On this episode of the Immigration Law for Tech Startups podcast, I am joined by Nadia Zaidi to discuss EB-2 second preference employment-based immigrant visa I-140 petition. The petition allows individuals whose work is in the national interest to skip the PERM process and obtain an EB-2NIW green card.
This type of green card is unique because it does not require the applicant to be extraordinary, making it a great option for individuals born in India or China. This pathway has opened more doors and has become much more accessible. Tune in to learn more about this exciting opportunity.
In this episode, you’ll hear about:
- What is the EB-2NIW?
- Navigating the green card process
- Proving extraordinary ability
- The three prongs of EB-2
- Tips for imagining the impact of your work in the future
