    I don’t think patents alone helps in all. You have to meet at least 3/11 requirements on this list. https://www.uscis.gov/working-united-states/permanent-workers/employment-based-immigration-first-preference-eb-1

    I got EB1A with 0 publications, so the short answer is you don’t need that but it depends what else you can bring to the table.

    Be prepared to spend a lot of evenings gathering evidence and drafting letters, 100s of pages.

    Personally I recommend EB2 if not from a backlogged country, much much less work and no stress and takes about as long without PP. But no downside with EB1, except for the work and 9-12 months waiting in uncertainty until you get to know whether you are good enough (quite subjective).

      Why 9-12 months - you have premium processing ?

      Non-academic profile, mostly achievements, awards and recognition from 10yrs in industry.

      Most lawyers will recommend against PP to avoid RFE, but most get RFE anyway these days.

      Lawyers want to postpone good news but I don't think PP is that bad - if case is good/bad, approval/RFE will come anyway

    Downsides ? If you are from a backlogged company it will save you decades - take your time , prepare well for the EB1A application

    For EB1B (company sponsored), typically they look for original contributions to the field. Citations for your publications is the number one metric used. Typically 100+ citations is considered average. If u ha e publications then create a google scholar or researchgate profile and see how many u have. Patents typically dont have as much weightage as citations since patents typically only benefit the company you are working for, whereas publications and original contributions help the research community and benefits the public as a whole.

    There are no downsides to filing an EB-1 petition, even if it's rejected. You retain your priority date from EB-2 and you are not barred from trying again in the future.

    How do you get a patent? How many patents are required for EB1?

    You can always upgrade to EB1 from EB2/3 irrespective of same or different company... however EB1 requirements are much stringent that your lawyer can explain. Good news is you still retain the priority date from EB2.
