EB-1 Outstanding Professor or Researcher
Boston EB-1 Outstanding Professor or Researcher Visa Lawyers
Outstanding Professors or Researchers
EB-1 immigrant visas are also reserved for those who qualify as an “outstanding professor or researcher.” An EB-1 outstanding professor or researcher visa gives qualified professionals the opportunity to attain permanent residency. Like all other EB-1 visas, there is an advantage in not having to go through the time-consuming labor certification process.
However, the qualifications for an outstanding professor or researcher visa have high standards and require particular documentation of employment offers. The USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) requires “international recognition for your outstanding achievements in a particular academic field.” This includes at least three years of teaching or researching experience in that field.
The highly experienced EB-1 outstanding professor visa lawyers at Tadmor & Tadmor, LLP, can explain the qualifications required and help you through the application process.

An individual seeking an EB-1 outstanding professor or researcher visa must provide documentation showing at least two out of the following criterion:
- Recipient of major prizes or awards for outstanding achievement
- Membership in associations that require their members to demonstrate outstanding achievement
- Published material in professional publications written by others about the applicant’s work in the academic field
- Participated either on a panel or individually, as a judge of the work of others in the same or allied academic field
