Engineer, don't give up your profession to live in the USA!

Engineering is one of the most sought-after fields for professionals in the USA.

Along with science, technology, and mathematics, engineering is part of the well-known STEM field, which plays a very important role in the progress and innovation of the USA.

The country heavily relies on the expertise of engineers to drive key sectors such as information technology, transportation, and infrastructure. Qualified professionals in this field are considered the engines behind innovation, developing solutions to complex challenges and shaping the future of the nation.

Therefore, if you are in the field of engineering and dream of living legally in the USA, you have great chances of getting a Green Card!

What is the first step for an engineer to get a Green Card?

The first step is to analyze which visa option is best for your situation.

Contact an immigration lawyer you trust and have your resume eligibility analyzed. Murtaz Law offers this analysis for free. Our goal is to help you understand the ideal path for you to follow.

With this, you will know if you meet the necessary requirements for each category and will be guided on the next steps.

Since it is a visa that does not require a job offer, the EB2-NIW might be a viable option, depending on your resume.

This visa recognizes and values the exceptional skills and significant contributions of engineers to their fields. By demonstrating that your expertise is of national interest to the USA, you can obtain a Green Card based on your own achievements and merits.

Do you need to revalidate your degree to work as an engineer in the USA?

In some cases, it will not be necessary to revalidate your engineering degree to work in the USA. However, it is important that the employer recognizes the credibility and equivalence of the foreign degree with American educational standards.

This is done through a credential evaluation. This is a broader process where you should look for an agency that can evaluate your degree comparatively and ensure that your qualifications are adequately understood by American institutions and employers.

Additionally, in some fields of engineering, such as civil and electrical, it may be necessary to obtain a state professional license to practice the profession.

Licensing requirements vary from state to state and generally include the completion of an approved educational program, supervised work experience, and passing licensing exams.

All that said, it is important to reinforce that if you are an engineer, you can live and work in the USA without giving up your profession!

At Murtaz Law, we have had several approved cases, and we can affirm that this dream can become a reality even sooner than you imagine.
