|Is EB2 National Interest Wavier Application only for Scientists and Researchers?|
I have a Master degree, can I apply for NIW? Also, is National Interest Wavier green card application only for scientists and researchers?
If you have a Master degree, it will depend your qualification for EB2 National Interest Waiver (NIW) application. An advanced degree or exceptional ability is only the statutory requirements for EB2 NIW petition. In addition to meeting the statutory requirements, you also need to prove that granting you permanent residence is in the U.S. national interest.
It is not true that EB2 National Interest Wavier green card petition is only for scientists and researchers. Although a majority of NIW petitioners are researchers in various fields of science, the law does not exclude individuals working in any specific field or profession. In practice, USCIS has granted national interest waiver to engineers, actors, musicians, painters, movie directors, writers, educators, entrepreneurs, and chefs, etc.
