Eligibility and Processes
As an engineer seeking a Green Card, your case will most likely fall under the EB-2 or EB-3 categories, which are specifically tailored for professionals with exceptional abilities or skilled workers, respectively.
The EB-3B visa is geared towards professionals with a U.S. baccalaureate degree or its foreign equivalent. To qualify, you must demonstrate that your educational background meets the highest requirements of the job. Additionally, the job you are being recruited for must not have suitable U.S. candidates available. An immigration lawyer can help you meet USCIS criteria and navigate labor certifications.
Key points for EB-3B visa:
- Requires employer sponsorship and labor certification.
- For professionals with a U.S. bachelor’s degree OR equivalent.
Unlike EB-3B, EB-2 NIW visa category is for professionals with exceptional skills and experience. While the EB-3B focuses more on the educational qualifications, the EB-2 NIW gives weightage to the applicant’s professional achievements and experience. A significant advantage is that no employer sponsorship is required.
Key points for EB-2 NIW visa:
- Allows self-petitioning and bypassing labor certification.
- For professionals with exceptional skills.
Advantageous for those contributing to
- U.S. national interests.
- Does not require employer sponsorship.
The choice between the two depends on your career achievements and long-term goals.
