EB-1 First Preference – Employment Based Immigration
Individuals who fall into one of the following categories may apply for a First Preference Employment Based Immigration EB-1 (Green Card):
- International Transferee Executives and Managers: This subcategory refers to managers and executives who are looking to come to the United States to start a new office or business or to those who are employed by a reputable international company and are being transferred to the United States.
- Extraordinary Workers: Extraordinary workers have evidence of superior abilities than American job applicants in the fields of art, science, business, education, or athletics. Typically, there must be proof of such skill provided in the application process.
- Outstanding Professors and Researchers: Highly acknowledged scholars or scientists in their fields who are coming to the United States for a research position at a scholarly institution receive their EB-1 under this category.
A lawyer can help you determine which category to apply under.
Advantages of this Application Process
Of all employment-based options for green card applications, the EB-1 is one of the fastest ways to obtain permanent United States residency. Every year, 140,000 applicants are granted green cards under the employment-based category of green cards. Currently, the United States utilizes a per-country cap to limit the number of EB-1 green cards issued, with each country allotted an amount equal to 7 percent of all green cards available each year. The First Preference EB-1 is fastest of all employment-based categories. With its designation as “First Preference,” this category of employment-based preferences is given a significant advantage over other employment-based categories for application. Critically, Labor Certification (PERM) is not required for EB-1 First Preference applicants. Additionally, the highly-skilled foreign workers (with the exception of workers from India and China) that fall into this category have been allowed to file their petitions and applications for EB-1 designation immediately, without having to wait for numerical availability, since 1990.
As the United States is likely to continue to give preference to these highly skilled and desirable workers, the immediate availability that EB-1 designation affords applicants is likely to continue for foreign workers from applicable countries. To learn more, contact an Austin immigration lawyer and discuss whether you may file for EB-1 First Preference – Employment Based Immigration.
For individuals who receive EB-1 First Preference – Employment Based Immigration status, their spouse and children, so long as they are unmarried and under 21, are also eligible to receive green cards should they choose to accompany the main beneficiary of the EB-1 status.
