National Interest Waivers
Who Is Eligible?
If you or a loved one is looking to immigrate to the United States under
the Second Employment Based Preference Category (EB2), it is possible
to be exempted from certain job offer and labor certification requirements
through a National Interest Waiver. The individuals who are eligible for
this exemption must be professionals with advanced degrees or aliens with
Although the standards for being granted a waiver are high, it is possible
to obtain one if you have the correct background and skillset. At USILaw,
we are experienced in helping our clients with all steps of the National
Interest Waiver process. From determining eligibility and preparing the
correct documents to submitting the completed petition in a timely manner, our
immigration lawyers can handle your application from start to finish.
In order to receive a National Interest Waiver, a foreign worker must present:
- Evidence that he or she is working in a field of "substantial intrinsic
merit" that is important to the national interests of the United States.
- Evidence that the benefits of the proposed employment will be national,
rather than simply local, in scope
- Evidence that waiving the labor certification requirements for you would
not negatively affect the wages and working conditions of U.S. workers
in the same field.
