Permanent Work Visa Requirements in America

If your job brings you to the United States from another country, you will need to go through legal authorization in order to be allowed to remain here and continue working. To come into the U.S., you will need a visa, or green card. The type of visa you apply for depends on your reason for being in America. If you are hired by an American company, you will need one of several types of permanent employment visas, known as EB visas.

What exactly is an EB visa? According to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, five types of permanent employment visas are distributed to cover a number of different employment positions. These include the following:

  • EB-1 – This visa is reserved for people with exceptional skill and value in management, business, art, science, education, athletics, research and other such fields.
  • EB-2 – This visa includes job positions that need advanced degrees or outstanding skills in sciences, business or art.
  • EB-3 – Professionals, skilled laborers and others in similar positions would apply for this visa.
  • EB-4 – This applies to special positions like religious work and foreign service positions, as well as international executives who have retired.
  • EB-5 – Businesspeople investing $500,000 to $1 million or above in a new commercial business employing 10 or more Americans would apply for this visa.

It is important to note that each year, approximately 140,000 permanent employment visas are distributed. These visas are also available for spouses and minor children, so you may apply to have your family come to America with you if you are immigrating here to work.
