What is An EB-1 Visa?

EB-1 is an employment-based immigrant visa category. As an immigrant visa the qualified individual would receive permanent residency based on employment and can be self-petitioned, i.e. it does not necessarily require employer sponsorship. There are per-country limits for this visa as well as favored, or preferred, immigration sub-categories. This first preference visa category includes the following three qualification sub-categories:

  • EB1-A Foreign nationals with demonstrated extraordinary abilities;
  • EB1-B Foreign nationals that are outstanding professors or researchers; or
  • EB1-C Foreign nationals that are multinational executives/managers of certain foreign companies transferring to the US.

Qualification in one of these categories must be demonstrated by meeting a number of specific criteria and requirements.
