Experienced Texas Attorney Handling Immigration for Employment Opportunities

In the United States, employment-based immigration allows foreign nationals to work and live in the country based on their skills, qualifications, and job offers from U.S. employers. This type of immigration is a key driver of economic growth and innovation, attracting talented individuals from around the world to contribute to various industries.

Different Categories of Employment-Based Immigration

EB immigrant visas will allow employees to move to the United States and become lawful permanent residents (Green Card holders). These visas are issued according to the following levels of priority:

  • EB-1: This category is reserved for priority workers who demonstrate extraordinary ability in athletics, science, business, the arts, or education. College professors, outstanding researchers, and executives or managers working for multinational companies may also qualify for these visas.
  • EB-2: Professionals with advanced degrees or extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, or business may qualify under this category. In addition, qualified physicians serving underserved areas may also apply.
  • EB-3: Skilled workers with at least two years of experience, professionals with a baccalaureate degree, and other workers performing unskilled labor fall under this category. Labor certifications are usually required for applicants.
  • EB-4: This category covers special immigrants such as religious ministers, workers, certain types of physicians, military personnel serving overseas interests, and interpreters and translators working with the U.S. government in certain countries.
  • EB-5: This sub-classification includes investors who are willing to invest in U.S. companies that will lead to the creation of jobs and further strengthening of the economy.

Certain types of nonimmigrant visas may also be available, and people who receive these visas will be granted authorization to enter and remain in the U.S. on a temporary basis. H-1B visas are among the most sought-after types of nonimmigrant employment visas, and they may be available to workers who have extraordinary skills and high levels of experience in specialized fields.
