What is an EB-2(B) Visa?

EB-2(B) Visas are for individuals who can prove that they possess “exceptional ability” in the areas of arts or sciences, business, medicine, etc. The term “exceptional ability” is defined as “significantly above that normally encountered.”

Required Qualifications

  • The Employer must obtain a Labor Certification, through which the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) requires to prove that there are no qualified legal U.S.-based workers for the position in question.

  • EB-2(B) Visa applicants must prove that they have a confirmed job offer from a United States company. The job offered must be in line with the applicant’s level of exceptional ability.

  • EB-2(B) Visa applicants must prove that they meet at least three of seven criteria set by USCIS. The criteria include: 

    • ​Official academic record showing that you have a degree, diploma, certificate, or similar award from a college, university, school, or other institution of learning relating to your area of exceptional ability

    • Letters documenting at least 10 years of full-time experience in your occupation

    • A license to practice your profession or certification for your profession or occupation

    • Evidence that you have commanded a salary or other remuneration for services that demonstrates your exceptional ability

    • Membership in a professional association(s)

    • Recognition for your achievements and significant contributions to your industry or field by your peers, government entities, professional or business organizations

    • Other comparable evidence of eligibility is also acceptable
