position. It is usually a cumbersome and costly

process that can potentially eliminate a foreign

worker\'s eligibility for a position. The fact that

EB-1 does not require this certification process

is a tremendous benefit.

If you are interested in the Extraordinary Ability

category, you do not need to have a permanent

job offer in order to be eligible. The is an

advantage because it allows you to apply on

your own rather than having to rely on an

employer to apply on your behalf. However, if

you are interested in the Outstanding Professor

and Researcher category or the Multinational

Executives and Managers category, you will

need to have a permanent job offer on the

table--the intended employer will need to file

your application for you.







You have received an award for excellence of international

notability within your field.

You hold membership to group(s) that require outstanding

and Managers category, you will need

to meet the following conditions:

You must have been employed as a manager or executive

for a company outside the U.S. for at least one year within

the last three years.

minimum of one year.


Extraordinary Ability: If you are applying for the

Extraordinary Ability group, you will have to file Form

does not require PERM labor certification, you may file

the form on your own behalf.

EB-1 Green Card

Process Summary

Outstanding Professors and Researchers: This group

also does not require perm labor certification. However,

it does require a permanent job offer. Because of this,

you will need to have a U.S. employer file form I-140

(Petition for Alien Worker) on your behalf.

If you wish to pursue an EB-1 green

card, we’ve put together a few steps to

get you started based on which EB-1

category you choose:

Multinational Manager or Executive: Like the

Outstanding Professors and Researchers group, this

group requires that your intended employer offer you a

permanent position and file form I-140 on your behalf.

Those hoping for EB-1 green card eligibility in this

group will have to have been employed as a manager or

executive for a company in a country outside the U.S.

for at least one year within the last three years.
