The Employment-Based Immigration Process
Although the employment-based immigration process can vary depending on
the type of employment involved and the current immigration status of
the employee, most situations will involve the following steps:
- The employer based in the United States will complete an immigration petition
for the potential employee. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
(USCIS) has to accept this petition before the process can move forward.
- The employer then files a labor certification request for the employee.
- The applicant will then receive an immigrant visa number from the State
- Next, employees currently residing in the United States should petition
for a green card. Employees living outside of the U.S. will begin the
visa process once they receive their visa number.
Employment-based immigration visas are divided into five categories, and
include individuals with extraordinary abilities, those who are exceptional
researchers or business professionals, investors, skilled and unskilled
workers, special immigrants (such as religious workers) and U.S. government
employees residing abroad. A Houston immigration attorney from our firm
