Representing Employers And Workers Around The World
Although they’re one of the most common ways to gain legal permanent status in the U.S., employment-based green cards are challenging to obtain. Whether you’re a foreign national investing in a commercial enterprise, or a business owner petitioning an individual for employment, you would benefit from retaining our San Jose immigration lawyer to handle your business immigrant needs, including but not limited to the following:
- EB-1(a) (Alien of Extraordinary Ability). These visas are intended for people who have exceptional ability in certain fields, and would like to bring their talents to the United States in a work capacity.
- EB-1(b) (Outstanding Professor/Researcher). This visa applies to internationally recognized researchers/academics who wish to do research or teach in the United States.
- EB-1(c) (Multinational Manager or Executive) This visa is for managers or executives of multinational companies who have a permanent job offer from the United States.
- PERM/Labor Certification. This process is for employers who want to hire a foreign national employee permanently, and therefore need to petition for a green card on behalf of the intended employee.
- NIW (National Interest Waiver). This waiver applies to foreign nationals who wish to work in the United States. It waives the need for labor certification and a permanent job offer as long as the immigrant’s proposed endeavor is in the national interest of the United States.
- EB-2 Based on PERM (Advanced Degree/ Exceptional Ability). This ‘second preference’ petition is for foreign national who have ‘exceptional ability’ or who hold an advanced degree or its equivalent.
- EB-3 Based on PERM (Professionals, Skilled, and Other Workers). This visa is intended for professional workers with basic degrees as well as skilled and unskilled workers.
- EB-4 Special Immigrants (including Religious Professionals) This is a green card for foreign nationals including religious workers and those employed by the U.S. government, among others.
