    EB1 Green Card – The key to establishing yourself as an outstanding person is getting sufficient evidence from your peer group to comment on how your work has influenced your field of academia. Many people are published, but being published just to get a PHD is not sufficient we have to go further.

    EB1 Green Card – Outstanding Professor / Researcher Defined:

    US Immigration define an outstanding professor / researcher as someone who is recognized internationally.  US Immigration has come up with a checklist of categories whereby the alien can seek to measure themselves and demonstrate their status, however, satisfaction of the these categories by themselves is not proof of international recognition as many of the categories are ‘incident to status’: for example most academics must be published as part of their studies for example a PHD, therefore mere publication is not intrinsically enough. What US Immigration will look for is any evidence that the work has been recognized by the academic community as having been influential in some way, or well received, or some measure as to its impact above and beyond mere publication.

    EB1 Green Card – Outstanding Professor / Researcher Checklist:

    To qualify, the professor or researcher must be able to satisfy the following –

    (i) the alien is recognized interntaitonally as outstanding in a specific academic area,

    (ii) the alien has at least 3 years of experience in teach or researc in the academic area, and at least two to from the list of six specified types of documentation: –

    References
    – 8 C.F.R Section 204.5(i)(1), (3)
    – INA Section 203(b)(1)(B)
    – 8 U.S.C.Section 1153(b)(1)(B), as amended by IA90Section 121(a)

    A – Documentation of the alien’s receipt of major prizes or awards for outstanding achievement in the academic field; (national or international)

    B – Documentation of the alien’s membership in associations in the academic field, which require outstanding achievements of their members;

    C – Published material in professional publications written by others about the alien’s work in the academic field, Such material shall include the title, date and author of the material and any necessary translation;

    D – Evidence of the alien’s participation on a panel, or individually, as the judge of the work of others in the same, or allied field;

    E – Evidence of the alien’s original scientific or scholarly research contributions to the academic field; or

    F – Evidence of the alien’s authorship of scholarly books or articles (in scholarly journals with international circulation) in the academic field.

     Attorney – Client Relationship: If you have a shot at getting that perfect job offer that meets the above requirements then I would love the opportunity of working with you to develop and organize your evidence in the most effective way is the key.  You may already be working for a US institution already under a H-1B graduate visa or a J-1 visa and wondering what can you do next to stay, well the EB1 green card for Outstanding Professors and Researchers option maybe your ticket.  Please also study and read my guide on the EB1 Green Card Aliens of Extraordinary Ability and compare. Which classification do you think best suits your profile? If you not sure, call me to discuss.

    Are You Ready for Hard Work? Many people think when it comes to EB1 Green Card US immigration it’s just a question of completing a few forms and submitting a few bits of paper such as qualification certificates and that’s pretty much it. Nothing could be further from the truth. The reality is that making any high level immigration application is like going to a court of law and trying a case.  We have to submit comprehensive and overwhelming evidence to persuade an immigration adjudicator who probably sees tens of applications every day that your application is deserving where others that may have been received that day are were not.  Think about what’s at stake here – an EB1 green card that guarantees you the right to live in the US for life even if you quit your job. So the stakes are pretty high that why we work our clients to the bone to ensure that we only submit well documented cases of the highest quality. Sometimes you can get a highly qualified person who cannot commit the time to do their home work and their case ends up being weak.  In contrast you can get an eager well motivated client who is less qualified but because they put the work in their case came out looking more polished and accomplished and more likely to be successful. You cannot be too busy for this.

    Anyway, I hope I’ve inspired you to have a go for an EB1 green card and I can’t wait to get started on your case.
