Understanding requirements for the EB-1c visa


The EB-1c visa is similar to the L-1 visa in that it can allow foreign executives and managers come to the United States to work with a U.S. company that is closely associated with their foreign employer. Unlike the L-1 visa, the EB-1c visa allows the visa holder to potentially obtain a Green Card in as few as six months after entering the U.S. To be eligible to apply for the EB-1c visa, applicants must prove each of the following:

  • They were employed as a manger or executive of a foreign company for a minimum of one calendar year during any of the three years prior to applying for this status or entering the U.S. under any non-immigrant status
  • They will continue to be employed as a manager or executive of their foreign company while they are in the United States
  • They must be working for a foreign company that is engaging in “substantial business” with a company in the United States after the applicant moves to the U.S.
  • Their foreign employer must be closely related to a company in the United States—for instance, the foreign company may be a parent or subsidiary of the U.S. company

The EB-1c visa is also different from the L-1 visa in that applicants must be able to show that the U.S. company associated with their foreign employer will be able to cover the cost of their salary so long as the applicant is in the United States.

If you would like to learn more about what it takes to work through the application process for the EB-1c visa, you should contact a visa attorney at AmLaw Group at your convenience.
