EB-2 Visa Law and Legal Definition

The EB-2 classification is for those foreign nationals who are professionals and hold advanced degrees or their equivalent or exceptional ability in the field of sciences, arts, or business and those who will substantially benefit American interests or welfare.

Generally, there are three types of EB-2 Visas. They are as follows:

EB-2(A): This category is meant for foreign nationals professionals holding 'advanced degrees' (masters degree or higher) and with a job offer from a U.S. company.

EB-2(B): This category is for foreign nationals with an 'exceptional ability' in the sciences, business or arts and with a job offer from a U.S. company.

EB-2(C): This category is for foreign nationals with exceptional ability, or an advanced degree, who can prove that their activities will substantially benefit the U.S. national interest.
