Employment-Based Immigration: An Overview

Former INS Attorney Carl Shusterman (1976–82) discusses how you can obtain a green card through employment in the US. Schedule a legal consultation (by Skype, telephone or in person) at http://shusterman.com/schedule-immigration-consultation.html

Persons may qualify for employment-based green cards in one of the following 5 preference categories:

EB-1 — Priority Workers This category consists of persons of extraordinary ability, outstanding professors and researchers and multinational managers and executives

EB-2 Persons of Exceptional Ability or Advanced Degrees

EB-3 Professionals, Skilled and Unskilled Workers

EB-4 Special Immigrants including Religious Workers

EB-5 Investors

Persons may speed up the processing of their green cards by a variety of means: Converting between categories while retaining the priority date of the original petition, alternative changeability, Schedule A occupations, using the Child Status Protection Act (CSPA), etc.
