Advantages of the EB2 NIW

The EB2 NIW stands out among other employment-based immigration options due to its unique advantages. The most significant of these is the absence of a job offer or labor certification requirement. This gives you, the applicant, unparalleled flexibility and control over your immigration journey. The EB2 NIW allows you to pursue your career aspirations in the U.S. without being tied to a specific employer.

In addition, the EB2 NIW can offer a faster path to obtaining a green card compared to other visa categories. This is because the EB2 NIW is not subject to the lengthy labor certification process, which can significantly expedite your immigration timeline.

Qualifying for the Visa

To be eligible for an EB2 NIW, you must meet the EB2 visa criteria and convincingly demonstrate that it is in the national interest to waive the job offer and labor certification requirements. This typically involves illustrating that your work has substantial merit and national importance. You must show that you are well-positioned to advance your field and that waiving the requirements would be beneficial to the U.S.

The criteria for the EB2 NIW are stringent, and the burden of proof lies with the applicant. However, with the right guidance and preparation, it is possible to build a strong case that clearly demonstrates your eligibility and the national interest of your work.

The Application Process

The application process for the EB2 NIW involves filing Form I-140, Petition for Alien Worker, along with evidence supporting your eligibility for the NIW. This evidence may include letters of recommendation, publications, awards, and other documentation demonstrating your exceptional ability or advanced degree and the national interest of your work.

Upon approval of your I-140, you can apply for a green card either through consular processing or adjustment of status, depending on your circumstances. Each of these paths has its own procedures and timelines, and it’s crucial to understand which is best suited to your situation.
