The EB-1C Green Card

A path to permanent residency through employment

Get Started

What is the EB-1C?

The EB-1C enables managers and executives at foreign companies to transfer to a U.S. office and qualify for a green card.

Skip the PERM process

Save months of time by skipping the PERM, a lengthy process of testing the labor market for qualified U.S. workers typically required for other employment-based green cards.

Transfer from a foreign office

If you have held a managerial position for more than one year, you can transfer to the U.S. and work for the same company.

Path to green card

An EB-1C approval puts you on the path to apply for a green card. Your spouse and your children are eligible for a green card with your EB-1C approval too!

Qualifying for the EB-1C

If you have worked in a "managerial" or "executive" capacity at a foreign company for a least one year within the past three years, the EB-1C could be the perfect green card path for you.

A VP of Finance would be considered an "executive" because they are responsible for the oversight of the company budgets.

A Director of Operations who manages fifteen employees would be considered a manager.

A functional manager who does not manage people, but does manage essential company functions such as research can also qualify for the EB-1C as a manager.
