What Are the Requirements of
USCIS for the EB1-Outstanding Researcher Category? 

Dr. William:

I have a Ph.D. and now employed in a company. I heard that USCIS has become stringent in EB1 for U.S. permanent residency application. What are the requirements of USCIS for the EB1-Outstanding Researcher category?


Answer: 

Although the criteria are stringent for EB1, the criteria for EB1-outstanding professor/researcher is lower than that for EB1-extraordinary ability. Generally, an applicant needs to establish that the applicant has made outstanding research achievements, and that the company has documented accomplishments, and employs at least three full-time researchers.
