How to get green cad if you have student visa
Well, if you think you would qualify for an E-2 employment based visa,
then by all means go for it.You'd certainly want to use a good lawyer to
put the petition together and get the National Interest Waiver for you.
Otherwise, there's no way for you to do this on your own. No one here
can tell you if you're qualified for the waiver and the petition based
on your statement that you get good grades and have published some
articles. Aside from the degree, you're also supposed to have at least 5
years experience. However, here is the basic definition of the
category from travel.state.gov:
Employment Second Preference (E2): Professionals Holding Advanced Degrees and Persons of Exceptional Ability
A Second Preference applicant must generally have a labor certification
approved by the Department of Labor. A job offer is required and the
U.S. employer must file an Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker, Form
I-140, on behalf of the applicant. Applicants may apply for an
exemption, known as a National Interest Waiver, from the job offer and
labor certification if the exemption would be in the national interest,
in which case the applicant may file the Immigrant Petition for Alien
Worker, Form I-140, along with evidence of the national interest.
Professionals Holding Advanced Degrees and Persons of Exceptional
Ability receive 28.6 percent of the yearly worldwide limit of
employment-based immigrant visas, plus any unused visas from the
Employment First Preference category.
There are two subgroups within this category:
Professionals holding an advanced degree (beyond a baccalaureate
degree), or a baccalaureate degree and at least five years progressive
experience in the profession.
Persons with exceptional ability in the sciences, arts, or business.
Exceptional ability means having a degree of expertise significantly
above that ordinarily encountered in the sciences, arts, or business.
