USCIS Policy Memorandum on Eligibility for EB-1 Multinational Executives and Managers

USCIS issued a policy memorandum designating Matter of S-P- Inc. as an Adopted Decision. Matter of S-P-, Inc. clarifies that a beneficiary who worked abroad for a qualifying multinational organization for at least one year, but left its employment for a period of more than two years after being admitted to the United States as a nonimmigrant, does not satisfy the one-in-three foreign employment requirement for immigrant classification as a multinational manager or executive. The USCIS policy memorandum instructs that, to cure the interruption in employment, the beneficiary would need another additional year of qualifying employment abroad.
