EB1A, EB 1-1, EB1 – What is the Difference?
As seasoned EB1 Green Card Attorney’s we have heard almost every question and concern regarding the EB1 Visa. The EB1 Visa is referred to many different ways which often raises many questions among our current and prospective clients. Miceala, during her research phase of obtaining the EB-1A, noticed that the visa/green card process is also referred to as the EB1 Visa, the EB11 Visa, and the EB 1-1. One of the most EB-1A Frequently Asked Questions that Miceala also had was “What are the EB1A Requirements, and how do they differ from the EB 1-1Visa.
The EB1A Requirements and the EB 1-1 are essentially the same, as they both require the applicant to be among “Individuals with Extraordinary Abilities.” As EB1 Green Card Attorney’s who are aware of this confusion among our clients with regards to the actual name of the visa, we prefer to refer to the visa as the EB1 Visa.
When Miceala inquired about our firms services and more specifically the EB1A Requirements she referred to the EB-1A visa as the EB11 or EB 1-1 Visa. The confusion and multiple existence of visa terms lead unfortunately lead Miceala to believe that we were suggesting an entirely different visa for her. However, Miceala’s trust in her EB1 Green Card Attorney’s and the strength of petition itself lead to the success of her EB1 Visa, also known as the EB11 Visa.
While being well-informed of the EB1 Visa for Individuals with Extraordinary Abilities is essential to the success of your EB-1A petition, we do discourage doing extensive research and attempting to file this Petition on your on. We have a strong belief in this as many of the EB-1A Frequently Asked Questions that we receive result from the conflicting online statement made about the EB1 Visa for Individuals with Extraordinary Abilities.
