Some employment-based categories for permanent residence include:
- “Extraordinary ability” in the arts, sciences, athletics or business
- “Outstanding” accomplishments as a researcher or professor
- “National interest waiver”
- Employee transfers to the U.S. from abroad for multinational companies
- Labor certification
