What is an EB1-1 Visa?
The EB1-1 Visa can be used to enter the US on the grounds of extraordinary ability. This means you can show “sustained national or international acclaim” in your particular field (which includes the arts, the sciences, education, athletics or business). It is part of the visa family which grants permanent residency; meaning if you get it, you can stay in the US indefinitely.
To achieve this visa, you must be able to demonstrate your ‘extraordinary ability’. This means you can show you are in the top one per cent in terms of expertise in your field. A Nobel Prize, for example, would qualify as evidence.
Separately, you must also meet at least 3 out of 10 criteria set by the USCIS. Alternatively, if you can provide evidence of a truly outstanding single achievement, that will also be accepted.
The EB1-1 Extraordinary Ability Visa is seen as particularly desirable because the wait for acceptance can be markedly shorter than for other entry routes. Additionally, you do not have to obtain Labor certification: in other words, US businesses are not required to see if the role can be filled domestically first.
