What You Need to Know About Immigration Visas in the United States
Every year the United States government makes about 140,000 immigration visas for aliens who relocate to the United States as employees. To qualify for an employment-based visa in the U.S., an individual must possess the right skills, work experience, and education. An individual may gain permanent residency in the United States with an employment visa. There are different types of employment-based immigrant visas, including:

Immigration Visas

EB1 Visa: Extraordinary Ability Visa Category

This visa category is for individuals who possess extraordinary science, arts education, business, or sports abilities. The EB1 visa is divided into three subsets:

  • EB-1A. Aliens with extraordinary abilities
  • EB-1B. Outstanding researchers and professors
  • EB-1C. Multinational business executives or managers

Applicants in this category can petition for an employment visa by themselves, and if their petition is approved, they will receive a green card. The applicant's employer can also file for the petition and show proof of the job offer. The application process involves filing the 1-140 form with the USCIS and showing documentation proof based on the category you are applying in.

EB2 Visa:Advanced Degree, Masters, or 
Higher Education Visa Category

The INA section 203(b)(2) outlines this employment-based visa application method. You may qualify for this employment-based visa if:

  • You hold an advanced degree or its foreign equivalent  
  • Have exceptional abilities who have demonstrated achievements in arts, business or sciences
  • Can obtain a national interest waiver that shows that working in the United States will benefit the country

Application for the EB2 visa involves multiple steps that require the employer and the alien. The application involves three significant parts, which include:

  • Getting a labor certificate
  • Filling a petition
  • Green card interview with the USCIS or the U.S. consulate

Visa for Fiancée

A fiancé visa or the K-1 is a visa given to a fiancé of an American citizen. This allows the individual to travel to the United States and marry a U.S. citizen within 90 days. Once married, the spouse is eligible to remain in the country and file for permanent residency. To be eligible to petition the U.S. government for your fiancé visa, you must fulfill the following requirement:

  • Be a U.S. Citizen
  • Both be single, divorced, or widowed
  • Have no significant criminal background
  • Having met your fiancé, in-person video communication will not be considered
  • Be financially capable of supporting your Fiancé

After the visa is approved, your fiancé is free to travel to the U.S. However, they must travel within six months, or the visa will become invalid.
