Category EB1-A offers Green Card for professionals with extraordinary ability

- Jul/2017

Many professionals of the most diverse nationalities have an excellent academic level and relevant work experience proven in their areas of expertise. Many of these people have plans to live and work in the United States to advance their careers in one of the most culturally and economically dynamic countries in the world. But often the lack of information about how to make this transition within the legal norms and with total security ends up delaying this project.

EB1-A is a Green Card modality available to people with distinctions in their areas of professional and academic performance. Foreigners residing in the US or abroad are eligible to apply for this category as long as they meet the USCIS requirements: ability to demonstrate extraordinary ability in science, arts, education, business or athletics through national or international acclamation, and prove this extraordinary ability with the support of extensive documentation.

Awards that prove the public recognition of your career and your extraordinary abilities are of extreme importance to support your request. In the absence of an award, however, candidates can still demonstrate their extraordinary skills backed by extensive documentation, meeting at least three of the ten criteria set by the Immigration Department.

In addition to meeting the criteria, you must prove that your work will bring substantial benefit to US national interests, candidates must prove that once residing in the country, they will continue to work in the field where they demonstrate extraordinary abilities.

The United States, Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East offer many opportunities to professionals with a solid background, proven experience, and differentiated skills in their field. This window of opportunity attracts a growing number of foreigners.
