Immigrant Visas For Permanent Employment

Many non-immigrant temporary workers become so essential to the daily operations of a business that they are asked to stay permanently. Regardless of whether the worker is an executive, manager, professional, skilled worker or non-skilled worker, a proven employee is a business asset to be protected and retained. It is not uncommon for companies to seek permanent residency on behalf of their foreign workers.

We work with the employer and the individual worker, to protect the business interests of the company while advising the employee on the best visa classification. We prepare and process alien labor certifications with the U.S. Department of Labor. We petition on behalf of the employer to obtain approval of an employment-based immigrant visa petition with the U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Service, and we prepare the Adjustment of Status or Consular Process applications. The following is a list of some employment-based immigrant visa classifications that lead to lawful permanent residence (green cards):

·  EB-1: Extraordinary Ability and Outstanding researcher

·  EB-2: Professionals holding advanced degrees or aliens of exceptional ability

·  EB-3: Skilled Workers, Professionals, other Workers

·  EB-4: Unskilled workers and others

·  EB-5: Investor Immigrant Visas
