Is EB-1 hard to get?
Is EB-1 hard to get? EB-1A Visas are the most difficult to get, as well as the most flexible as you can self-petition without a job offer. You’ll need to either fulfil 3 of 10 USCIS requirements, or show a one time achievement which justifies the visa offer. The examples given are winning a Pulitzer Prize, and Oscar or an Olympic medal.
Can EB-1 be rejected? Each year, countless EB1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) cases were denied even though the petitioner/beneficiary had good credentials and put countless efforts preparing for the case. If your EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) case is denied, don’t be despaired.
Can I apply for EB-1 on my own? What is the EB1A Visa? The EB1A visa is an immigrant visa for people with an extraordinary ability in the arts, sciences, business, education, or athletics. The EB1A visa does not require you to have a job offer in the United States. You can apply for an EB1A visa on your own behalf through self-petition.
What happens if EB-1 is rejected? If the USCIS denied your I-140 petition in the EB1A Extraordinary Ability case, you have the right to appeal their decision by filing an appeal with either the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) or the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA).
