Other green card applications may be filed simultaneously.
For whom is an EB1-ET Green Card appropriate?
Executives of multinational companies in a managerial or executive capacity in L visas and their immediate family members.
What are the requirements for obtaining an EB1-ET Green Card?
A multinational manager or executive is eligible for priority worker status if he/she has been employed outside the US. in the three years preceding the petition for at least one year by a parent firm or corporation to the U.S. petitioning employer and is seeking to come to the U.S. in order to continue working for that company or organization. The minimum one year prior employment must have been outside the United States, in a managerial or executive capacity, and with the same parent company, affiliate, or subsidiary of the U.S. employer.
The petitioner must be a US. employer, having conducted business in the U.S. for at least one year, and which is either an affiliate, subsidiary or the same employer as the firm, corporation or other legal business entity that employed the foreign national abroad.
