EB1 Green Cards for Sporting Professionals
Self Sponsored EB1 Green Cards for Sporting Professionals
If you’re an elite or leading athlete in your sport and would like to come to the US to live, train and compete, then you may be able to sponsor yourself for an EB1 Green Card.
The EB1 Green Card is only available to those who can prove that they have been successful at the national, international or world class level in their field.
So no matter what your sport, if you’re at the top of that field we’d love to help you go through the rigorous process to secure your green card.
Please review the selection process below and when you’ve completed that please give us a call as soon as you can. All consultations are free.
EB1 Green Card
US Immigration has, under 8 C.F.R. 204.5(h) (3), put together a checklist of qualities that you must be able to satisfy in order to be considered eligible for the EB1 Green Card. From the list below you only have to find three categories where you feel you can either satisfy right now or you could satisfy with some support.
Take the EB1 Green Card Challenge
Ok – go ahead. If you feel you can satisfy any three from the list below, then call us right away as we’ll talk it over with you for free and if we’re good to go, we’ll give you the green light. If all goes well we can secure you a green card in under six months and if you’re already in the US under any visa we can secure you an interim work permit in about three months.
Remember, this is a great opportunity because you can do this completely on your own without a US employer needing to get involved – this will be your green card, for life.
