Paths To Employment-Based Green Cards
The term “Employment-Based Green Card” usually refers to a U.S. based employer sponsoring an employee for legal permanent residence in the United States so that they can work permanently for that employer. (The “Green Card” is the physical card you are given to demonstrate your legal permanent residence in the United States). While most employment-based permanent residence is done through this traditional employer sponsorship method, the term can also encompass other types of cases where a candidate is sponsoring themselves without the need for an employer such as: National Interest Waivers, Extraordinary Ability Petitions, and investment based options
