Eb-1 How Long Does It Take

By Tiara

Over the past few years, there have been many theories about how long it takes to find your true love. Some say that you will know when you meet your soulmate, and this feeling is just too strong to pass up.

Others believe that you will always feel incomplete without someone else in your life. They think that even if you do find “true” love, they will eventually leave you.

Some people believe that love is an emotion that comes only after several relationships, while others think that it is possible to feel romantic feelings for anyone at any time.

Most theories seem to focus more on what love is, than how to tell whether or not you are in it. Many people compare different qualities of a relationship to determine if it is truly worth the title of ‘love’.

In fact, some psychologists actually ask potential patients if their current partner is loved before they can officially give them the label. This is because being loved is such a subjective thing.

What one person may perceive as proof of love is completely different from another’s. So, trying to identify if your mate is loved out-of-the-box isn’t easy!

But don’t worry, we’re here to help.

Steps to qualify for EB1

First, you need to make sure that your employment qualifies as “full time”. This can be tricky since there is no hard and fast rule or regulation defining what constitutes full-time work. Some examples of non-qualifying part-time positions are:

Part time student employee at an academic institution

Student intern working during school hours

A seasonal position (for example, ski instructor)

If you can prove that your job meets this definition, then it is safe to assume that your employer will tell you yourself that you do not meet the requirements for the EB1 visa.

By having these types of jobs, your income does not satisfy the requirement of being considered full-time.

Procedures for applying for EB1

The next step in your process to become an eb2 investor is completing the application form for employment-based visa (EB1) status. This applies not only to getting your own visa, but also to proving your investment qualification as well.

This article will go into more detail about what things you need to include when filling out this form, how long it can take to complete, and what kind of documents you’ll require. Make sure to look through our full guidelines at that time!

What are Employment Based Visas?

Employment visas are given to individuals who are able to prove they have a job offer somewhere in the world. These jobs must be either related to the beneficiary’s field or position, or if they are directly training them for their career.

The individual receiving the visa cannot work while they are waiting to find out if they get approved, so employers usually negotiate a work permit with a second year contract. This way, once the applicant gets approval, they can begin working immediately.

Individuals who apply for an employment based Visa (EB1) are typically looking to relocate themselves, or create a new life in a country different from their own. Both situations require a lot of effort to coordinate, which is why there is a fee for processing the paperwork and paying for flights and hotels.

Timeline for applying for EB1

After you have determined that you are eligible to apply for an employment visa, your next step is to actually apply! This can be done through a trusted immigration agency or via online resources like use our link to VISABAYE to learn more about how to apply as a skilled worker.

Most agencies will require you to do some basic paperwork before processing your application. This includes proof of health insurance, proof of savings, and proof of residence in Canada or US state eligibility. They may also ask to verify your salary using pay stubs or W2 forms.

Agencies typically take 2-6 weeks to process all applications so keep this time frame in mind when deciding when to make your application.

Approval or denial of EB1

There are two main reasons that determine whether you get approved for an employment-based visa in the United States. These include the Immigrant Visa Office (IVO) at the Department of State, and the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), both within the Department of Homeland Security.

The IVO decides if you qualify to live in America as a permanent resident by reviewing your personal documents and information, as well as looking into your financial situation. The USCIS reviews your employment history, proof of sufficient funds to make living in the USA possible, and evidence showing how you will be supporting yourself once here.

Both agencies can take several months to review your application, so it is important to stay informed and check back with them regularly.

Appeal a denial of EB1

If you are denied an adjustment of status or a visa due to this category, you may be able to appeal your decision. There are two main ways to do this.

You can file a lawsuit in federal court seeking to have your case re-reviewed. This is often referred to as filing a “charge” of discrimination with the Equal Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Federal Trade Agency (FTC).

Alternatively, you can ask the government to review its decision again by filing what’s called a petition for administrative reconsideration.

While it is very rare, there is some evidence that people who filed lawsuits were successful. However, we should note that most people were not aware of these options at the time because they did not exist.

Know your country

In this article, we will talk about how long it takes to become a resident of a new country. We will also look at some things that can make the process move faster or slower. As with anything related to moving abroad, there are lots of different factors that influence whether you need to start the process or not.

So, what is residency? Residency means living in a certain country for a longer period of time than just visiting. You have to live there for at least six months to be considered a resident. That length of stay cannot be shorter than three months unless you are married to a national citizen or you work for an international organization in the area.

There are two main types of residence status depending on which country you reside in. If you lived in another country before coming to Canada as a student or worker, then coordinate status applies. This type of residency does not require you to change your citizenship.

If you lived in Canada before, you may be able to apply for Canadian permanent resident (PR) status. What makes this status special is that you get many other benefits attached to it such as health coverage and tax breaks.

This article has discussed some important points regarding residency in another country.

Know your company

As mentioned before, knowing your current employer is one of the most important things you can do as an employee looking for employment outside of quitting or being fired. You don’t want to start searching until you have confirmed that you no longer work there, but it makes sense to begin thinking about your next career move well in advance.

It’s not uncommon to feel overwhelmed after leaving something you love, especially if it's been more than a few months since you parted ways.

Finding another position takes time, so try to be patient and understand that these things take place naturally. Don’t get too focused on what employers think of your past performance, instead ask yourself how you fit into their organization and what they expect from you in the future.

Your reputation will speak for itself, even if you aren't getting paid at the moment! Also, keep in mind that people change jobs every year, so don’t let all those rumors surrounding yours hurt your chances for success.

That said, it's always best to remain friendly with former colleagues, because hiring managers may look into online reviews and comments.

Create a company in the EU

The next step is to create your new business in Europe! This process is called establishing an entity, or sometimes referred to as ‘doing business’ in the EU. You will need to choose which country you want to establish your business in, and then register with that country’s tax authority (known as a Revenue Agent) to allow your business to start trading.

It can take anything from a few days to a couple of months depending on how quickly your business takes off, but we would recommend doing as much as possible before registering officially with HMRC.

There are lots of things to consider at this stage so it is best to do as much work for your own business as you can before registering. For example, you should have proof of income (such as pay slips), bank statements, receipts, etc., so these must be ready ahead of time.

Once everything is all set up and you are totally confident that your business will succeed, then you can finally register with HMRC. But remember, even if you don’t feel like you’re enough into your own business yet, don’t rush through this stage! Even though it may seem like there is nothing else to do, leaving something out could prove to be very costly later on.
