The EB-1B Outstanding Researcher and Professor category is an attractive route to permanent resident status for foreign national researchers and professors from all countries to the extent that the individual meets the qualifications discussed in our EB-1B brochure. Foreign nationals from India and China may benefit from the EB-1B Outstanding Researcher and Professor category as green card availability is current for the majority of the fiscal calendar year. Every October 1, new numbers are released. To be eligible for an EB-1B employer sponsored green card, the foreign national must be employed or have a job offer. Since the labor certification process is not required for the EB-1B Outstanding Researcher and Professor classification, employers will enjoy not having to go through the lengthy and burdensome process.
