Visa Options for Priority Immigrants 


Statue of Liberty

Streamlined routes to U.S. visas

Special streamlined U.S. immigration options are available to certain groups of foreign nationals in the arts, academics, sciences, or business. In order to qualify, an individual must be either:

 

Scientist/Researcher

Green cards for athletes, scholars, and scientists

Each visa type has its own qualifications and permissions, but in many cases, obtaining a visa in one of these three categories is the fastest way for accomplished athletes, scholars, or artists to obtain a green card without an employer sponsor. Of course, every case is different, and not everyone qualifies. For general information about priority visa types, read over FAQs on Extraordinary Ability, Outstanding Research, and NIW-based green cards. 

Some accomplished individuals may have extraordinability ability in arts, science, or athletics but are not qualified for a permanent visa. For some of these people, the O-1 employment visa may be a welcome temporary visa option.
