We are excited to have received a swift approval of our most recent National Interest Waiver application for a small interior design operation in New York City. The applicant self-petitioned through his business, which has no employees except for himself, and has low revenues. The applicant, a Hong Kong national already on an E-2 Investor Visa, holds a Master’s degree in Interior Design from the Pratt Institute in New York. We filed the case as an Advanced Degree professional and submitted a very detailed business plan. The applicant has introduced several innovative design schemes which we believe are in the national interest. The case was received by the Immigration Service on March 4, 2022 and approved THREE MONTHS later, on June 2, 2022.
