EB-2 (NIW) - GREEN CARD
The EB-2 National Interest Waiver (NIW) visa allows experienced engineers to obtain a Green Card without the need for a job offer from an American company sponsoring their visa.
The immigration lawyer will prepare and submit your case to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, independently of Labor Certifications. By fulfilling the academic and professional capabilities designated by the USCIS, the engineers indicate that they are a professional of national interest.
