EB-1 visas are reserved for non-citizens looking to come to the U.S. who are considered to be exceptional in their field or have extraordinary abilities. The “1” indicates first preference, meaning that these are individuals that the U.S. would potentially want to enter the country to contribute to industry, culture, or even work with our own government.

EB-1 Requirements

Individuals who can qualify for an EB-1 visa fall into three different categories: someone with extraordinary abilities, an outstanding professor or researcher, or a multinational manager or executive. The requirements for each of these categories varies, but in each case, the credentials of the individual in the particular field must be verified.

The specific nature of each applicant category is as follows:

  • Extraordinary Ability: this applies to professionals and academics, but also researchers, athletes, artists, and others who have received acclaim. No pre-existing U.S. job offer is required for these individuals.
  • Multinational Executive: these professionals must have worked at an overseas company for at least one year before proposing to expand it into the U.S.
  • Outstanding Professor or Researcher: These academic applicants must prove that their work has been internationally recognized in a field where they have at least three years of experience. These applicants must be coming to the U.S. for a position at a college or university.
