Permanent Residency Through Employment
Our firm regularly prepares and submits applications for an EB-1(c) immigrant visa on behalf of our well-qualified clients. The USCIS does not automatically grant these petitions so the proper preparation of all the relevant information is crucial. A world-famous and internationally-acclaimed applicant is one thing but most petitioners need the guidance of experienced immigration lawyers.
Should I Pursue an EB-1(c) Visa?
An EB-1(c) immigrant visa entitles the holder to permanently work and reside in the United States. This is also known as an employment based immigrant visa.
The government refers to the EB-1(c) as one of the five employment-based immigrant visa preferences or categories.
There is no labor certification required of the sponsoring employer.
If you are a certain multinational executive or manager, you may qualify for the EB-1(c) immigrant visa which is an employment-based, first-preference visa.
The government issues approximately 140,000 total immigrant visas each year.
Do I need an offer of employment for an EB-1(c) Visa?
Yes, in order to obtain an EB-1(c) visa you must have an offer of employment in the United States. However, there is no labor certification required.
How do I qualify for an Immigrant Visa based on my status as a multinational executive or manager?
Your petitioning employer must be in the United States. The position must be as either a manager or an executive. You must demonstrate that you have been doing business in the United States for a minimum of one year as a legal entity and that you have a qualifying relationship with the entity that provided you with employment abroad as a manager or an executive.
How Do I Apply for an EB-1(c) Immigrant Visa?
A Form I-140, Petition for Alien Worker, and supporting documentation, must be filed by your employer in order to apply for an EB-1(c) immigrant visa. Your employer must also prove a continuing ability to pay the offered wage.
Will my family also be granted admission to the United States?
If you obtain an EB-1(c) immigrant visa, then your spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 may be eligible to apply for admission to the United States with an E-14 or E-15.
