EB-1 – Outstanding Professors and Researchers

Basic Requirements:

This employment-based, first-preference visa status (greed card) is intended for international professors and researchers who are considered to be outstanding in their respective fields. To be considered for this preference category, applicants must meet all three of the following conditions: 1) be internationally recognized as outstanding in a specific field of academia; 2) have already dedicated a minimum of three years of research or teaching in that specific field; and 3) have already been offered a tenure-track or tenured position or a comparable position as researcher in that field.

Application Process:

Applicants for this EB-1 visa status will not need to first obtain labor certification (PERM). In addition, applicants from most countries (with the exception of China and India) will be allowed to go ahead and file their applications and petitions without having to wait for a numerical availability—this is not expected to change for most countries either.

Family Members:

Under the derivative status of the EB-1 visa status, the spouse and any children of the primary beneficiary may obtain a green card that will allow them to accompany the primary beneficiary into the United States. Children must be under the age of 21 and not currently married to be eligible.
