National Interest Waiver (NIW) Green Card Applications

Experienced Immigration Lawyer Serving San Mateo

At The Alagiri Immigration Law Firm, we understand that seeking an employment-based green card so you can work in the United States can be difficult. From securing the right job offer and work permits to filling out immigration status petitions and dealing with ridiculously long wait-times, the entire process can be stressful and challenging. That is why our team of legal professionals is here to answer your questions and walk you through every aspect of the immigration process.

There are two green card options that do not require you to meet labor certification and job offer requirements when you petition:

  • EB-1: This option is available for managers, executives, and applicants with extraordinary achievements.
  • EB-2: If you have an advanced degree or exceptional ability, you can obtain a national interest waiver (NIW).

What Are the Requirements for the National Interest Waiver?

  • Proof that your endeavor has substantial merit and is of national importance.
  • You must have the educational background, experience, relevant skills, and record to advance your proposed endeavor.
  • Proof that you will be able to succeed in your endeavor if you are given the opportunity.
  • Proof that the U.S. would benefit from waiving the job offer requirement.

You will need the following documents if you want to petition for the EB-2 National Interest Waiver:

  • Form I-140.
  • Form ETA-750B.
  • Proof of your advanced degree or exceptional ability.
  • Petition letter.
  • Letters of recommendation.
  • Affidavits from respected leaders in your field.
  • Awards and recognition of past achievements in your field.
  • Proof that a labor certification would harm national interests.
  • Proof that you have at least 2 years of experience in your field.
  • An updated version of your resume.
  • Proof of memberships, conferences, and published articles.
