National Interest Waiver Approved for Neuroscience Researcher!

10 February 2020

National Interest Waiver

Perelmuter Law received approval of a National Interest Waiver [NIW] for a Neuroscientist with a specialty in neurodegenerative and movement disorders.

The National Interest Waiver provides applicants the opportunity to gain permanent residency, otherwise known as a “green card,” by showing they have an exceptional ability.

The NIW requires providing evidence of three things:

(1) that the foreign national’s proposed endeavor has both substantial merit and national importance;

(2) that the foreign national is well positioned to advance the proposed endeavor; and

(3) that, on balance, it would be beneficial to the United States to waive the requirements of a job offer and thus of a labor certification.

This unique path to permanent residency is intricate and complex. Each element must be proven with clear, documented evidence.

This case is unique in that the average time to process a NIW has been between 9 and 12 months, but this case was approved in just 6 months! A testament to the hard-work and diligence of the team at Perelmuter Law!
