Every Day is STEM DayPosted on Monday, November 14, 2022
National STEM Day is November 8, but every day is STEM Day at immigration Law Associates. We’ve been especially successful winning STEM approvals in the National Interest Waiver (EB-2) self-sponsorship category. It’s suitable for those in non-profit or government-sponsored research and/or teaching who can show enough impact in their fields. For nationals of retrogressed countries, O-1A or O-1B visas, which have initial 3-year periods of stay, may be extended subsequently year by year with no limit. Yes, O-1B is an “arts” visa but there are many STEM fields that qualify as “arts.” And one thing we’ve learned in our years of experience working with STEM clients (even before STEM was a concept!) is, every STEM field offers a fascinating glimpse into the world around us. We love learning about it.
USCIS lists all the Options for Noncitizen STEM Professionals to Work in the United States on their web site and the government’s official list of STEM fields is here.
