  • EB1 from outside of US


    I am a Permanent resident of Canada and I stayed 7 years in US on L1-B initially and then on L1-A and then eventually moved to Canada on PR. I am considering migrating to US but do you know whether EB-1 (under Executive managerial category) can be applied with me being outside of US. I don't want to move to US on L1-A and then have my company apply EB-1 for me. Instead want to have my employer apply for EB-1 first and only on successful approval, move to US. Reason being I am on PR and counting towards my Canadian citizenship hence don't want to leave Canada for US unless it is confirmed that I will be approved on EB-1.

    In other words, can EB-1 be applied with the applicant being outside of US and working for the same company in a managerial capacity (I already qualify for the requirement of one year employment as manager outside of US in the last three years ) ? Any pros and cons around this that I should know of before I speak with my employer on this ?

    Thanks for all your inputs...
