What is an EB-2(C) Visa?

EB-2(C) Visas provide an alternative path to an EB-2 Visa for an individual who is requesting that the usual Labor Certification and job offer requirements be waived because it is in the interest of the United States. This generally means that EB-2(C) Applicants must demonstrate that they have an exceptional ability or talent in certain fields that will make them an asset to the United States. While EB-2(C)Visas can be preferable to other employment-based green card because they do not require a labor certification or a job offer, they tend to be complex and involve extensive scrutiny in the approval process.

The required qualifications are as follows:

EB-2(C) Applicants must demonstrate that they meet at least three of the following seven criteria:

  1. Proof of an academic qualification in your field of exceptional ability 

  2. Proof that you have at least 10 years of experience working full time in your field 

  3. A professional license, if needed for your profession 

  4. Proof that you earn a salary appropriate to your level of exceptional ability 

  5. Membership of professional associations in your field 

  6. Proof that your contributions to your field have been recognized by your peers, such as prizes and awards 

  7. Some other proof of your exceptional ability is sometimes accepted, please contact us if you’re not sure if the evidence you have is suitable
