I. Introduction

In your quest to pursue the American dream and secure permanent residency in the United States, the EB2 Visa may just be your golden ticket. This guide will walk you through the intricate process of obtaining an EB2 Visa, highlighting the key requirements and crucial steps involved. So, let's embark on this exciting journey towards U.S. residency.

II. The EB2 Visa Requirements

Educational Qualifications: The EB2 Visa is divided into two subcategories, one for individuals with advanced degrees and the other for those with exceptional abilities in their respective fields. To qualify under the advanced degree category, you must possess a master's degree or higher, while the exceptional ability category requires you to demonstrate outstanding expertise in your field.

Exceptional Ability: This category is for individuals who have risen to the top of their field and can prove their exceptional abilities through various achievements, awards, and recognition.

National Interest Waiver: If your work is deemed to be in the national interest of the United States, you may be eligible for a National Interest Waiver, which can exempt you from the labor certification process.

III. Preparing Your EB2 Visa Application

To successfully apply for the EB2 Visa, meticulous preparation is essential:

Gathering Documentation: This involves collecting the necessary documents to support your petition, including educational certificates, reference letters, and evidence of exceptional ability.

Form I-140 Petition: You'll need to file Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker, with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This form is a crucial part of your EB2 Visa application.

Labor Certification (PERM): In some cases, you may require a labor certification, also known as a PERM (Program Electronic Review Management), which involves a process to ensure that hiring a foreign worker will not negatively impact U.S. workers.
