If you or someone you love is looking to immigrate to Illinois, Wisconsin or another part of the United States by way of a second-preference EB-2 visa, you may be wondering if you or that loved one meet the eligibility requirements needed to qualify. You may be able to secure this type of visa if you hold an advanced degree within your field or its equivalent, or if you are able to demonstrate an exceptional ability in the arts, business or science. You may also be able to pursue this type of visa via what is known as a National Interest Waiver.
