It can take varying amounts of time to compile the necessary documentation for an EB-2 visa, as the specific documents required will depend on the individual circumstances of the applicant and the nature of their job offer. The EB-2 visa is a employment-based visa for individuals with advanced degrees or exceptional ability in their field. To apply for an EB-2 visa, an applicant will need to submit a number of documents to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), including:
Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker
Evidence of the applicant’s advanced degree or exceptional ability
Evidence of the applicant’s job offer from a US employer
Evidence of the applicant’s qualifications for the job
Other supporting documents as required by the USCIS
Gathering and preparing these documents can take some time, as the applicant will need to gather evidence of their qualifications and work experience, and may need to have certain documents translated or authenticated. It is a good idea to start the process of gathering documentation as early as possible to give yourself plenty of time to prepare everything. It is also a good idea to consult with an immigration attorney or accredited representative, as they can help ensure that you have all the necessary documentation and that it is properly prepared.
