which are as follows:
This type of visa is reserved only for those who can demonstrate that

and multinational executives and managers.
The EB-2 visa is for members of the professions who hold advanced degrees
or for those who possess exceptional ability in the arts, sciences, or business.
The EB-3 visa is available to certain professionals, skilled workers,
