Miller Mayer immigration attorney Kristal Ozmun recently received an immigrant visa petition approval and national interest waiver in the EB-2 green card category for an expert in the field of restaurant franchising from China. This petition’s strong initial filing was approved without a request for additional evidence from USCIS. Miller Mayer’s filing demonstrated clearly that our client has exceptional ability in their field and that their proposed endeavor in the US is such that it is in the national interest to waive the job offer requirement. Our client’s recognition, shown by their achievements and contributions to their field, 10 years of experience in restaurant franchising and innovation, and their membership in distinguished professional associations, helped to demonstrate that our client is an individual of exceptional ability and that it is in the national interest to waive the normal job offer requirement.

The national interest waiver is an attractive green card option for those who wish to immigrate to the US but who may not have a job offer or who wish to avoid the additional immigration steps related to normal job offer requirement. This visa category, however, has a high standard of evidence compared to other visa options. It is critical to have experienced immigration counsel on your side throughout the immigration process to help achieve your immigration goals. If you would like to discuss whether the national interest waiver green card category may be right for you, or if you’d like to discuss other immigration options, schedule your consultation today with a Miller Mayer attorney at
