Difference between EB2 and EB3 Green Card Application
My employer will apply for Green Card for me based on the PERM Labor Certification. I have a MS degree in Business Management. What are the major difference between EB2 and EB3 Green Card application?
In a Green Card case based on a PERM Labor Certification, there are two possible category options: EB2 and EB3. As many of our readers know, however, the difference between these two preference categories is significant - as well as the processing times, in most situations. The category impacts the timing of eligibility for filing an application to adjust status (I-485), one's eligibility for approval of the I-485, and ultimately, the resulting grant of permanent residence.
The EB3 classification incorporates skilled workers and professionals. In addition, EB3 has a subcategory of other workers. Although all three of these types are assigned to the EB3 classification, typically, those filed as EB3 other workers are subject to an even longer wait for their priority dates to become current. The EB2 classification is for those positions offered to individuals who are members of the professions holding advanced degrees. The adjudicator determines the I-140's preference classification, following the legal guidelines for each category.
