If you have extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, you may qualify for EB-1A/B green card application. Your achievements must have been publicly recognized, and resulted in a period of sustained national or international acclaim.
You may qualify for EB-1C green card as a priority worker under the multinational executives and managers subcategory if you have been employed as an executive or manager by a qualified company outside the U.S. for at least one out of the past three years.

EB-2/EB-3 based on PERM
If you are workers with advanced degrees (EB-2), professionals, skilled workers or unskilled workers (EB-3) and you have a definite, permanent job offer from a U.S employer, your employer might apply green cards for you through employment. PERM labor certification are normally required for this category to prove to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) that there are no able, qualified U.S. workers available and willing to take the job you have been offered.
National Interest Waiver
This category is an exception to EB-2 based on PERM. If you are applying in the second preference category and your presence will benefit the U.S. in the future, you may be able to apply without a job offer or PERM, through what’s we called a NIW. In order to “benefit” the U.S., you’ll have to show that your work in the U.S. will have a favorable impact on its economic, employment, educational, housing, environmental, or cultural situation.
