Thanks all for the info, but if I have to go in for an EB-1, I need to have a job offer- isnt that the basic requirement for this category? Getting a job offer is not an issue, but the sponsorship for an H-1 visa is the hurdle which I am trying to overcome. I have no issues on proving my EB-1 or NIW eligibility. Though a great lawyer would be helpful- I would like to make my own case. So if it is NIW even this will be backlogged due to this being EB2 slot?
Hi, I have a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences from University of Texas. I am currently working in the UK in pharmaceutical research. My research has involved health care and mainly obesity, new drug approvals, etc. Am i eligible to apply for a US green card under the NIW program? Or is an US based employment necessary to apply in the NIW category? My current employer is a multinational with HQ in the US.
