EB-2 Eligibility Requirements
Because the EB-2t visa was meant to apply to individuals with advanced degrees and capabilities, there are a number of different requirements necessary for a non-citizen to be granted this status. These criteria is based on proving to the USCIS that the applicant’s expertise is relevant to their prospective U.S. employment and that they will be using those skills while working here.
Criteria for an EB-2 visa include:
- Holding an advanced degree
- Demonstrating exceptional ability
- Holding a National Interest Waiver
“Demonstrating exceptional ability” and “holding a National Interest Waiver” have their own subset of requirements. These can include having the appropriate academic records, professional licenses, letters proving at least a decade of professional experience, and other documentation.
