EB-1B: Outstanding Researchers/Outstanding Professors
The EB-1B Visa classification applies to individuals who are internationally recognized as exceptional in a particular scientific or scholarly field. EB-1B visas are employer-sponsored visas; in other words, an employer must petition on behalf of an alien. The Employer must demonstrate that the individual has secured a permanent job offer with the employer and that the alien will continue his or her demonstrably “outstanding” abilities as a researcher or professor in that capacity. Individuals living within the United States or outside of the United States may apply for EB-1B Visas.
