The EB1c green card checklist below provides a general idea of what type of evidence is usually needed for an EB1c green card petition. To have a better understanding of this list, please read the EB1c visa overview and then go through EB1c requirements and documents to see the details of what is usually included or not included as evidence.

The overall emphasis on the documents and requirements/criteria of an EB1c green card petition is on the job positions that the person held and was offered must consist of primarily executive or managerial job duties, and that the U.S. sponsoring employer and the overseas employer must have a qualified relationship.
The requirements for an EB1c green card petition are extensive and while ticking the boxes of requirements sounds simple enough, figuring out what items should be included and strategizing how the petition is presented is not. It is common practice and strongly encouraged to obtain an attorney for employment-based green card petitions.
Alternatives to the EB1c Green Card Petition
For people who qualify for the EB1c green card petition (Multinational Executive or Manager), it is possible that the person can also qualify for an EB1a green card petition (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) which is less restrictive as it can be self-sponsored (where the person can pay and start the green card petition by themselves) and it does not require a specific U.S. employer just proof that the person will continue to work in their field of expertise.
For people who do not qualify for the EB1c green card petition yet, the closest alternative would be filing a National Interest Waiver (NIW) with an EB2 green card petition. The EB2 National Interest Waiver green card petition would require the person to have at least a master’s degree (or its equivalent) or have exceptional ability (lower standard than the extraordinary ability in the EB1a green card petition) in the sciences, arts, or business, and the person would also need to show that their work will be able to benefit the United States significantly.
Other alternatives would be the more commonly used employment-based green card petitions such as the regular EB2 green card petitions (Advanced Degree) and the EB3 green card petitions (Professional, Skilled, Other Workers). These types of employment-based green card petitions usually require a sponsoring U.S. employer and a PERM Labor Certification.
