Green Cards and Nonimmigrant Visas for Individuals with Extraordinary Abilities

You do not need to be the best in your field – you only need to be at the top of your field.

You can apply for a self-petitioned green card without a U.S. sponsor or specific offer of U.S. employment if you qualify as an extraordinary individual.
