US Work and Immigration Options for Foreign Professionals
A discussion with two members of our community
I had to share this, an email from Diane, a member of our team yesterday:
I am reporting here comments from and my responses to a member of our community, "Julissa," regarding whether or how she could apply for a green card herself if she has a Master's degree. Do note, if a set of new immigration laws gets passed, all this could change.
This week, we have received an Oustanding Researcher approval in one day. I hope and wish we could see more of this lacrity in USCIS adjudications. Details of the case are here:
This morning, I was working on explaining to a client (whom I respect greatly), one of the foremost musicians from India, how EB1 (Extraordinary Ability) category applies to musicians and performers. As I was sending him the basic information on EB1 category, I thought I will share the general criteria with all of you. This information is for EA, generally and applies to all fields - not just music. See attached.
Regards to all. Rajiv.
