Who can qualify for an employment-based visa?

If you're an immigrant living in another country but planning to come to the United States, you need to understand how to qualify for an employment-based visa. This type of visa is based on three subgroups, one of which you must fall under.

The three subgroups include people with extraordinary abilities, multinational managers or executives and outstanding professors and researchers. If you are any of these individuals, you can apply for a visa to work in the United States.

What is a person with an extraordinary ability?

This person has specialized abilities in business, education, the sciences, art or athletics. They should have national or international acclaim for their achievements.

What is an outstanding researcher or professor?

This is someone who has three or more years of experience in their field and who has achieved international recognition. Applicants must be trying to come to the U.S. to work at a research position at a university or similar institution or to pursue tenure track teaching or tenure itself.

What are multinational executives or managers?

These are people who are or who have been employed for at one of three of the last three years by an affiliate, branch or other subsection of an employer in the United States. The affiliate must be located outside the U.S.

If you believe you fall under one of these categories, you may qualify to come and work in the United States through an employment-based visa. Your attorney can help you apply and submit the correct documents to help you pursue your right to work in the United States as soon as possible.
