The Employment First Preference: Getting to the United States

As an immigrant, you want to make sure you have all the correct documents to work in this country. One of the documents you may want to obtain is called the Employment First Preference. This, also known as an E1 visa, is created specifically for those who have abilities of which the United States is in need.

There are a few categories of people who qualify for E1 visas. They include those with extraordinary abilities, those who are recognized as outstanding researchers or professors and those who are multinational executives or managers. These individuals all have specific purposes in the United States and are recognized as experts in their respective fields.

People with extraordinary abilities don't necessarily have to be business executives or mathematicians. They could include people famous in the arts, sciences or education. They could be athletes or business people. To qualify, they need to have recognition nationally or internationally in their respective fields.

Executives and managers who want to come to the United states need to show that they've been employed by an overseas affiliate for at least three years prior to the application. Those coming to the United States must be managers or executives and be filling the same level role in the United States.

Finally, outstanding professors and researchers can qualify to come to the United States with this visa if they show they are coming to the U.S. on tenure track teaching, to pursue tenure or to take a research position comparable to their current position overseas.

Getting a visa can be a difficult process, and it has the potential to be complicated. The right help makes a difference. Our website has more information on how you can come to the United States to work legally.
