EB-1A Extraordinary Abilities
Brief Introduction

EB-1A "aliens of extraordinary ability" is an achievement-based opportunity for a green card. USCIS permits the alien to establish aliens of extraordinary ability in the fields of sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics by evidence of receipt of a major, internationally recognized award, such as the Nobel Prize or an Academic Award.
EB-1A has the following advantages in obtaining a green card:
 • A specific job offer is not required and you could file self-petition;
 • A labor certification is not required;
 • No immigrant visa backlog and you could file I-140 and I-485 concurrently;
 • Faster and more flexible than the labor certification process. Compared to the labor certification process, you may be able to change jobs much sooner and may be able to change to a much broader range of job opportunities;
 • Be eligible for Employment Authorization and Travel Document when filing an I-485 application.
