Professors/Researchers, & Executives
EB-1A Extraordinary Ability
To qualify as a person of “extraordinary ability”, in the sciences, arts, education, business, and or athletics, applicants in this category must submit extensive documentation demonstrating sustained national or international acclaim and recognition in their field of expertise.
Such applicants do not require a sponsoring employer nor do they have to have a specific job offer, so long as they are entering the U.S. to continue work in the field for which they are recognized to have extraordinary ability.
Also, a labor certification is also not required. The applicant may self sponsor his or her own petition.
Some examples of foreign nationals that may qualify under this category are medical researchers, a successful entrepreneur, a professor of Engineering, a renowned soccer player, a software developer who has a PhD and has been responsible for state-of-the-art innovations that have significantly advanced the field as a whole.
EB-1B Outstanding Professors
To qualify as an “outstanding” professor or researcher, the applicant must have at least three years’ experience in teaching or research, and must be recognized internationally as having outstanding academic achievements in his or her field of expertise.
No labor certification is required for this classification, but the prospective employer, universities or private employers that have established research departments with at least three full-time employees dedicated to research activities, must provide a job offer and serve as the petitioner in the I-140 petition.
EB-1C International Transfers
Certain executives and managers subject to an international transfer to the United States are eligible under the EB-1C category.
The applicant must have been employed for at least one of the three preceding years by the overseas affiliate, parent, subsidiary, or branch of a U.S. employer.
The applicant must be coming to work in a managerial or executive capacity and the executive or high-level manager must be responsible for directing the company or an important department of the enterprise.
No labor certification is required for this classification, but the prospective employer must provide a job offer and serve as the petitioner in the I-140 petition.
