To qualify for EB-1C, you must meet certain requirements:

  • You must have been employed outside the United States for at least 1 year in the 3 years preceding the petition or the most recent lawful nonimmigrant admission if you are already working for the U.S. petitioning employer.
  • The U.S. petitioner must have been doing business for at least 1 year, have a qualifying relationship to the entity you worked for outside the U.S., and
  • The U.S. petitioner must intend to employ you in a managerial or executive capacity.
