Self Sponsorship Options for Obtaining Permanent Residency


Are you tired of waiting for years to have your employer-sponsored ‘green card’ case processed?

If the cumbersome PERM labor certification process and seemingly infinite visa backlogs are getting you down, there may be other options available to help you obtain permanent residency quickly.

Bashyam Spiro Immigration Attorneys Murali Bashyam and Ame Coats will discuss two ways in which a foreign national can bypass the lengthy employer-sponsored permanent residency process:

1. The EB-1 category for Aliens of Extraordinary Ability

2. The exceptional worker EB-2 National Interest Waiver (NIW) category.

Both employment-based (EB) categories are based on self-sponsorship, and both have very stringent requirements.
