Employment Based Preference Visa
» EB2 Visa
The EB2 Visa is the second employment based preference allowing aliens of exceptional ability gain permanent residence in America. To qualify as an alien of exceptional ability you must have an advanced degree or equivalent in a professional field, or exceptional ability in science, art or business.
For this category, a job offer for a position requiring at least an advanced degree and labor certification with the Department of Labor is required unless the USCIS waives the requirement in the national interest. In some cases, the applicant does not need an advanced degree for their job offer if they can show they hold a baccalaureate degree and have 5 years of progressive experience in their field.
In some instances, a person will be accepted as having an equivalent of an advanced degree if that person has at least 5 years progressive experience in the profession beyond the bachelor's degree. The applicant must also show they have ability beyond the basic qualification in their field to successfully obtain an EB2 Visa.
