An EB-1 visa is intended for "priority workers" and grants the worker employment-based permanent residency. You may be eligible for an employment-based, first preference visa if you have an extraordinary ability, are an outstanding professor or researcher, or are a multinational executive or manager.
A priority worker can be defined by one of the following:
- Someone with extraordinary abilities in the arts, education, business, or athletics
- Outstanding professors or researchers who are recognized internationally for their outstanding academic achievements in a particular field
- Some executives and managers of foreign companies who are transferred to the United States.
