What is an EB-2 NIW Expert Opinion Letter from ProfVal and how does it add value?

Did you know?

The EB visa category was introduced as part of the bipartisan Immigration Act of 1990. Its signors understood that the U.S. becomes more successful when talented people make 

contributions here.


The approval of your visa makes the USA stronger.

The EB-2 visa is particularly appealing, as it is a permanent work visa based on either an advanced degree or "exceptional ability" that can either be sponsored by an employer or via self-petition. When an individual self-petitions and does not have a job offer from a U.S. employer, they must establish that it is in the best interest of the United States to approve their visa, thus leading the the National Interest (NIW) requirement. 

Almost universally, ProfVal's clients are self-petitioners, thus requiring an EB-2 NIW Expert Opinion Letter. which means that they are seeking to have the labor certification waived because of the importance of the petitioner's endeavor and because "it would be beneficial to the United States to waive the requirements of a job offer, and thus the labor certification” (USCIS).

An EB-2 NIW Expert Opinion Letter thus has multiple goals, including demonstrating whether:​

  • a petitioner's proposed endeavor has both substantial merit and national importance

  • the petitioner is well-positioned to succeed in their endeavor based their exceptional ability

  • it would, on balance, benefit for the United States to waive the requirements of a job offer and thus of a labor certification


Denis, Chief Financial Officer. 

"We got an approval that you guys did the EOL. Without an RFE, straight approval!!!!"

His Expert Opinion Letter demonstrated how his academic degrees from Brazil, decades of progressive experience, recognition from peers, certifications in accounting and finance, and impressive prior successes would lead to job growth, tax revenues, improved skills for U.S. workers, and strategic financial development.
