EB-1 Visa Overview
The EB-1 visa allows certain multinational executives and managers and people with extraordinary ability in science, art, education, business, or sports to gain legal permanent residence in the United States. The best way for many immigrant workers to gain lawful permanent residence in the U.S. may be the EB1-C employment based immigrant visas for multinational managers and executives. The EB1-C immigrant visa process is relatively quick compared to other visas. It also allows entry of businessmen with no significant investment requirements.
EB-1 Visa Challenges
Proving Managerial Capacity
Employers must prove that the employee functions in an executive or managerial capacity.
Articulating Functional Management
In Functional Manager cases, the concept of “functional management” is often opaque and up to the subjective judgement of the USCIS officer.
Financing Managerial Role
Small-scale employers often have difficulty establishing that the organizational needs require, and that they can financially support, an executive or manager.
