What Can a DC EB-4 Visa Attorney Do for You?

Our experienced immigration team assists clients in determining whether they fit into one of the requisite EB-4 visa categories, which are listed below.

Additionally, we work with our clients and their employers to properly complete and submit the EB-4 visa application. We keep our clients apprised of the status of their case through each step of the process and answer any questions they may have.

EB-4 Visa Eligibility

EB-4 visas are processed and adjudicated by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This type of visa can lead to lawful permanent resident status in the U.S., also known as a “green card.” EB-4 visas are available for special immigrants, including:

  • Religious workers
  • Certain members of the armed forces
  • Broadcasters
  • Iraqi and Afghan translators
  • Physicians
  • Panama Canal treaty employees

Each category type has specific requirements, so it is important that you work with a DC EB-4 visa lawyer to ensure that you satisfy all the requirements for the category type you wish to apply under.

Individuals who hold an EB-4 visa may apply to have their spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 admitted to the U.S. as well.

There is currently an annual cap of 10,000 green cards available for this type of visa, so only applications received each year before the cap is reached will be considered. Individuals wishing to apply for an EB-4 visa should determine whether the cap has been reached yet for that year before submitting an application.

How to Apply for an EB-4 Visa

The process begins with the individual’s employer completing a Form I-360. The Form I-360 is lengthy, and it is important that the form is filled out completely and accurately. The form and supporting documentation must be submitted to USCIS at the appropriate location, and most petitioners must submit a $405 filing fee. In certain situations, however, an individual may self-petition as opposed to having their employer petition on their behalf, so it is important to work with a DC EB-4 visa lawyer to determine if this option is available to you.
