Brief Introduction 

  • A qualifying relationship must exist between the foreign employer and the U.S. employer
  • Such a relationship exists when the U.S. employer is an affiliate, parent or a subsidiary of the foreign firm, corporation, or other legal entity
  • The petitioning employer must be a U.S. employer
  • The employer must have been doing business for at least 1 year, as an affiliate, a subsidiary, or as the same corporation that employed the beneficiary abroad​
  • The beneficiary must be employed in a managerial or executive position


  • Visas are mostly immediately available for those who qualify
  • May file with premium processing, shortening the processing time 



  • I-140 Application (Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker): 6-8 months – no premium processing option available
  • I-485 Application (Permanent Residence Application): 6 months​
  • Can submit both at the same time. But if I-140 is rejected then your I-485 form will be automatically rejected as well
