EB-1C Documentation List

EB-1C petitions require an array of documentation. The petitioning employer should provide a statement with the application in which it attests to fulfilling all requirements and includes descriptions of the job position and duties to be performed by the alien transferee. Aside from this basic attestation, there are additional employer- and beneficiary-specific documents that must be included in EB-1C petitions.
