The process of applying for a green card through the EB2NI category from outside the US
If you’re a professional or have special skills that the US needs, you can apply for a green card from your home country through the EB2NI category. Here are the steps:
Step 1: Submit an immigrant petition
Submit your home I-140 petition letter and all supporting documents to USCIS.
Step 2: USCIS notifies the National Visa Center (NVC)
Once USCIS approves your petition, they’ll inform the NVC in your home country. The NVC will then contact you with a list of required documents and details on paying your processing fees and scheduling your interview.
Step 3: Consular processing
Since you live outside the US, you’ll need to go through consular processing. This means going to the US consulate in your home country for your interview. Take all the required original documents with you.
Step 4: Interview
During the interview, they’ll ask about your plans in the US. If you get approved, you’ll get a stamp on your passport that allows you to travel to the US.
Step 5: Receive your green card
Once you enter the US, you’ll receive your green card in the mail. Remember, there’s a lot of backlog, so be patient. Unfortunately, you can’t expedite the process, so you’ll have to wait. If you need help, you can seek services from EB-2 NIW Help. However, ultimately, the decision to approve your petition lies with USCIS.
