Visa Options for Employment-Related Immigration.
We advise and assist businesses and employees with their visa applications to achieve their objectives.
Available visa types include:
- EB-1 Visa – Foreign Nationals of Extraordinary Ability, Outstanding Professors and Researchers, and Multinational Executives and Managers – Available to individuals with these skill sets to apply for permanent residency and bypass the costly and time-consuming labor certification process.
- EB-2 Visa – Workers With Advanced Degrees or Exceptional Ability in the Sciences, Arts or Business – Available to foreign workers with advanced degrees or exceptional abilities in the sciences, arts or business to live and work in the U.S. if they have a bona fide job offer and their prospective employer has successfully completed the labor certification process, which generally entails demonstrating through testing of the job market that U.S. workers will not be displaced by the hiring of a foreign national.
- EB-3 Visa – Skilled Workers and Professionals – Available to foreign nationals possessing these skill sets to receive a visa once they have a job offer and their potential employer has completed the labor certification process.
- EB-4 Visa – Special Immigrant Visas for Religious Workers – Available to ministers of religion to apply for permanent residency.
- EB-5 Visa – Investor/Employment Creation Visas – Available to a maximum of 10,000 foreign national investors a year to enter and work in the U.S. for the purpose of investing in new commercial ventures that create employment for 10 individuals (comprising those who invest at least $500,000 in “targeted employment areas” (rural areas or areas experiencing high unemployment of at least 150 percent of the national average) and those who invest $1,000,000 without geographic limitations).
