Frequently Asked Questions About Employment-Based Immigration

If you are a citizen of another country and want to come to the U.S. for a job, you will need to apply for a visa. While there are differing requirements depending on the specifics of your situation, there is plenty of information available on the website of the U.S. Department of State. We have also included the answers to several frequently asked questions below. If you do not see your question here or if you would like to speak with a member of our team about your situation, contact us at (512) 323-2333 today.

Are there any fees associated with obtaining an employment-based visa?

There are several fees that you may be required to pay when applying for an employment-based visa. These fees often include application fees, medical examination expenses, and others. While the fees may change, you can find the updated list of current fees on the U.S. Department of State’s services page. It is also recommended that you consult with your immigration attorney to discuss which fees you may owe before you apply.

Do I have to be sponsored by an employer to qualify?

No, if you qualify for an EB-1A “extraordinary” ability visa. This applies to individuals who have exceptional abilities in business, sports, science, arts, or education. You may also qualify for this if your abilities serve the national interest of the United States. If you qualify for this type of visa, you can do so on a “self-sponsored’ application, but you will be required to show documentation that demonstrates that you have gained national or international acclaim in your field.

What is a “priority date?”

Whenever you file your immigration application, the date of filing becomes your priority date. Because so many visa applications are filed each year, there are statutory limits on the number of visas that can be issued in certain categories. If there are more qualified applicants in a certain category than there are visas that can be issued, the category is considered to be “oversubscribed”. If a category of visa is oversubscribed, then visas will be issued chronologically in order of the priority date until all of the allotted visas have been issued.
