What Classifies an EB-1 Visa?

This visa is an employment-based green card that's available to foreign nationals who are exceptional in their field. To be eligible for this visa, you must have an advanced degree and a job offer from a U.S. employer. The process of obtaining an EB-I visa can be complex, so it’s important to work with an experienced immigration attorney. At the Law Office of Raymond O. Griffith, we have years of experience helping individuals obtain EB-I visas.

How Can You Apply For EB-1 Visas? 

The U.S. employer obtains labor certification and files the necessary petitions. If approved, the employee then applies for the EB-I visa in the U.S. Embassy in their home country. If you're applying based on “Extraordinary Abilities,” then you can self-sponsor. For Professor/Researcher and Multinational Manager EB-I visas, you must have an employer file the petition. 

The Law Office of Raymond O. Griffith will be able to guide you through the process and help with your application every step of the way. Contact us today to learn more about EB-1 visas.
