Pilots Can Receive a Green card without a Job Offer

A unique opportunity for pilots from every edge of the globe to acquire U.S. lawful residency (Green Card) has emerged. Currently there is an increasing scarcity of pilots in the United States, which will become severe by 2023. As the demand for professional pilots continues to increase, foreign pilots holding the appropriate credentials may now request a green card for themselves as well as their family members via the EB-2 National Interest Waiver Program. The most profound part of this program is that no job offer is required. A qualified pilot will be granted lawful permanent residency on his own merit.

A successful candidate should establish the following criteria:

  1. They will be undertaking an endeavor that has both substantial merit and national importance.
  2. They are well situated to advance the proposed venture; and
  3. It would be beneficial to the United States to waive the requirements of a job offer, and therefore no labor certification would be required.

Numerous factors add to the pilot scarcity circumstance in the United States. Originally, it began with restrictive hiring methods, however the circumstance intensified as the sector found it troublesome to replace their ageing pilot labor force in view of the profession's considerably stringent experience demand.

In this environment, foreign pilots might find it simpler to receive permanet residency (Green Card) in the United States by means of a well-established program, normally not utilized for pilots; the EB-2 National Interest Waiver Program.

A request under the EB-2 National Interest Waiver program generally takes about 8-10 months to process. Upon being approved for the EB-2 application, the candidate, as well as his household will be allowed to to enter the U.S. and receive a green card to reside permanently in the country upon entrance in the U.S.

According to immigration attorney Moses Apsan (past President of the Federal Bar Association, New Jersey Chapter (1997-2002) "The unprecedented increasing demand for pilots in the US has actually made it, in theory, easier for foreign pilots to satisfy the criteria for the program. Simply put, as long as a candidate can show that he/she has the abilities, experience, and also education the US needs to tackle its pilot shortage trouble, the candidate is anticipated to get approved for a green card without initial requiring that the pilot obtains for a job offer.

To graphically describe the pilot shortage circumstance in the United States, reports forecast that there will certainly be a scarcity of over 12,000 pilots by 2023 and the nation will need an overall of 65,000 new pilots in the following one decade to fulfill the demand for air travel.
