Client’s National Interest Waiver Self-Petition Approved After an Initial Denial!

Client came to us in November 2022 for help with his National Interest Waiver (NIW) self-petition.

He was attempting to apply for an employment-based Green Card without a job offer.

His first National Interest Waiver case was denied.

After the denial, he decided to try again with a second petition.

USCIS then sent him a very lengthy Request for Evidence (RFE) to prove that he was truly qualified for such an extraordinary pathway to a Green Card.

We submitted an extensive 11-page memorandum and more than 300 pages of evidence to persuade USCIS that our client was indeed qualified for the NIW self-petitioner pathway to a Green card.

In our response to USCIS, we convinced them that our client’s proposed endeavor in the U.S. as an Instructional and Curriculum Designer in the medical field has substantial merit and national importance.

We also showed that he is well positioned to advance his proposed endeavor based on his achievements and contributions to the field.

Last, we showed that the U.S. will benefit from waiving the labor certification requirements and approving the NIW petition.

We timely submitted the RFE response on March 23, 2023 and received the approval notification in May 12, 2023!

P.S. Every case is different. Past successes do not guarantee similar future outcomes. Consult a licensed immigration lawyer to discuss your unique situation.
