Request For Evidence (RFE) for National Interest Waiver Petition Is Not Uncommon

Hi William,

I have a very good and
extensive documentation submitted for an EB2 National Interest Waiver (EB2 NIW) petition, but I still get a Request for Evidence (RFE). What I should to do to response the RFE request?


Even with the impressive credentials and extensive documentation submitted for an EB2 National Interest Waiver (EB2 NIW) petition, some petitioners still receive a Request for Evidence (RFE) notice from USCIS prior to the approval of the NIW petition.

While many people panic when their cases receive RFEs, there are situations that RFEs are issued even in good NIW petition case, and these NIW cases are often approved following the proper response to an RFE.

In the RFE response, the petitioner should submit additional expert reference letters, some of these letters should come from independent experts.

Also, if the petitioner has published new articles in journals after the original NIW petition submission, the petitioner should 
include these articles in the NIW response as further proof of qualification for the NIW petition.
