EB-1: Employment Based Immigration First Preference

EB-1 (first preference) is available for persons who have meet one of three categories:

  1. Extraordinary Abilities
  2. Exceptional Professors and Researchers
  3. Multinational Executives and Managers

The EB-1 Extraordinary Ability category does not require a definitive job offer. However, outstanding managers and executives as well as professors and researchers should have job offers which meet some particular requirements. For EB-1 priority worker visa candidates, they should demonstrate prove of their accomplishments and abilities by meeting general requirements set by USCIS.

Keep in mind that the EB-2 visa is always a viable option for applicants who have not met the EB-1 visa application requirements. This type of visa applies to professionals who are in possession of advanced degrees as well as persons with extraordinary abilities. Persons holding advanced degrees should show their advanced degree documentation or bachelor’s degree documentation with 5 years of comparable working experience in either a similar or related field.

How to Apply for EB-1 Visa

  • Extraordinary Ability: You can file Form I-140, Petition for Alien Worker.
  • Outstanding Professors and Researchers: An employer files Form I-140, Petition for Alien Worker on your behalf.
  • Multinational Manager or Executive: An employer files USCIS Form I-140, Petition for Alien Worker on your behalf.
