EB-2 Visa Attorneys

EB-2 Visa Eligibility

You may be eligible for an EB-2 visa if you hold an advanced degree or its equivalent, or are a foreign national who has exceptional ability. Your spouse and children under the age of 18 may be admitted to the United States. During the process where you and your spouse are applying for permanent resident status (status as a green card holder), your spouse is eligible to file for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).

In order to qualify under the EB-2 Visa advanced degree category you:
  • Must apply for a job that requires an advanced degree
  • Must possess an advanced degree (or possess a bachelor’s degree plus 5 years progressive work experience)
In order to qualify under the EB-2 Visa exceptional ability category you:

    • Membership in a professional association(s)
    • Recognition for your achievements and significant contributions to your industry or field by your peers, government entities, professional or business organizations
    • Other comparable evidence of eligibility is also acceptable.
In order to qualify for the national interest waiver you:
  • Must be alien requesting that the Labor Certification be waived because it is in the interest and would greatly benefit the U.S.
  • Must meet at least 3 of the criteria:
    • Official academic record showing that you have learning relating to your area of exceptional ability
