Specialists in EB1 Green Cards for Executives and Managers

EB1 Qualification Criteria

EB-1 Green Card for Executives and Managers: Many business executives and managers have no idea that they could be just a few months away from qualifying for a green card to live in the US without having to find even a US sponsor.

We specialize in EB-1 green cards for executives and managers who are operating at a very high level. Maybe you earn more than $120,000 USD, maybe you are sometimes quoted in the press, perhaps you’ve led a team to win industry awards.

We work with people from all over the world, many in IT and other fields where professionals are not often in the limelight. If you are a high flyer and would like to land in the US, give us a call today to see if we can make that happen for you. Check out our videos and testimonials from other professionals who may be just like you. We look forward to hearing from you who are now living the American Dream.

I actually love working on EB-1 green card visa cases, what I love about these applications is the fact that initially, the client does not even recognize themselves as being that extraordinary. I remember a case I worked on for a client called Samantha she was a designer at a good company and still in her 20s.

Samantha had a BA degree education and about 7 years of progressive experience in knitwear designs.  In fact, she was currently in the US on an H-1B visa and had approached her company about a green card but was rejected. Samantha then came to me to see if there was anything I could do.  We then discussed the possibility of the EB-1 and the rest, as they say, is history.

Green Card EB1 Visa Requirements – EB1 w/o PHD or Master’s Degree

The EB1 green card visa is about talent, not academic qualifications. In fact, you do not need to have a degree at all. If you have excelled in your career to be recognized as a leader in your area of expertise then you may well qualify for an EB 1c green card visa, or at the very least, it’s certainly worth getting in touch so that we can make a detailed assessment.

EB1 greencard visa aliens do not need proof of a sponsor, they can sponsor themselves. The EB-1 green card visa works on the principle of Extraordinary Ability but has it’s own slightly different checklist. For this checklist, you need to be able to satisfy unequivocally at least three from the list below.

Below is the official checklist we have to work towards.  Your job is to study the list very carefully putting all modesty aside and then if you can find three or more areas on that list where you think with a bit of effort you could produce evidence that might satisfy the criteria then you may have a chance to qualify for the EB1 green card visa.

Qualifying for an EB-1 green card visa is an absolutely stunning immigration achievement.  It means that from where you are today you could be approved for a green card permanent resident in the shortest possible time. If having studied this list you’re somewhat unsure, please get in touch detailing what categories you’re sure about and what categories you’re not sure on.

Please note that I’ve created “more info” sections after each category, these are in fact additional web pages devoted to further explaining that category in layman’s terms.

EB-1 Green card Visa Requirements Check List:

Evidence of Eligibility: 8 C.F.R. 204.5(h) (3)
