What is Employment Based Immigration?

Employment-based immigration can be broadly divided into two labels: immigration visas, which are permanent, and nonimmigrant visas, which are temporary. Our attorneys can assist employers intending to bring workers permanent labor certification (PERM) in the United States. We also support nonimmigrant visas for a wide range of individuals, including foreign investors and health care providers.

EB Visas

EB visas typically are available for those who demonstrate extraordinary ability in their field or who offer a significant benefit to the industries in which they contribute. 

This may apply to high-level executives, scientists, professors and others who make significant contributions to their field or to the national interest. Visas in this category include:

  • EB-11: Immigrants of extraordinary ability
  • EB-12: Outstanding professors and researchers
  • EB-13: Multinational executives and managers
  • EB-2: National interest waiver
