Unlock Your American Dream

EB-2 NIW Pathway for Commercial Pilots

The EB-2 National Interest Waiver (NIW) Visa for U.S. Green Card application offers a unique opportunity for you to contribute your aviation expertise to the U.S. and become a permanent resident.

  • Exceptional Ability: Pilots with a proven record of exceptional ability in the aviation field.

  • Advanced Degree Professionals: Pilots holding advanced degrees or their equivalent in relevant fields.

  • National Interest: Your employment must be seen as benefiting the U.S. national interest significantly.​​

​At least 3 of the following items must be fulfilled:

  1. Degree, diploma, certificate relating to the aviation industry.

  2. 10 years full-time work experience as a pilot.
