Filing an EB-1 visa for business immigration

On Behalf of | Apr 27, 2022

Emigrating to New Jersey for business purposes doesn’t have to be difficult. The process is fairly easy to understand. You can get a green card through the EB-1 visa process. To do so, there are a certain number of steps that you will have to follow. The stages of the process can be outlined below for your convenience.

What are the steps to get an EB-1?

The process of getting an EB-1 visa for the purpose of business immigration consists of several steps.

First, you will need to have your prospective employer petition for your entry into the United States as an alien worker. You can also petition on your own behalf if you fit the extraordinary ability category. To do this, you will need to use Form-140.

Once a visa has been made available, you will need to apply for an adjustment of your status. This will be from a visa holder to a green card holder. You will need to use Form I-485. After you have done so, you will need to await a final decision from the USCIS.

How long do you need to wait?

The length of time that you will need to wait for your employment based visa will vary depending on the specific details of your personal situation. The usual processing time for the I-140 form will be about 15 days. This is assuming that there is no backlog. If this is the case, you can expect the process to take a bit longer.

You should note that the processing fee for Form I-140 will be $700. The fee you pay for Form I-485 will be $1,140 plus an $85 biometric fee. The fee for Form I-907, your official request for premium processing, will come to a total of $2,500.
