About EB-2 Visas
San Francisco Lawyer Guiding Clients in California
The United States is always looking for bright minds to bring into the country. An EB-2 visa provides a path for such individuals to enter the United States in hopes that they may benefit our economy, culture, and education.
EB-2 visas are divided into two subcategories: Individuals with advanced degrees and persons with exceptional ability. For individuals seeking entry into the United States as an academic professional, our San Francisco attorney at The Law Office of Zhang can provide you with the effective legal counsel you need.

What Are the Eligibility Requirements?
In order to qualify for an EB-2 visa as an advanced degree professional, the applicant must have earned a degree such as a Juris Doctor, Ph.D., master's, or M.D. One exception to this is an individual with a B.A. or B.S. who has at least five years of experience in the related field. This additional experience qualifies the applicant as an advanced degree professional.
Required Labor Certification
Employers seeking to sponsor a worker must apply for labor certification. The U.S. Department of Labor is in charge of reviewing the submitted application to determine if the employer has attempted to adequately recruit qualified workers within the United States before seeking out the services of a foreign worker.
Some employers may be able to bypass this certification with a national interest waiver. If you are unsure whether you meet the requirements for an EB-2 visa, allow our legal team to assist you.
