Posted on Nov 1st, 2017

Posted on Oct 13th, 2017
Some noncitizens may become green card holders on the strength of their extraordinary ability. Many noncitizens who have achieved great professional success wonder if it is worth a try to knock on the door of the extraordinary-ability Green Card. The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) requires that USCIS give priority, for employment-based visas, to certain classes of immigrants, including—at the front of the line—noncitizens with extraordinary ability.
