EB1 Green Card
Petitioner is a university that sought to employ the beneficiary permanently in the United States as an Assistant Professor of Clinical Biostatistics. In this respect, the university sought to classify the beneficiary as an outstanding researcher pursuant to section 203(b)(1)(B) of the INA. USCIS initially denied the petition on the grounds that the beneficiary had not achieved the outstanding level of achievement required for being classified as an outstanding researcher.
I have 6 years experience with the same company with 4 years experience in US itself. I am on L1A visa and I have only a 4 year Bachelor Computer Science engineering degree. What GC category will I fall under?
L-1A holders should try under EB1. You could be done in a year.
I currently have a L1-B visa and I'd like to know if the company where I work(a Brazilian company where I did work for 2 years, one of them in a managerial position before coming to the U.S in 2009) could apply to change my status from L1-B to L1-A at the same time as filing my GC application. The company is a giant in Brazil with 600 employees but we are still starting the operations in the U.S and I'm the only employee here.
Smaller companies can have a tough time getting an L-1A.
I have been with the same company for 4 years as a manager (overall industry experience 11 years today). I joined the company in India, stayed there for 1.5 years, moved to US 2.5 years back. I read that "1 year employment outside the USA should be in the 3 years preceding the petition". All of my 12 months does not fall into the last 3 years. What are my chances of qualifying for EB-1?
There may be an exemption if you continued working with a related company ever since you came to USA.
