EB2 National Interest Waiver (NIW)
At Heckler Law Group, we understand that the path to a green card can be complex and confusing, especially when it comes to the EB2 National Interest Waiver (NIW) category. Our experienced immigration team is here to guide you through the process and help you achieve your goals.
What Is the EB2 National Interest Waiver (NIW)?
An EB2 visa is a type of employment-based immigration visa that requires a job offer from a U.S. employer and a labor certification. However, the NIW is a special provision that allows foreign nationals to waive the job offer and labor certification requirements if they can demonstrate that their work is in the national interest of the U.S.
Qualifying for National Interest Waiver (NIW)
- You have an advanced degree or exceptional ability in your field of work
- Your work is in an area of substantial intrinsic merit
- Your work has a national scope or impact that is significantly above the norm in your field
- It would be beneficial to the United States to waive the job offer and labor certification requirements for you
Our immigration attorneys can help you determine whether you meet these requirements and assist you in gathering the necessary documentation to support your application.
Benefits of the EB2 National Interest Waiver (NIW)
One of the biggest advantages of the NIW is that it allows you to bypass the job offer and labor certification requirements that are otherwise necessary for EB2 applicants. This can save you time, money, and stress, and may also increase your chances of being approved for a green card.
Additionally, the NIW is not limited to specific industries or fields of work, which means that a wide range of professionals may be eligible for this category.
Our team is dedicated to helping you take advantage of the benefits of the EB2 NIW and achieve your goals of obtaining a green card.
How to Apply for the EB2 NIW
To apply for the NIW, you or your employer must submit a petition for an immigrant visa along with supporting documentation that demonstrates your eligibility for the NIW. This may include evidence of your advanced degree or exceptional ability, documentation of your work in an area of substantial intrinsic merit, and letters of recommendation from experts in your field.
