There are few types of immigrant visas where an applicant is the Self -Petitioner of his own employment Visa.
NIW (National Interest Waiver) may be the preferred choice when petitioner is a young researcher with noticeable scientific qualifications & impressive research achievements.
Because each research category & scientific field is different, applying the exact same criteria in investigation of an individual's qualification may be erroneous, although, USCIS uses certain standards to assess the eligibility.
When assessing an NIW candidate, its important to know the applicant's background accurately. Publications, citations & peer reviews are important, but not always outcome determinative. To learn more contact our office today.
