Accomplishment-based options for obtaining permanent residency in the United States are desirable for those who do not have employers willing to sponsor them or who would rather find a route faster than family- or employment-based options.
"Extraordinary ability," "outstanding researchers," and "national interest waivers" are terms of art that are used when someone is seeking permanent residency based on one's accomplishments and reputation. What do these terms mean? What are their requirements? What evidence is required? Which one is the most appropriate for you?
Generally, individuals must demonstrate their level of accomplishment in their respective fields through a number of criteria including reference letters, awards, publications, speaking engagements, and membership in selective organizations.
