The EB-1A is an immigrant petition that puts you on the path to getting a green card. It's for those individuals who are recognized as being at the very top of their field and who are coming to the United States to continue work in that field. If you are an accomplished individual in your field of sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, then this may be an excellent option for you.
