Most people who immigrate to the US to work in organizations at excellent positions do so through the EB-2. The EB-2 is basically a popular green card type for people who want to live and work in the US. People who get this green card are normally those who have advanced degrees and extraordinary skills in their field.
One of the challenging aspects of getting the EB-2 green card is the requirement of a job offer from a US organization and the PERM Labor Certification. To get the PERM Labor Certification, the employer is required to fulfill the complete recruitment requirements and accommodate a US worker on the position as a first priority. The employer can hire a foreign worker only if there no US worker meets the requirements for the position. This can be quite challenging.
The good news is that if you are a medical physicist, you may get the EB-2 green card without a job offer from a US employer and without the PERM Labor Certification. This can be made possible through the National Interest Waiver (NIW). The NIW provides a special exception to people with exceptional abilities whose work can serve the US national interest.
The applicant is required to demonstrate that his/her work can be of greater interest and benefit to the United States. You must also show that you have advanced skills and reputation in your field. The USCIS will take into account your education, previous accomplishments, present activities and advancements, and your intentions for your future career. The authorities will make sure that by allowing you to avail the NIW, they are getting more benefits for the US than simply allowing you to immigrate to the US.
In order to avail the NIW and immigrate to the US as a medical physicist, you should do your research and submit all supporting documents to the USCIS along with your application, so your case can be made stronger.
