Applying from outside the USA
Thank you so much for all your efforts on your website, it is really helpful ,after I saw your site I decided to go forward and self petition
but when I contacted a lawyer I got confused .My intention was to apply for the Eb1a but they advised me to apply for NIW .I am attaching my CV it has my publications under published work heading.
As for citations I got citations 6 times.And I have other reference letters apart from the attached ones.
My question is which do you think will suit me better Eb1a or NIW? ;as i don’t know if my field of “Image Watermarking for Security Applications” will be eligible for NIW; my other question is can I apply from outside the USA as I am from Egypt and what are my chances based on that?
Again Thank You So Much for all the help 🙂
In our opinion NIW may be more appropriate. EB1A may be possible but that would require significantly more evidence than you have attached. In either case, lot depends on how the petition and evidence are presented.
Your recommendation letters need to be written appropriate to the right kind of petition.
For examples you can see self-petition packets as in our website.
Here are our thoughts on the area of your work. It sound like your research area could be justified under NIW. In general most advanced research activities could be argued to be in the US national interest.
If you plan to apply from abroad, it is possible. You should fill you i-140 application differently and use the consular processing approach.Sincerely
