SECOND PREFERENCE (EB-2)

The EB-2 category is a Green Card for qualified people with exceptional ability and unique skills in their areas of expertise or training or who are members of the professions holding advanced degrees.

Professionals from the most diverse areas and with more than five years of proven experience in business, arts, and sciences fit this profile. Scientists, physicians, dentists, researchers, artists, entrepreneurs, educators, athletes, or those with a Ph.D. can apply for this category.

Their contributions to the United States national interest need to be demonstrated in a grounded manner, fulfilling all the requirements required by Immigration Law.

The Government of the United States is aware of the potential of these well-prepared professionals and seeks to improve the quality of bilateral relations with several nations through strategic partnerships, such as that developed with HAYMAN-WOODWARD.
