How can I get a National Interest Waiver?

The waiver is generally granted to the individuals whose employment will benefit the nation and its economy. The proposed professional activities in the U.S. must have substantial merit and natianl importance. Professions like doctors, teachers, engeneers are good examples, but any professional activity that can benefit the United States as a country can justify a National Interest Waiver.


The second requirement is that the applicant must be well positioned to advance the proposed endeavor based on his education, professional experience, past achievements in the similar field, and availability of the necessary resources. 


It must also be proven that an applicant will serve the national interest to a substantially greater degree than would an available U.S. worker having the same minimum qualifications. However, if other professionals with compatible qualifications are available in the U.S., but the applicant’s contributions will still greatly benefit the country, a National Interest Waiver may be granted.


National Interest Waiver, if granted, exempts applicants from requiring to obtain a job offer from a U.S. employer and allows  to file a self-petition for a green card.
