The United States National Interest Waiver (NIW)

The United States National Interest Waiver (NIW) is also known as the EB-2 NIW, which falls under the EB-2 category. It is a special classification of high-skilled immigration. The NIW, or high-tech immigration, is popular because it does not require a labor certification, employer sponsorship, and has more relaxed eligibility criteria compared to the EB-1A category. It also allows for the simultaneous green card application for the whole family. The NIW has lower educational requirements and is not restricted by industry, English proficiency, language, age, or educational background.
