• EB1B offer an opportunityfor alien who is an Outstanding Researcher or Professor with international recognition for his/her outstanding achievement in a particular scientific or scholarly field and has secured a permanent position from organizations with research nature.
  • The petition must be sponsored by a research related US employer, generally a university or research institution or any other private employer with a research department that has at least three full-time researchers on its workforce.
  • For someone whose credentials may not be strong enough to an EB1B, EB1B can be a great option.
  • Currently, the visa backlog for EB1B is slightly longer than EB2 worldwide, but still significantly better than EB2 for India born beneficiaries.
  • Premium Processing is available for EB1B petition, meaning that once the petition is filed with USCIS, it can be approved within 15 calendar days if premium processing fee is paid.


  • In addition to providing job offer and signing immigration forms, the employer must also provide documentation showing its own research accomplishments and standing in the relevant academic or research field.
  • USCIS applies a two-part test to adjudicate EB1B cases:
    1. Whether the evidence provided satisfy as One-time Achievement or meets at least two criteria provided by law, including:
      • Evidence of receipt of major prizes or awards for outstanding achievement
      • Evidence of membership in associations that require their members to demonstrate outstanding achievement
      • Evidence of published material in professional publications written by others about the alien’s work in the academic field
      • Evidence of participation, either on a panel or individually, as a judge of the work of others in the same or allied academic field
      • Evidence of original scientific or scholarly research contributions in the field
      • Evidence of authorship of scholarly books or articles (in scholarly journals with international circulation) in the field
    2. Final merits determination: considering all provided evidence, whether the alien demonstrates by preponderance of evidence that he/she (i) has risen to the very top of the field of endeavor; and (ii) sustained national or international acclaim and that his or her achievements have been recognized in the field of expertise.

Therefore, merely meeting 2 out of 6 criteria does not guarantee approval of EB1B petition.  E.g., scholar who has more than 300 citations for his/her publications but stop working in that particular field may be considered as fail to sustain his/her international acclaims in the field of endeavor.
