▪ EB-2: Alien of Advanced Ability With a Job Offer in the U.S. (Second Preference)
The applicant must have a job offer received from employer or sponsor in the U.S. and obtain a Labor Certification from Department of Labor.
To be eligible for this category, a petitioner must meet following requirement:

▪ Bachelor’s Degree and 5 years of related work experience;
▪ Job offer issued by an eligible employer or sponsor in the U.S.

employ the applicant instead of a U.S. national, with various evidence including the company tax records.
