Outstanding Researcher, Professor
EB1 – Outstanding Researcher – Seed Technology/Plant Science
I'm a researcher at a university and I will probably try to apply for EB1, Outstanding Researcher. I'm currently on an H-1 (since Oct. 2007). Are there certain stages in the process in which I won't be able to travel outside the US?
I cannot think of any stage at which you cannot travel. Good luck!
I have my EB2 approved by the USCIS, do I still get the chance to be denied by the US embassy for the consular interview?
It is unlikely, but possible.
