National Interest Waiver for Taiwanese Musician

National Interest Waiver for a Taiwanese Musician

            Taiwan


Case Type: National Interest Waiver Application

Client’s Nationality: Taiwan

Location: Cleveland, Ohio


BACKGROUND: After holding H-1B status for five years and ten months, our client was about out of status. Though with multiple advanced degrees and a stable career, our client was ready to leave the U.S. when she sought our help. Since the Conservatory wherein our client worked did not sponsor any application, we took a different strategy to enable our client to stay in the U.S. permanently. We applied for her National Interest Waiver (commonly known as NIW) application, which allows self-sponsorship.


Date of Application: June 18, 2012

Date of Approval: September 17, 2012


CHALLENGES:

1). Time was of the essence.

2). The Conservatory did not sponsor this application.


WITH OUR HELP, our client’s National Interest Waiver was approved in three months and received work authorization immediately. Within three months after her approval, she also received green card.


NOW, our client is pursuing her passion, teaching and performing at a music conservatory in the U.S.


 CHALLENGE: We were retained at a desperate moment and chose this strategy. We helped prove that direct admission (without employment offer and labor certification) of our client into the rank of permanent resident status would benefit the United States of America. This special category of employment-based immigration is also called EB-2. Be really wary of whether your particular trade or professional would necessarily allow you to apply for National Interest Waiver. Please consult a reliable immigration lawyer, before proceeding.
