Seeking Employment-Based Immigration?

Experienced Daytona Beach Immigration Attorneys

Because an employer typically is given the task of filing a permanent worker visa on behalf of their desired employee, the government has put together categories called preference classifications. In order to be allowed into the United States as an immigrant on an employment-based visa, you must fall into one of these categories, based on your education, skills, or experience. Once you are found eligible, with the help of an experienced Dayton Beach immigration lawyer, your employer can help you gain access to the U.S.

The Different Categories of Visa Based Workers

There are a few different categories for permanent visa workers, which include:

  • First Preference EB-1: This classification is intended for people who have proven exceptional abilities or accomplishments in the following fields: education, business, arts, and science. This is also for professors and researchers in these subjects.
  • Second Preference EB-2: This classification is intended for people who have earned advanced degrees in arts, sciences, or business, and have proven their exceptional abilities.
  • Third Preference EB-3: This classification is intended for skilled workers and professionals who have earned their baccalaureate degree (or similar work experience or a foreign equivalent).
  • Fourth Preference EB-4: This classification is intended for people who have been categorized as "special immigrants," which includes members of the media, press, religious workers, and retired organizational employees.
  • Fifth Preference EB-5: This classification is intended for people who are affluent and high-profile investors. To fall under this category, the person must be intending to invest $500,000 or $1 million in a new endeavor under very specific criteria.
