Do you want to set up a new branch of your company in the United States? Are you interested in attending a conference in your industry? Do you possess a unique talent? Do you hold patents? You may qualify for an employment-based — EB — visa for one of these reasons and more. EB visas fall under the category of permanent workers. Here are a few classifications of visas we can assist you with:

  • First Preference EB-1: For people with standout talents in education, business, arts, athletics or science, as well as multinational managers, professors and researchers
  • Second Preference EB-2: For workers with advanced degrees or exceptional business, science or art skill
  • Third Preference EB-3: For skilled workers or professionals
  • Fourth Preference EB-4: For “special immigrants,” such as U.S. Foreign Service post employees, some religious workers, people who worked for international groups and other special cases
  • Fifth Preference EB-5: For business investors who put up a certain amount of money in a new venture that will employ at least 10 Americans

Some visa categories will require an employer to sponsor you. Others need approval from the Department of Labor, which certifies your employment situation will not impact other American workers adversely.  Yet others allow you to petition for yourself.

We have worked with citizens from abroad to help them through the complicated maze of the U.S. employment-based immigration process. Though we are located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we can help you no matter where you are.
