GET TO KNOW THE “EB” VISAS FOR IMMIGRATION IN THE USA

“EB” (Employment-Based) visas are part of a category created by U.S. immigration to allow specific immigrants to become permanent residents in the United States (Green Card holders) based on career, education, employment, skilled work, or investment criteria.

Every day more people find out about the many advantages of “EB” visas. This category is an excellent immigration option for those who wish to undertake or advance their careers in a country that offers the best professional and personal opportunities in the world.

EB-1

EB1 is a visa intended for people who have demonstrated “extraordinary abilities” in the fields of arts, sciences, education, business, and athletics, and who are nationally, or even internationally, recognized for their professional contributions. Many doctors, dentists, scientists, artists, businessmen, educators, and athletes are eligible for this category, as long as they can meet many requirements of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

EB-2

In this category, the applicant needs to prove that he/she has an outstanding work background and, in many cases, a higher education degree. Foreigners who come to the United States with EB-2 visas collaborate directly with the American labor market, which has a shortage of professionals in areas of national importance. Engineers, doctors, dentists, nurses, physiotherapists, IT professionals, airline pilots, architects, among others, may be eligible for this category. In many cases, the EB-2 visa can be issued without a job offer or employer, with the applicant being eligible based solely on their own background and intellectual capital. Entrepreneurs who intend to expand their business into the U.S. may also be eligible.

EB-3

EB-3 is aimed at skilled workers with at least 2 years of experience or training, professionals whose work in the U.S. requires at least a U.S. bachelor’s degree or equivalent education in another country, or some other less frequent categories of workers. In this type of immigration petition, the applicant will have to receive a genuine job offer from an employer in the United States and go through a procedure with the U.S. Department of Labor to obtain a labor certificate.

EB-5

EB-5 Visa is known as the “investor visa”, and can be granted to foreigners who intend to start a business in the United States. Besides a minimum investment which amount will be determined according to the location in which the applicant plans to invest, it is necessary to prove that the business will create jobs and move the American economy. EB-5 initially grants a temporary Green Card, and later a permanent Green Card, if the holder can demonstrate that his/her U.S. enterprise remains operational and profitable.
