National Interest Waiver Green Card

Mexican performing artist Rafa Reyes received an approval for his National Interest Waiver Green Card self-petition in October 2020.  We submitted his application in February 2020. We have obtained O-1 visas for Rafa for the past eight years, usually through an agent, as he is self-employed.  Under the National Interest Waiver Green Card classification, a person can self-petition so they do not need an employer to sponsor them. This is a very attractive option for artists and designers who often work for themselves. The National Interest Waiver is an excellent alternative to the Extraordinary Ability Green Card.

“I met Jane in 2012 when I was looking to apply for an O1 visa. She reviewed my case and pointed at all the strengths that she immediately identified. Since our first meeting I felt confident that I was with the right attorney. I’ve gotten three O1 visas through her office and I am happy to continue to work with her team. I am excited that my NIW has been approved. Her team is great, very detail oriented and professional. They share Jane’s commitment to the success of her clients. I am very grateful to my friend who referred me to her, and I am happy to share the great experience that has been working with Jane and her team. Thank you!
