Fairfax, Virginia – September 22, 2015 – For many individuals seeking permanent residency in the United States, their first step toward obtaining an EB-1 visa which will involve PERM (Program Electronic Review Management) labor certification. This system allows people to legally enter the United States on the basis of employment, and PERM labor certification is the process through which said employment is documented.
However, there exist other ways to get a Green Card for those seeking to immigrate to the United States. Thus, Alexandra VA immigration lawyer Beeraj Patel of Pride Immigration Law Firm PLLC is extending his legal services to include processing of EB-1 visa processing, which includes all three categories: EB-1A, EB-1B, and EB-1C.
The three EB-1 categories, which encompass three different types of exception to the condition of employment for a green card, are as follows:
• EB-1A “Extraordinary Ability”
As its name suggests, candidates whose abilities excel beyond the ordinary in athletics, science, art or business may qualify for EB-1A status, if their extraordinary ability has been recognized over a sustained period of time at a national or international level. Documentation of this acclaim must be provided.
• EB-1B “Outstanding Researcher or Professor”
The EB-1B visa is for internationally recognized professors or researchers in a specific field of study. Beneficiaries of the EB-1B visa ought to have at least three years of experience in relevant research or teaching, and should be pursuing a tenured position in his or her particular field in a university, or a tenure-track position. Rules differ for private employers, who must have a minimum of three full-time researchers in a particular field who have attained documented success.
• EB-1C “Managers and Executive Transferees”
Executives and managers who already meet L1-A non-immigrant standards may be able to take advantage of a EB-1C visa if they seek legal permanent residency. In fact, any person who desires a EB-1C visa will have a better case if they previously were in L1-A status.
The immigration process can be a difficult one, and the legal issues can be complicated. Thankfully there are multiple routes to obtaining a Green Card, and the EB-1 categories exist to enable certain individuals to migrate to the United States who otherwise would not qualify under PERM labor certification. Because the conditions to be met are are very specific (the above is only a broad summary outline), applicants should seek legal counsel from an experienced attorney. Beeraj Patel has handled multiple EB-1 cases and is prepared to help applicants through this process.
