About EB1 Visa
The term “EB” means “employment-based”, it refers to employment-based immigration application to secure Green Card through acquiring the right to work in the US.
What is EB-1?
EB-1 is the first category of the employment-based immigration applications in the US, commonly known as the “extraordinary ability” visa. The US government hopes to introduce more immigrants with outstanding talent through the EB-1 program; therefore, the EB-1 applicants are also expected to continue their specialization in the respective industries in the future.<br>
EB-1 is divided into three categories:
EB-1A (extraordinary ability)
Under this category, you must be able to demonstrate extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics through sustained national or international acclaim.
EB-1B (Outstanding professors and researchers)
American scientific research institutions such as universities, higher academic institutions, or private research laboratories, etc. (applicant) can introduce outstanding researchers and professors into the US by applying for EB-1B, who shall demonstrate international recognition for their outstanding achievements in a particular academic field and are being hired to hold a tenured post.
EB-1C (Multinational managers/executives)
This is an immigration application designed for managers and executives working in multinational companies, and generally considered as a continuation of the L-1 Visa. The L-1 beneficiary can apply for EB-1C for a Green Card after one year of the business’s successful operation in the US. The requisites of the EB-1C are similar to those of the L-1, wherein the beneficiaries are also managers/executives of a multinational company with the management ability to operate the company. The EB-1C beneficiary should have worked for a qualified multinational company in the US for at least one year, and they are prohibited to come to the US for the purpose of setting up new enterprises. Should you plan to come to the US to set up a business and apply for immigration, we suggest that you apply for the L-1 Visa first and adjust to EB-1C after one year.
Let’s discuss various specific requirements and precautions for employment-based immigration:
Application requirements for EB-1A
The EB-1A Visa does not require the applicant to have offer of employment or labor certification in the US; therefore, the applicant can self-petition and does not need to seek an employer to apply on their behalf. EB-1 has seemingly more relaxed requisites compared to other employment-based immigration visas but requires sufficient evidence to prove the extraordinary ability of the applicant.
Such evidence could be that of a one-time achievement of international acclaim (i.e. Olympics, World Championships, Oscar, etc.), as well as proof that you will continue to specialize in the area of your expertise.

I have discontinued writing reviews on Yelp until now. The services I received from Seth Mitchell and his assistants were as successful as it gets. Their group was always kind, courteous, patient and diligent. This type of professionalism is rare in this day and age.
