Priority workers are further divided into three categories. No Labor certification is required for any of the 3 sub-categories. There usually is no backlog of visa numbers for these categories. 28.6% of worldwide visas plus unused EB4s (Special Immigrant) and EB5s (Investors) visas are available for this category.

Basically, this sub-category requires that you be famous in your field. Another provision is that your presence in the United States will significantly benefit America. However, you must still be at the top of your field and you cannot be retired when you apply. This is the only category where a job offer is not needed so long as you will continue to work in your field after you enter the United States.


Through extensive documentation, Hart Immigration will show that you have sustained national or international acclaim and that your achievements have been recognized in the field.


Outstanding University Professors or Researchers.

Some executives and managers of foreign companies who are transferred to the U.S. may qualify. A multinational manager or executive is eligible for priority worker status if he or she has been employed outside the U.S. for one out of the past three years by a firm or corporation and seeks to enter the U.S. to continue a similar position with an American subsidiary, affiliate or branch of the same employer.


The U.S. employer/petitioner must have been in business for at least one year, and must be a subsidiary, affiliate, branch or the same employer as the original employer abroad.
