Can private companies sponsor Eb-1B?
Yes, a private company can file an Eb-1B petition for a qualified alien worker. However, there are additional requirements a private company has to meet for filing Eb-1B petitions. If the employer is a private company rather than a university or educational institution, the department, division, or institute of the private employer must employ at least three persons full-time in research activities and have achieved documented accomplishments in an academic field.
