What is the EB1-2 Visa?

The second EB1 Visa is for those who are outstanding researchers or professors. This means you must be able to show you are internationally recognised for your achievements in a particular field.

That will include having three years’ experience in teaching or research in that particular academic area.

Your reason for entering the United States must be for teaching purposes in an educational establishment or research position at a university or other higher education institution.

The Visa EB1 is a permanent residency Green Card which enables the holder to live and work for good in the United States.

It is held in high esteem because of its priority dates, meaning there can be far fewer waiting times compared to other categories. In addition, there isn’t a requirement to go through the PERM (Program Electronic Review Management) process, so you do not need to obtain a Department of Labor (DOL) certificate for the position.

Because of this and other factors, it’s particularly desirable. The desirability of such a position sets a high bar for qualification and involves a high level of application scrutiny.

Frequently Asked Questions

The EB1-2 Visa process involves applying for a Green Card, which gives you permanent residency in the United States. It’s a highly-desired visa category. There are three distinct subsets: ones who are eligible for a visa for extraordinary ability in their field; have been recognised as outstanding professors, and those who are executives or managers of multinational corporations.

They are wanted visas and are reserved for the brightest and best. The USCIS does not just give them away. Instead, those who want one of these visas must produce an application that delivers what the EB1 requirements outline, and beyond.

The EB1-2 Outstanding Professor/Researcher Visa is a Green Card visa which provides permanent residency to nationals who want to reside in the USA. For some countries, individuals have to wait years until these visas are immediately available.

It is, ultimately, for people who are exceptional in their fields: outstanding professors and research academics who are internationally recognised for their excellence. Exceptional professionals may also be selected to be part of the J1 Exchange Visitor Program.

You can submit an EB1-2 Visa Outstanding researcher/professor application online or through a lawyer at the Immigration Advice Service. The EB1-2 Outstanding Researcher/Professor Visa is one of the hardest US visas to obtain. Individuals with extraordinary ability can follow different immigration route to enter the U.S., such as the O visa category. That’s why, here at IAS, we ensure that we are closely scrutinising your application to ensure it receives a successful outcome.

Our specially-trained lawyers will be able to advise you on the visa and how to submit a successful application, including what to do in the interview with the USCIS.
