EB-2 visa for HR professionals

If you are a Human Resources professional with ambitions to develop your career in the United States, the EB-2 NIW visa could be the gateway to your new life in America.

Highly qualified executives and human resources professionals may be eligible for green cards through the EB-2 NIW visa. How does this work?

Understanding the EB-2 NIW Visa

The EB-2 NIW visa is a visa category intended for professionals with exceptional skills and advanced degrees: it is responsible for the phenomenon of the worldwide brain drain to the United States, as professionals from various fields and countries are eligible for green cards through it.

US immigration establishes specific criteria for professionals and investors to be eligible under their particular visa categories, but everyone must bear in mind that their skills and abilities must be used for the progress and well-being of American society

And the more an applicant can contribute to the development of the United States, the greater the chance of being approved for an American visa category. 

Three professional categories stand out for obtaining an EB-2 NIW visa: business, arts and sciences

As a Human Resources executive, you are included in the business category. Human Resources professionals are well paid in the US, as you can see below:

Eligibility requirements for the EB-2 NIW Visa

To be eligible for an EB-2 NIW green card, you must have a bachelor's degree, exceptional or extraordinary skills in your field, and at least five years of professional experience.

To prove your experience and skills, you can present your university degrees, letters from superiors attesting to your professional qualifications, a license used to practice your profession in Brazil, professional awards and recognitions, and proof that your remuneration is at a level above the market average; and that you are an outstanding professional in your field.

Advantages of the EB-2 NIW Visa

The EB-2 NIW visa is part of the permanent residence visas: its holders are green card holders, meaning that if they follow all the rules of immigration and the American government, they will have the right to live and work permanently in the United States.

The Green Card is the first step towards American citizenship, as in most cases only foreigners who are already permanent residents of the United States can obtain it.
