IBP Immigration Law specializes in the three types of EB-1 petitions, catering to individuals with extraordinary ability (EB-1A category), extraordinary professors and researchers (EB-1B category), and multinational executives (EB-1C category). These petitions offer a unique advantage as they do not require a labor certification, bypassing the typically lengthy and complex process. Additionally, the EB-1 petition is eligible for premium processing, allowing for a review and decision within just 15 days (about 2 weeks). With our expertise, we are devoted to guiding you through the EB-1 petition process, ensuring a smooth and efficient path towards your immigration goals.

EB-1A Petitions for Professionals with Extraordinary Ability

The EB-1A preference category is an immigrant visa for professionals that are highly gifted in certain industries like the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics. This category is reserved for individuals that have extraordinary abilities in their professions. With an EB-1A petition approved, a person can get a green card without a job offer from US employer. No Permanent Labor Certification is needed.

EB-1B Petitions for Outstanding Professors and Researchers

The EB-1B preference category is an immigrant visa for outstanding professors and researchers who can show international recognition for outstanding achievements in a particular academic field. You must be coming to the United States to pursue tenure or tenure track teaching or research position at a U.S. university, college, or private entity. The EB-1B petition does not need a Permanent Labor Certification.

EB-1C Petitions for Multinational Managers or Executives

EB-1C petitions are specifically designed for individuals who qualify as multinational managers or executives. To be eligible, you must have been employed by the petitioning employer for at least one out of the last three years outside of the United States, or inside the U.S. with a non-immigrant visa since your last admission. It is important that the U.S. petitioner has been conducting business in the country for a minimum of one year, has a qualifying relationship with the entity where you worked outside the U.S., and intends to continue employing you as a manager or executive. Notably, the EB-1C petition does not require a Permanent Labor Certification.

The Green Card Process

With an EB-1 Petition approved, the foreign national can become a lawful permanent resident. If there is a visa immediately available and he or she is in the United States with a valid, non-immigrant status, he or she can apply for a green card (Form I-485) with the petition. This is called concurrent filing.

If the foreign national is outside the United States, he or she can apply for an immigrant visa abroad (DS 260). This is called Consular Process. The foreign national’s spouse and eligible children can also immigrate as lawful permanent residents.
