Every fiscal year, the U.S. creates approximately 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas. Our lawyers help you apply for such visas to immigrate to the U.S. (in most cases, with your spouse and minor children) and be a part of the American labor force.
Foreign nationals fall into five employment-based immigrant visa preference categories.
1. Priority Workers and Persons of Extraordinary Abilities
The First Preference (EB-1) category includes persons who possess extraordinary abilities in the arts, sciences, education, athletics, or business; outstanding professors and researchers; and multinational managers or executives.
2. Professionals with Advanced Degrees or Persons with Exceptional Ability
The Second Preference (EB-2) category includes professionals holding an advanced degree (beyond a baccalaureate degree) and individuals with exceptional ability in the arts, sciences, or business.
3. Skilled Workers, Professionals, and Other Workers
The Third Preference (EB-3) category includes skilled workers (with jobs requiring a minimum of 2 years of training or experience that’s neither temporary nor seasonal); professionals (with jobs requiring at least a baccalaureate degree); and other workers (jobs requiring less than 2 years training or experience, such as caregivers and housekeepers).
4. Special Immigrants
The Fourth Preference (EB-4) category includes ministers and non-ministers in religious vocations and occupations who perform religious work in a full-time compensated position.
