EB-2 Visa Attorney in Dallas
Put 2 Decades of Experience in Your Corner
Individuals who can offer the United States their special skills, experience and knowledge through a higher education, or unique abilities that would benefit the nation’s well being may be able to enter the country using a second preference EB-2 visa.
A rigorous certification process has been created to ensure that qualified citizens are not losing gainful employment to underqualified foreign workers. If you need help understanding this process and correctly filing for your EB-2 visa, contact Akula & Associates, P.C. and ask our Dallas employment based EB-2 visas lawyers for assistance.
What Are the EB-2 Categories?
When filing for an EB-2 visa, you must first decide which of the three subcategories best fit your unique situation.
The subcategories are:
Advanced educational degree:
- A person who holds an advanced degree in their field, such as a doctorate or master’s degree, can apply for EB-2. The only documentation required in many advanced degree EB-2 visa filing is evidence of the degree. This can be as simple as providing a copy or the original degree obtained. In some cases, proof of an equivalent degree or a U.S. baccalaureate degree may also be acceptable.
- If you hold a degree related to science, art, or business that is above most others in your field, you can apply for an EB-2 visa based on your exceptional abilities. You must back your skills with proof of 10 years of full-time experience, an official practitioner’s license, a high salary for your work, professional recognitions, and membership to relevant associations.
National interest waiver:
- There are certain people with extraordinary skills or knowledge that would be of great gain to the United States as a whole should they find work within the country. If you can prove that your new job would be a positive national interest, the EB-2 requirements could potentially be waived.
You Can Bring Your Family With an EB-2 Visa
Another benefit of gaining a second preference EB-2 visa is the opportunity it grants your family members. Your spouse and children who are not legal adults – over the age of 21 by international standards – can gain entrance to the United States using an E-21 or E-22 immigrant status, so long as you have achieved an EB-2 visa.
If you choose to file for a green card, or permanent resident status, your spouse would also be able to file for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).
