Eligibility Based on Extraordinary Ability

If you stand out in your field, you may be able to enter the United States with an EB-1 green card based on extraordinary ability.

According to United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) mandates, you need to be able to prove you are “extraordinary” in the fields of:

  • Science
  • Art
  • Education
  • Business
  • Or athletics

To prove that you are extraordinary, you need to fulfill at least 3 of 10 possible requirements set by the USCIS.

The 10 possible prerequisites you can meet are providing evidence of:

  1. National or international awards for excellence
  2. Membership to prestigious and related associations
  3. Major publications discussing your role in your field
  4. An association asking you to judge the work of others in your field
  5. Significant contributions you have made to your field
  6. Published articles you wrote in regards to your field
  7. Related work you created being displayed to the public
  8. Your role leading or greatly supporting a relevant organization

What Are the Eligibility Requirements for an Outstanding Professor or Researcher?

To apply for an EB-1 green card as an outstanding professor and researcher, you must show proof that you are internationally recognized for your achievements within your field of study.

You must also have three years of experience in your field, either in academia or research. Furthermore, residency in the United States is for the sole purpose of earning tenure, or a similar position, at your university.

In fact, before an Eb-1 green card of this nature can be approved, you will need to secure and provide an offer of employment from an employer in the United States.

To be seen as an outstanding researcher by the USCIS, you must submit at least two of the six following forms of documentation:

  • Receipt of a significant award based on outstanding achievements
  • Membership records in an association that values relevant outstanding work
  • Publications from other professionals about your work.
  • Participation as a judge or panelist to review the work of others in the same or similar fields
  • Original scholarly or scientific research contributions
  • Your own relevant publications, articles, or reports
