EB2 Employment-Based Green Card

EB2 Employment-Based Green Card

The EB-2 visa is the second preference of the EB visa categories (EB-1 to EB-5). EB-2 visas grant permanent residency, meaning you will receive a Green Card and be able to stay in the United States indefinitely under that green card status. You will also qualify for U.S. Citizenship after 5 years of continuous residence as a green card holder.

There are three different subcategories of the EB-2 visas: EB2A, EB2B, and EB2C.

The EB2C category, also known as the EB-2 NIW or National Interest Waiver, is one of the few visa categories that allows the foreign national to “self-petition”. This means that the foreign national’s presence in the United States is considered in the “national interest”, and as a result, they are not required to be sponsored by a specific employer.

EB-2A and EB-2B visa applicants, however, must be sponsored by an employer. EB2A visas are for immigrants that hold an advanced degree and whose job requires that advanced degree, and EB2B vias are for individuals of exceptional ability, meaning that they have a “degree of expertise significantly above that ordinarily encountered in the sciences, arts, or business.” EB-2A and EB-2B visa applicants must also go through the Labor Certification Process,
