The EB-1B visa is an immigration visa of choice for professors and researchers who demonstrate excellence in a scientific or scholarly field. Foreign applicants must meet three criteria to obtain this visa:
- International recognition for excellence in a specific academic discipline;
- Three years of relevant research or teaching experience; and
- A job offer for a permanent research position or tenured or tenure-track teaching position.
Potential applicants often have the choice between numerous similar visa categories, including EB-1A visas for potential employees with extraordinary ability, EB-2 and EB-3 visas for skilled/educated workers in high demand, and numerous multi-year visas for “non-immigrant” employees, researchers, and exchange students.
