U.S. National Interest Waiver Attorney
An employment-based green card can be a long process and generally requires a employer for sponsorship, a job offer, labor certification and petitions. Fortunately, the National Interest Waiver (NIW) green card allows the applicant to circumvent both the PERM Labor Certification and sponsorship requirements by self-petitioning.

A Regular EB-2 is very similar to an EB-3, you will need an employer to sponsor your employment based green card and you will need to obtain a PERM Labor Certification before you can apply for Form I-140. With the EB-2 NIW, you can sponsor yourself and can circumvent the Labor Certification process entirely, apply for Form I-140 directly.
To satisfy the EB-2 requirements you need either a Master’s or a Bachelor’s and 5 years of progressive experience. The experience must be in the specialty or filed you are apply for and the degree must be related to the specialty or skill you are applying under.
No, you only need to meet the requirements for one of the two EB-2 criteria. However, having both can be beneficial to your case.
Yes, you can still apply for an NIW even if you haven’t published any work. The published article requirement is just one out of the many criteria. If you have the academic qualification and/or years of industry experience, you could still qualify.
Yes, you can. If you qualify for both, having two pending applications can work in your benefit as you will have 2 chances for a green card approval.
