Miami EB-4 Visa Lawyer
Helping Special Immigrants Worldwide
If you are a foreign national and you want to work in the United States, you will need a visa. One of the most common types of visas is the EB-4 visa. EB-4 visas are available to foreign nationals who are special immigrants.
This includes those who are:
- Religious workers
- Special Immigrant Juveniles (SIJ)
- Members of the United States armed forces
- Specific U.S. government employees
- Specific broadcasters, such as a reporter, translator, and more
Our EB-4 visa attorney in Miami can help you navigate the visa application process and can represent you in immigration court if necessary.
Qualifying for an EB-4 Visa
To be eligible for the EB-4 visa, you must satisfy the criteria established for one of the distinct categories within the employment-based fourth preference. Each category imposes unique conditions, so it is crucial to refer to the USCIS website or seek guidance from a knowledgeable EB-4 attorney to be sure of your eligibility.
Religious Worker Criteria
A special immigrant religious worker is a noncitizen coming to the US to work full-time in a religious role for a non-profit religious organization, one authorized by a group tax exemption holder, or an organization affiliated with a US religious denomination. Here’s how to qualify:
Membership and Religious Organization: You must have been a member of a religious denomination with a bona fide non-profit religious organization in the US for at least two years before filing.
Religious Work Experience: You should have worked in a religious role (minister or religious occupation) for at least two years, starting from age 14, either in the US or abroad, before filing your petition with USCIS. Your prior religious work doesn’t have to be the same as the work you’ll do now.
Work Continuity: A break in your work, not exceeding two years, is allowed as long as you are still employed as a religious worker, and the break is for religious training or a sabbatical. You must also have maintained membership in the petitioner’s denomination during the two years of qualifying employment.
