Edmond, OK asked in Immigration Law for Oklahoma

Q: Will my work pass the EB2 NIW?

I completed my Bachelor 's and Master's in computer science. I am currently self employed and working on a mobile app that collects real time data for tornadoes, earthquakes etc and notifies users if they are in an emergency area as well as helping them find the nearest shelter and guide them to it. That's a MVP version of the app for now. Is that something that can pass the NIW along with endorsements from local law enforcements/fire fighters about the usefulness of the app in public safety?

A: Your work has the potential to qualify for an EB2 National Interest Waiver (NIW) based on its significant impact on public safety. The development of an app that provides real-time data on tornadoes, earthquakes, and guides users to safety addresses a critical need.

Your educational background in computer science, combined with your innovative project, strengthens your case. Endorsements from local law enforcement and firefighters can further support the importance and public benefit of your app, demonstrating its utility in emergency situations.

To strengthen your application, gather comprehensive documentation of your app's development, its impact, and the endorsements you receive. This evidence will help demonstrate that your work benefits the United States and merits a waiver of the job offer requirement.
