National Interest Waiver Green Card - Silmi Law Firm

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

Your spouse and children will also be able to file as part of your NIW green card application process, which will give them the opportunity to receive their own green card.


The processing time for the NIW green cards usually varies from 3-9 months. This mostly depends on the service center and the adjudicating officer assigned by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to each petition. Therefore, processing time usually varies from case to case.


“Substantial merit” is used to represent endeavors that have made a positive impact in their expertise. The greater the impact the more likelihood of approval for your NIW.
