EB-2 Visa Lawyers in Cincinnati
Serving Professionals in Warren County, Butler County, & Beyond
The EB-2 category provides immigrant visas (green cards) for qualified professional workers. Typically, they must have an advanced degree, meaning a US degree or a foreign degree equivalent to a US degree above that of a baccalaureate. A United States baccalaureate degree or a foreign equivalent degree followed by at least five years of progressive experience in this specialty shall be considered the equivalent to a master’s degree. If a doctoral degree is customarily required by the specialty, the alien must have a United States doctorate degree or a foreign equivalent degree.
If the applicant does not have the above degree(s), they must possess exceptional ability in the sciences, arts, or business. According to USCIS, this refers to a degree of expertise significantly above what is ordinarily encountered in the sciences, arts, or business. Exceptional ability is a very high standard, but it is less than that of ‘extraordinary ability’ found in the ‘priority worker’ category (EB-1).
Unlike the EB-1 category, the EB-2 category requires an employer and a labor certification. There is, however, an exception to this rule. If the alien’s job is deemed to be “in the national interest” of the United States, they may qualify for a waiver of the labor certification requirement. Obtaining this waiver greatly reduces the processing time.
