Miller Mayer attorney Sandra Bruno recently received an immigrant visa petition approval and National Interest Waiver (NIW) in the EB-2 green card category for an expert in the field of cellular and molecular biology from Brazil. This petition’s strong initial filing was approved in less than 13 months without a request for additional evidence from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service. Our client’s recognition, shown by their achievements and contributions to their field, their published original works in prestigious publications and journals in their field, and their work in an area of substantial merit and national importance, 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 United States but who may not have a job offer or who wish to avoid the additional immigration steps related to normal job offer requirements. 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
