What is employment-based immigration?

Temporary employment-based visa classifications are a great way to fill specific job needs in the United States. Unfortunately, most temporary workers have limited ability to change employers. They must leave if their status expires or when it is terminated, but this type of immigration offers many benefits for both employer and employee.

Employment-based immigration allows you to obtain a visa classification and is permitted to work for the employer that hires you. That’s because the employer petitions on your behalf to hire foreign nationals for specific jobs for a limited period of time.

Each year, there are 140,000 green cards available for employment-based immigrants within five categories. The five categories, or “preferences”, are a part of the Immigration Act of 1990.

Categories of Foreign Nationals

When it comes time to apply for your employment-based immigration visa, you’ll need to understand which category you fall under. All foreign nationals fall under one of these four categories:

Priority Workers and Persons of Extraordinary Abilities

First Preference (EB-1) category. This category includes individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to the arts, sciences, and education. It also features outstanding professors or researchers and multinational managers/executives operating internationally.

Professionals with Advanced Degrees or Persons with Exceptional Ability

Second Preference (EB-2) category. This is a particular category for highly educated individuals who have succeeded in their respective fields. This group includes professionals with advanced degrees, artists, and scientists alike.

Skilled Workers, Professionals, and Other Workers

The Third Preference (EB-3) category. This “skilled worker” category includes those with jobs requiring at least two years of training or experience. This can be either temporary or seasonal work; professionals with bachelor’s degrees will also fall into this category if they hold positions requiring very specific skill sets, such as doctors and lawyers.

Special Immigrants

The Fourth Preference (EB-4) category. This category is comprised of ministers and non-ministers in religious vocations and occupations who do religious work in a full-time compensated position.

Immigrant Investors

The Fifth Preference (E5) category. Immigrant Investor visas are for foreign investors in new job creating commercial enterprises within the United States.
