Employment-Based Immigration: Second Preference EB-2

About the National Interest Waiver

The EB-2 National Interest Waiver policy is a way for certain foreign nationals to obtain a green card without going through the labor certification process. It is intended for individuals who possess exceptional abilities in the arts, sciences, or business, or who have an advanced degree, and whose work in their field will significantly benefit the United States. The individual must also demonstrate that the national interest of the United States would be adversely affected if a labor certification were required for the alien.

You may be eligible for an employment-based, second preference visa if you are a member of the professions holding an advanced degree or its equivalent, or a person who has exceptional ability. Below are the occupational categories and requirements:


  • Official academic record showing that you have a degree, diploma, certificate, or similar award from a college, university, school, or other institution of learning relating to your area of exceptional ability
  • Letters from current or former employers documenting at least 10 years of full-time experience in your occupation
  • A license to practice your profession or certification for your profession or occupation
  • Evidence that you have commanded a salary or other remuneration for services that demonstrates your exceptional ability
  • Membership in a professional association(s)
  • Recognition for your achievements and significant contributions to your industry or field by your peers, government entities, professional or business organizations
  • Other comparable evidence of eligibility is also acceptable.

Factors USCIS Considers for National Interest Waiver

  • The proposed endeavor has both substantial merit and national importance.
  • You are well positioned to advance the proposed endeavor.
  • On balance, it would be beneficial to the United States to waive the requirements of a job offer, and thus the labor certification.
