National Interest Waiver (NIW) applicants belong to one of the two categories of immigrant workers who do not need an employer to sponsor a green card for them. This is also known as the employment based second preference category (E21). The other category is the extraordinary abilities category.
The usual process to get an employment based green card is to be sponsored by an employer who first has to get an approved Labor Certificate application from the Department of Labor. The employer then goes on to file the I-140, Petition for Immigrant Worker.
In the case of National Interest Waiver, there is no need to have an employer to sponsor the applicant, nor does the applicant have to go through the Labor Certification process. The responsibility lies on the applicant to provide enough documentary proof along with a written explanation stating why his/her being granted an immigrant visa is in the best interests of the country - national interest. So a waiver is sought on the basis of the applicant proving to be a candidate who serves the national interest of the U.S.
The applicant has to self-petition with the USCIS for an immigrant visa and it is no easy task to prove eligibility for the visa. There aren't specific guidelines that enumerate the eligibility requirements for a National Interest Waiver.
