How to Apply for Self Sponsored Green Card?
There are mainly two types of applications for self sponsored green cards:
EB-1 Extraordinary Ability
This category includes persons with Extraordinary Ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics. The applicant must demonstrate extraordinary ability through sustained national or international acclaim.
Also, the applicant must meet at least 3 of the 10 criteria that the law requires, as well as evidence showing that the applicant will continue to work in the expertise upon approval of the green card application. No offer of employment or labor certification is required.
EB-2 National Interest Waiver (NIW)
Some applicants may be eligible for a National Interest Waiver (NIW) to request that the Labor Certification be waived because it is in the interest of the United States. The statute does not define the jobs that qualify for a national interest waiver, however, NIWs are usually granted to those who have contributed to their field significantly, and whose employment in the United States would greatly benefit the nation.
The most common examples are researchers and academicians. An applicant seeking a national interest waiver may self-petition, meaning he does not need an employer to sponsor him.
