Your Guide to EB-1C Visa Requirements

EB-1C visas allow multinational managers and executives “employment-based” entry into the United States, as well as a path to a green card if desired.  If you have been employed abroad by a qualifying country and are permanently transferred to a U.S. location in a managerial or executive capacity, you may qualify.

What You Should Know

As with all employment-based immigrations, there are strict qualifications an applicant must meet. First, the company that is petitioning for you must have employed you for at least one year out of the previous three years. You may have been employed by the parent company, a subsidiary, or an affiliate, as long as the business entity abroad and the U.S.-based petitioner share more than 50% common ownership.

In addition, another EB-1C requirement is that your employment abroad must have been in a managerial or executive capacity, and the same must be true for your intended position in the U.S. While these are the basic requirements, there are other fine details to consider; do your research and talk to an immigration lawyer if you’re still unsure whether you qualify.
