Employment-Based Immigration for Special Immigrants

Eligibility Requirements for EB-4
Because the EB-4 is so broad, the requirements differ based on the profession or reason for claiming eligibility.
That said, all categories require a completed Form I-360 with supporting documentation. EB-4 applicants do not need to have employer sponsorship or an official job offer.
If you are a religious worker, you must meet a few requirements. You’ll have to:
- Demonstrate that you have two years of experience within a specific religious organization or denomination in the United States.
- Prove you were working as a minister or in another religious-based occupation for two years before filling out the application.
- Prove you intend to carry on with your work after you are admitted into the U.S.
For non-minister religious workers, there is a cap of 5,000 visas to be issued every fiscal year. There is no cap for special immigrant religious workers who are entering the U.S. to carry on the vocation of a minister.
