Eligibility Requirements for an EB-2(B) Visa

In order to be eligible for an EB-2 visa under the subcategory of "exceptional ability," you must have a current job offer from a U.S. employer. Applicants may also qualify for a national interest waiver, which does not require them to have a current job offer. It can be difficult to determine if you qualify for this type of visa, thus, we recommend that you speak to our immigration attorney in San Francisco when considering to apply.

Extraordinary Ability Immigration

An exceptional ability visa is often confused with extraordinary ability immigration. Individuals who qualify for immigration under this category include those who have garnered national or international acclaim for their ability. This can include professionals in the sciences, the arts, business, athletics, or education. Individuals seeking entry into the United States under this category must file Form I-140, Immigrant Petition.

Some examples of supporting evidence for an extraordinary ability include:

  • National or international awards for their achievements
  • Published material
  • Having been asked to be a judge on a panel discussing topics from a related field
  • Evidence of significant contributions made within the field

To learn if you qualify for immigration as an individual with an extraordinary ability, please contact our San Francisco immigration attorney at (415) 761-2732.
