IMMIGRATION

[EB2(NIW)]  [EB2(NIW)] NIW Petition Approved without RFE for Entrepreneur 06/17/2020

Our client is a foreign entrepreneur who has been in the field of cosmetics for many years having held various major positions at world-renowned brands. Song Law Firm prepared her NIW green card case. One of the benefits of an NIW for foreign entrepreneurs is that you do not have to obtain a labor certification, which will not only significantly shorten the processing period but also does not require a sponsorship from a U.S. employer. Previously, it was mandatory for a foreign entrepreneur to demonstrate that the proposed endeavor’s benefit would be “national in scope.” With a new precedent called Matter of Dhanasar, a foreign entrepreneur will now just need to show that the proposed endeavor “has significant potential to employ U.S. workers and/or has substantial positive economic impacts” without much emphasis on the geographical impact of the benefit. In addition, the new precedent no longer requires proof showing that the entrepreneurial endeavor is likely to succeed; you only need to show that the foreign entrepreneur is well-positioned to advance his/her proposed endeavor. Accordingly, we prepared convincing evidence package including a detailed business plan containing industry research and prospect, as well as our client’s past achievements and current status. This case was approved without an RFE. Congratulations!
