An employment-based green card is a document that gives legal permission for a foreign national to live and work in the United States. This is quite a popular means by which foreign nationals can obtain a green card. Though the process can be quite lengthy and complicated, we got you covered!
A foreign national can get an employment-based green card if an employer sponsors them for a position within the United States. The individual may be living in the United States on a non-immigrant visa, such as an H1B or student visa. The employer must have tried to fill the position with a current green card holder or U.S. citizen before hiring a foreign national.
Categories of employment-based Green Cards are summarized below:
EB-1 priority workers consider persons of extraordinary abilities in art, science, education, business, or sports. This entails prioritizing individuals who have achieved a considerable bit of acclaim and contributed to innovations in their field of study. EB-1 also gives preference to managers and executives of multinational corporations.
This category prefers foreign nationals with above-average skills, which can benefit national interest from an educational or cultural standpoint. EB-2 also includes Individuals with extraordinary ability in science, art, or business fields based on achievements or peer recognition.
It also includes professionals with advanced degrees and five years of work experience. Physicians and Health workers who will practice medicine in the U.S. in an underserved area also count under EB-2.
EB-3 considers skilled workers with a minimum of two years of training or experience and foreign nationals with an undergraduate degree or vocational training. It also includes unskilled workers with experience that is not readily available in the United States.
EB-4 applicants are mostly religious workers affiliated with a nonprofit organization in the United States, Government employees, former workers outside of the country, and people who worked as translators with the United States Armed Forces in Iraq or Afghanistan.
