THE NATIONAL INTEREST WAIVER PROGRAM: GETTING THE GREEN CARD WITHOUT A LABOR CERTIFICATION.

In instances where the interest of the United States is being served, aliens can seek a National Interest Waiver. The National Interest Waiver classification is a waiver of the Labor Certification Application (PERM) requirement which is a costly and time consuming way to get the green card. The Labor Certification Application process (PER) requires a U.S. employer to apply to the U.S. Department of Labor for a “Labor Certification” to demonstrate that there are no able, willing and qualified U.S. workers who can take the job.
