The American government extends invitations to talented immigrants to boost the workforce. Some work-related immigration permits are advantageous to both the business and the employee. The EB-1 visa, like other work immigration visas, enables extraordinary people with outstanding skills and education to settle permanently in the United States of America. If a US-based employer offers you a job and you decide you want to move there permanently, you can apply for immigration using the employment-based, first preference (EB-1) visa. Achieving an EB-1 visa enables you to marry in the US, receive a driver’s license, and own real estate, making it nothing short of a generous gift. Competent people are highly advised to file an EB-1 visa application with all necessary details. But even for a simple EB-1 visa procedure, you’ll need a qualified EB-1 visa lawyer. The Sidman Law Group’s EB-1 visa attorneys will help you navigate the challenges and streamline the process for you.

The EB-2 visa represents the so-called “second preference” under U.S. immigration law.

My interview last week Thursday went flawlessly.
The interviewing officer was from Romania, where I’ve been multiple times, so we had a great connection.
They scheduled our Oath Ceremony the same day, and I became a US citizen on Feb 3, 2022.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me on my journey to become a US citizen.
I’m incredibly fortunate to have an attorney that believes in me and my abilities and gave me the confidence to pursue the American Dream.
I hope to make you even more proud of my future careers and life experiences in the US.
