New National Interest Waiver (NIW) Standard under Dhanasar

NIW has been one of popular ways to obtain an employment-based green card without a job offer and labor certification process. Until December 27, 2016, NIW petitions have been evaluated by USCIS under the NYSDOT standard decided by the Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) in 1998. AAO'S new decision of Matter of Dhanasar vacated NYSDOT and laid out a new standard for an EB2 NIW petition.
