What is the EB-1 visa, and what are the eligibility criteria for individuals seeking to obtain it?

Answer: The EB-1 visa is an employment-based immigrant visa category reserved for individuals with extraordinary ability, outstanding professors and researchers, and multinational executives and managers.

To qualify for an EB-1 visa, individuals must meet specific eligibility criteria outlined by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). For individuals with extraordinary ability, they must demonstrate sustained national or international acclaim and recognition for their achievements in fields such as science, arts, education, business, or athletics.

Outstanding professors and researchers must have a demonstrated record of outstanding achievements in their academic field and be internationally recognized. Multinational executives and managers must have been employed in a managerial or executive capacity for a qualifying multinational organization for at least one of the preceding three years.

Navigating the EB-1 visa process requires careful preparation of documentation and evidence to support the individual’s eligibility under one of the designated categories.
