The EB1-2 visa (Green Card) is the academic equivalent of the EB1-1.
It is a permanent residency US visa (Green Card) that enables the most outstanding professors or researchers in their fields to live and work permanently in the United States.
The EB-1-2 is one of the more sought after green cards because it has current priority dates, meaning there can be far less waiting time compared to other categories.
Additionally there is no requirement to go through the PERM process. (The PERM process is where the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) must carry out research to prove there are no qualified U.S. workers for the position in question.
Because of its desirability, EB1-2 sets a high bar for qualification, and applications are carefully scrutinized. You must select a very experienced immigration attorney before considering an EB1-1 or EB1-2 application.
