  • Chance for EB2-NIW

    Hi everybody, I have started a postdoc position in the US since March. The contract will have to be signed every year and the position is supposed to last 3 years. Since this year I would like to focus on the project, I will prepare for a package submission to NIW next year. Prior to that, I would like to ask about my chance for this NIW.

    Herewith, my current profile is

    1. PhD in Italy (maximum grade), short-term postdoc in Germany, long-term postdoc in Belgium with a personal grant from a national foundation but suspended for the present position in the US;
    2. 111 citations and half are independent;
    3. 19 papers (all peer-reviewed and international) and some preprints;
    4. Reviewers for several international journals, most of them are closely related to the current field of study in the US.


    Finally, I am also concerned about the main differences between the benefits of EB1 and EB2-NIW. Thank you very much.

    Hi
    I just got my approval notice for my EB2-NIW. I think you definitely have the credentials for getting EB2-NIW, but not EB1. I discussed that a lot with my lawyers and they told me they are seeing cases in which USICS is requesting over two thousands citations for EB1. They did not recommend me to try EB1. As comparison, I have:
    PhD in Genetics, over 5 years of postdoctoral experience and recently employed as a full specialist in major US university.
    24 papers, 268 citations
    Worked as reviewer over 60 times to 14 different journals.

    I used t WeGreened.com and I definitely recommend them. They got me approved smoothy and they have great communication and knowledge. You can send them your CV and they will evaluate for free and give your chances. Try it, it is free. If they accept your case, they return your money if they don't get you approved.

      Your credentials look a lot like mine.

      I just applied and successfully got my green card under the Employment-Based Second Preference National Interest Waiver (EB2-NIW). A bit of my background; I applied as a post-doctoral fellow on my OPT year 3 ( I got the 2-year extension after the first year of OPT was over). I have a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics. I applied without a sponsor or Lawyer so I know that it is possible to do so.


      I wrote a Free ebook that contains all the templates for applying for EB2- NIW. I hope it helps you.
      I know the struggle because as an international student, that was what I thought about towards graduation. I was also able to add my husband as a dependent and we got our green cards at the same time! I started a youtube series (https://youtu.be/B00W9ksjNjw) on the steps so feel free to watch that too for more information. Good luck!!!

      This eBook contains information that will help highly skilled professionals successfully self-petition for their green card under the Employment-Based Second Preference National Interest Waiver (EB2 – NIW) category without sponsors or the help of a lawyer.
