Employment-Based Immigration Matters

A Silver Spring Employment Immigration Lawyer Committed to Your Success

About 140,000 employment-based visas are obtained annually under U.S. immigration law. These visas fall into categories based on preference for qualified candidates. An employment-based visa can only be obtained through the sponsorship of your proposed employer who must first get a labor certification from the Department of Labor.

If you are a U.S. employer or an individual who is seeking an employment-based Green Card, you will need the experienced assistance of an immigration attorney. At the Law Office of Eshigo P. Okasili, LLC we have been helping foreign nationals enter, live, and work in the U.S. for many years. Attorney Eshigo Okasili is a former immigrant who has extensive experience in this field of law, bringing an abundance of legal and personal knowledge to every client.

Learn more about how we can help you with the employment-based immigration process by contacting our Silver Spring immigration lawyer at (301) 760-2066.

Employment-Based Immigration

Employment-based visas are divided into five categories according to preference.

The categories include:

  • Individuals with extraordinary ability, outstanding professors and researchers, and multinational executives.
  • Individuals with advanced degrees or who have exceptional ability.
  • Skilled and unskilled workers and professionals.
  • Special immigrants, such as broadcasters, religious ministers, translators, and others.
  • Immigrant investors.

Each category has certain requirements that must be fulfilled. Petitions must be filed with the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services). Required documentation includes such things as passports, photographs, proof of financial support, completed medical exam forms, and other civil documents. You will also be required to attend an interview at a U.S. embassy or consulate.
