Advantages of EB-1 Visas

Why Apply for an EB-1?

The EB-1 visa helps individuals from around the world pursue their dreams. This is an employment-based visa awarded to exceptional achievers, teachers, and business-people. The EB-1 visa offers several key advantages over a regular visa, listed below.

The EB-1 Does Not Require an Existing Job Offer

One of the greatest advantages of the EB-1 Extraordinary Ability visa is that eligible individuals do not need to have a job offer. However, you must submit evidence that you are going to work in the US in your area of extraordinary ability.

This evidence may include:

  • A letter from a current or prospective employer
  • An employment contract
  • An affidavit detailing the plan start or continue one's work in the United States.

An employer may sign and file an EB-1 petition or it may be signed and filed by the beneficiary.

An EB-1 Visa Saves You Time

The immigration process in the U.S. is notoriously lengthy. Many visas take long periods of time to process and approve, but the EB-1 visa can be relatively quick and straightforward.

First, EB-1s do not require a labor certification. Labor certification is the lengthy process that employers undergo to prove there are no qualified US citizens to perform the job. EB-1 applicants can avoid this process and save valuable time.

Other time-saving advantages include:

  • Premium processing option: When you file your application, you can elect for premium processing, which will alert you as to whether your case was successful within 15 days (unless there is a Request for Evidence or Notice of Intent to Deny challenge)
  • Concurrent filing: When filing for an EB-1 visa on Form I-140, you can file concurrently with a permanent residence application on Form I-485 as long as you meet certain qualifications. To qualify, your EB-1 priority date must be current and your PERM must have been approved by USCIS.
  • Early work authorization: If you file for permanent residence concurrently, USCIS can authorize your spouse and/or children under age 21 to start working in the country before permanent residence is approved
