National Interest Waivers for Postdocs 2018-04-12T21:56:27+00:00

At Casseus Law, we have successfully worked with Postdocs in helping to assist them in obtaining their national interest waivers. Postdocs make good national interest waiver candidates based on the fact that they are often able to show that they meet all of the Matter of Dhanasar national interest waiver requirements.

Benefits of National Interest Waivers for Postdocs

There are many benefits of obtaining you green card through a National Interest Waiver for Postdocs.  A national interest waiver allows you to self petition for a green card meaning that you do not need a job offer or an employer to sponsor you for a green card. You have the flexibility to work for whomever you choose after you obtain your green card.  You can obtain a national interest waiver if you are in any status such as F-1, H1-B, J-1, OPT, etc.  If you are a J-1 holder that is subject to the 2 year home rule requirement, you will have to obtain a J-1 waiver, before you can adjust status to that of a permanent resident.
