EB-1 Visa

The EB-1 Visa, or First Preference Immigration Petition, is an employment-based petition for permanent residence for immigrants with extraordinary ability in the arts, athletics, business, education or science. This extraordinary ability must be well documented by national or international acclaim or be highly recognized within the field. The EB-1 Visa is reserved for individuals that are one of a very small group that have risen to the top of their field. In addition, the extraordinary ability should substantially benefit the United States.
Though a specific job offer is not necessarily required for an immigrant to be granted an EB-1 Visa, clear evidence that they are planning to continue their work in their chosen field in the U.S. must be presented.

EB-1 Visa

The documentation required to show “extraordinary ability” is the most important aspect of the EB-1 Visa.Having won an internationally recognized award is the most successful way to prove extraordinary ability; otherwise the immigrant must provide three types of evidence from the following:

Receipt of lesser nationally or internationally recognized prizes or awards for excellence in the field of endeavor.
Membership in associations in the field which demand outstanding achievement of their members.
Published material about the applicant in professional or major trade publications or other major media.
Evidence that the applicant has judged the work of others, either individually or on a panel.
Evidence of the applicant’s original scientific, scholarly, artistic, athletic or business-related contributions of major significance to the field.
Evidence of the applicant’s authorship of scholarly articles in professional or major trade publications or other major media.
Evidence that the applicant’s work has been displayed at artistic exhibitions or showcases.
Performance of a leading or critical role in distinguished organizations.
Evidence that the applicant commands a high salary or other significantly high compensation in relation to others in the field
Evidence of commercial successes in the performing arts.
