USA and the UK
The third EB1 Visa is for those who are executives. To qualify for this, you will need to be an executive or manager of a multinational corporation.
If approved, you will be able to live, work and settle in the United States on a permanent basis. It will also allow your unmarried spouse entry to the country and any children who are not married and under the age of 21.
There are three EB1 Visas in total: the extraordinary ability visa, the outstanding researcher visa, and the executive visa. The EB1 is one of the most wanted permanent residency cards for two reasons:
- It can be issued a lot faster than other types of visas, and there are no arbitrary waiting times.
- There is also no PERM (Program Electronic Review Management) process requirement. That means the Department of Labor (DOL) does not have to carry out a market test to see if the vacancy can be filled domestically.

Because obtaining an EB1 Visa also secures a Green Card, the EB1 Visa process can be stringent and difficult. Having said this, it is more than possible to make a successful application.
To do so will involve both the employer and the foreign employee. The first is that the employer in the USA submits the necessary documents. If that is successful, the employee then goes to a US Embassy in their home country and applies for the EB1 visa themselves.
If you are applying for the EB1-3 Visa as an executive, an employer must submit the documents on your behalf.
Usually, the UCSIS requires a Labour Certification for EB3 Visas and other work permits. The good news with the EB1-3 is that you do not have to get this PERM (Program Electronic Review Management) approval.
In addition, it means the DOL does not have to carry out a market test to see if the job can be filled domestically.
In order to qualify for the EB1-3 Visa as an executive, you must have a valid job offer from the organisation which has had a branch or subsidiary in the foreign country you were employed with or worked from.
The time it takes to process an EB1 Visa can be anything from a few months to a few years. There is a cap though, which means the actual length of time it takes can be very long. It all depends on when you apply and whether you are next in line from the USCIS.
If the yearly cap has already been reached, there are several other visas to be employed in a U.S.-based branch of your company. For example, the L1 Visa petition processing time is usually shorter.
The EB1 Visa is used as three routes of entry to the US: the extraordinary ability visa, the outstanding professor visa and the executive visa. For the extraordinary ability visa, you must be able to showcase you have an exceptional capability of being able to perform a specific job or role.
For the outstanding professor visa, you must be an internationally recognised academic in your particular field.
And for the executive visa, you must be a multinational manager or executive who have been working for a US branch for at least one year out of the last three years. Their position in the USA must be at the same level or greater than in the country from which they have come.
The EB1-3 Executive Visa is one of the hardest US visas to obtain. 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.
