Employment Based Immigration
You can also seek immigrant status based on a permanent employment opportunity. You must be eligible under one of the five categories of employment-based immigration recognized under U.S. law, and your employer must be willing to file an immigrant visa petition (usually Form I-140, Petition for Alien Worker) on your behalf, which the government must approve. Your employer will also be required to complete and submit a labor certification request to the Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration.
This category also includes Capital Investment immigrant visas, which are relatively rare. You may be eligible for immigrant status if you make a qualifying capital investment in the United States, provided that the investment meets a certain threshold dollar amount, benefits the U.S. economy, and creates or saves a specific number of jobs.
