The EB-1 Multinational Executive and Manager category is reserved for executives and managers of multinational companies who are transferred to US based operation on a Permanent basis. Often the foreign employee is first petitioned under the very similar L-1 visa category, which is for temporary multinational transferees.
Although no labor certification is required, a job offer is required for this category. Successful petitions will include evidence that the applicant had been employed as an executive or high level manager at the affiliated entity abroad for at least one full year (of the past three preceding entry into the U.S.), and will continue to work in the United States in a similar executive or managerial capacity.
The U.S. and foreign entities must be related as a branch, parent, subsidiary, joint venture partner or affiliate, and must enjoy a commonality of majority ownership and managerial control. The U.S. entity must also have been doing business for at least 1 year.
