Supporting Documents for EB2 National Interest Waiver Petition for Entrepreneurs

Hi William:

I am a successful foreign entrepreneur. I heard the EB2 National Interest Waiver immigrant visa category for foreign entrepreneurs. Please let me know how to present supporting documents for this kind of Green Card application based on EB2 National Interest Waiver?


For foreign entrepreneurs to file EB2 National Interest Waiver (EB2 NIW) petitions, the petition should focus on how to prove the past achievements and entrepreneur activities in the United States, and have provides jobs for U.S. citizens. 

Thus, the alien applicant should have a successful track record as a entrepreneur for the EB2 National Interest Waiver eligibility. The EB2 National Interest Waiver petition for a foreign entrepreneur should not only focus on the "potential" U.S. national interests in future. 

The EB2 NIW petitioner for a foreign entrepreneur can have a variety of ways to prove a particular business achievement, including:

  • evidence of the success of foreign enterprises;
  • developed business plan and can prove that the company has reached the set goals;
  • the current number of employees;
  • business contract or transaction;
  • media attention for the business;
  • detailed business plan in the United States.
