Employment Based Immigrant Visas

Receiving permanent residency in the US is made possible for foreign workers through the use of employment based (EB) immigrant visas. There are several types of EB visas, some of which include: a EB-1 for people with exceptional capabilities, managers or executive from different countries, outstanding researchers or professor; b) EB-2 for immigrant workers who are advanced degree holders or specializations and people who immigration is in line with the US national interest; c) EB-3 for specialists with undergraduate degrees or equal work experience; and d) EB-4 visas for specialty foreign workers and religious workers and EB-5 visas for foreign investors include employment based preference categories.

EB-5 Program Update:

The EB-5 Program has lapsed. The US Congress is discussing the legislation that authorizes the program while USCIS reviews the regulations and policies for filing.

LCR expects the program to be reauthorized in December, and continues to work with international families that want to explore alternative residency options.
