EB1 Green Card

These visas are granted to people in three categories:

  1. multinational businessmen and women,
  2. researchers and professors, and
  3. foreign nationals with special talents or extraordinary abilities – called priority workers.

People granted EB1 Visas do not need to have labor certifications. And with one of the EB1 categories (EB1-A), the beneficiary does not need a job offer. He or she can self-petition.

There are 40,000 EB1 visas granted each year to:

  • EB1-A: People of extraordinary ability in the arts, science, business, athletics and education
  • EB1-B: Researchers and professors of outstanding ability
  • EB1-C: Executives and Managers of International companies who are transferred permanently to the U.S.
  • These petitioners do not need a PERM labor certification.

Self-Petition Allowed?

  • EB-1As are allowed to self-petition, without an employment offer
  • The other categories of EB-1s are not able to self-petition

What Is Extraordinary Ability for EB1-A?

An EB-1A petitioner must have received a major international award, like a Pulitzer or Olympic medal, or meet three of these criteria:

  1. Lesser national or international award
  2. Membership in associations in your field which demand achievement
  3. Publication
  4. Having served as a judge of others in your field
  5. Original scientific, scholarly, artistic, athletic or business related contributions
  6. Having work displayed at exhibitions
  7. Performed a leading or critical role in distinguished organizations
  8. High salary commensurate with the field
  9. Commercial success in the performing arts
