EB-2 NIW Visa
What is the process for an EB-2 NIW Immigrant Visa?
EB-2 NIW: Process, Post-USCIS Decision and Government Fees
- Accept the case. If your petition is accepted, USCIS will send you a Form I-797 as an approval notice in the mail.
- Send a Notice of Intent to Deny (NID) or Request for Additional Evidence (RFE) (NOID). The USCIS officer examining your case may ask you to submit further information to back up particular claims made in your application if the officer determines that there is not enough evidence to justify approval. USCIS typically gives applicants up to 84 days to reply to a NOID and an RFE.
- Reject your application without issuing an RFE or a NOID. If this happens, the applicant may ask USCIS to reopen their case or file an appeal with an appeals board.
