The United States always looks to add value to the country with every immigration application they consider. The EB-2 visa is no exception. But a lot of professionals don’t even know about the EB-2 visa or its promising benefits. That’s why we’re dedicated to spreading the word about the visa that favors professionals and that industry experts should know more about. 

Professionals with a bachelor’s degree and at least 5 years of work experience in their field can get a Green Card through the EB-2 visa. Often times, EB-2 applicants are engineers, software developers, health-care professionals, researchers, architects and ambitious entrepreneurs doing something admirable in their industry. One thing all EB-2 applicants have in common is their desire to bring their expertise to the U.S. and become a permanent resident.

Amazing, right? This visa opens a lot of doors for those who are looking for a way to use their profession to live, work and invest in the U.S. The best part is there is no need for a job offer from a U.S. company. That means EB-2 candidates can petition for themselves without needing a sponsor. The EB-2 visa is extremely beneficial while providing little challenges for those who qualify.

The EB-2 visa is also a relatively quick process because you don’t have to wait to file your adjustment of status to request your Green Card – it can be filed immediately with your initial EB-2 petition. This minimizes any delay in getting permission to live, work and travel to and from the U.S. Do you see what I mean? This visa is such a great option for those who meet the requirements.

Speaking of requirements, the key is to show that you have significant accomplishments in your field. Each application will have to prove that if you are admitted as a Green Card holder, your work in your profession will provide an added value to the entire nation. Of course, the EB-2 application is document intensive because you have to support your ability to have a meaningful impact on the U.S. Without showing that your work intrinsically benefits the greater American good, your application will likely be denied.

That’s why having a conversation with a business immigration attorney is crucial. Your attorney will not only help you see if you qualify for the EB-2 but will also prepare the strongest petition possible to secure your Green Card through the EB-2 visa. Let’s get you scheduled to talk to our business immigration experts to see if you can get an EB-2 Green Card through your diploma and work experience! see more.
