The National Interest Waiver (NIW) is available to foreign nationals of exceptional ability in the sciences, arts, or business, and advanced degreed professionals. The National Interest Waiver can let you bypass the labor certification process

Benefits of National Interest Waiver:
  • You do not require a Labor Certification
  • You can file your green card petition with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on your behalf (self-petition)

Requirements for National Interest Waiver:

(A) Person with Exceptional Ability or Advanced Degree Holder

You must be a person with exceptional ability in the sciences, arts, or business, or an advanced degree holder.

1. Person with Exceptional Ability

To be classified as a person with exceptional ability, you must provide documented proof of at least three of the following:

  1. An official academic record showing the alien has a degree, diploma, certificate or similar award from a college, university, school or other institution of learning relating to the area of exceptional ability.
