I-140 Special Categories

The I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker is used by an employer wishing to sponsor (or petition) for a foreign national to work in the United States on a permanent basis. Some highly qualified alien workers can self-petition I-140. The job must require an advanced degree and you must possess such a degree or its equivalent (a baccalaureate degree plus 5 years progressive work experience in the field). You may be eligible for an employment-based, second preference visa if you are a member of the professions holding an advanced degree or its equivalent, or a foreign national who has exceptional ability. The following Margaret W. Wong and Associates client success stories are a few examples of those who obtained a 1-140 Petition for Alien Relative. Please Contact us today to start your I-140.
