The EB-1 visa is an employment-based visa designed for professionals who excel in their fields, whether in sports, sciences, arts, or business. This visa grants permanent residency – a Green Card – to those who have reached the highest level in their careers.

Known as the visa for “individuals with extraordinary abilities,” the EB-1 is often awarded to those who have received prestigious international awards such as the Oscars, Pulitzer Prize, Nobel Prize, Olympic medals, and others.

While it may seem extremely difficult to obtain, the EB-1 visa is accessible to professionals who stand out in their fields, provided they can document their recognition and significance.

The United States immigration system has established 10 specific criteria for this visa; applicants must meet and provide evidence for at least 3 of these criteria to be eligible.

Requirements

  • Receipt of nationally or internationally recognized awards;
  • Membership in associations that demand excellence from their members;
  • Published material in major media outlets;
  • Significant academic or artistic contributions;
  • Scientific articles in professional journals;
  • Exhibitions and artistic shows;
  • Leadership roles in organizations with outstanding reputations;
  • High salary or remuneration compared to others in the field;
  • Participation as a judge evaluating the work of others;
  • Commercial success in the performing arts.

Advantages of the EB-1 Visa:

Autonomy to self-petition.

Fewer bureaucratic hurdles in the petition process.

Immigration benefits extend to the applicant’s family (spouse and unmarried children under 21).

The EB-1 visa aims to attract professionals to the United States who stand out as part of a small elite in their respective fields, recognized for their high level of excellence.
