Employment Based Immigration

EB-1 Priority Worker  
  • The first preference EB-1 category is for priority workers. It’s broken down into three categories reserved for persons of extraordinary ability (EB-1A), outstanding professors and researchers (EB-1B), and multinational executives and managers (EB-1C). Employers generally must file an employment-based petition after making a permanent offer of employment. However, self-sponsorship, based on qualifications, is available in the EB-1A extraordinary ability category. There is an annual limit of 40,000 EB-1 visas, but candidates can be further limited by per-country limits.

EB-2 Professionals with the Advanced Degrees or Exceptional Ability
  • The second preference Professionals with advanced degrees or their equivalents or foreign nationals with extraordinary talent in the arts, sciences, or business fall under the EB-2 category. Typically, the Department of Labor must approve each individual labor certification before issuing an EB-2 visa. But some foreign nationals can be eligible for a National Interest Waiver. National interest waivers are often given to those with remarkable talent whose employment in the US would be very advantageous to the country.
EB-3 Skilled Workers, Professionals and Unskilled Workers
  • The third preference EB-3 category is for professionals with college degrees, skilled workers with at least two years of training or experience, or “other” workers for unskilled labor that is not temporary or seasonal. An EB-3 visa comes with a less rigorous set of standards, but there is also a longer backlog.
