Extraordinary Ability Individuals

Best results in building self-petitioned or employer-sponsored green card cases for priority workers.

Green cards may be obtained for individuals under the EB-1 Extraordinary Ability and the EB-2 National Interest Waiver (NIW) categories. Individuals who have risen to the very top of their field may prove eligibility for the EB-1 green card through evidence of sustained national or international acclaim. NIWs are granted to persons who have exceptional ability and whose employment in the U.S. would greatly benefit the nation. U.S. employers may also petition extraordinary ability individuals for an O-1 nonimmigrant working visa.

I can help with your priority worker immigration case under the extraordinary ability or National Interest Waiver (NIW) categories.
