USCIS Updates Policy Manual: Clearer EB-1 Visa Evidence Guidance with Emphasis on STEM Fields

USCIS has updated its Policy Manual to offer clearer guidance on the evidence evaluated for EB-1 immigrant visa classifications, specifically for those demonstrating extraordinary ability (E11) and those who are outstanding professors or researchers (E12). This revised guidance emphasizes evidence relevant to STEM fields and aims to help petitioners submit the most suitable evidence to establish a beneficiary’s eligibility. Further details can be found in the Policy Manual, released on 09/12/2023.
