Case Summary:

A consultant from India hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Barely 3 months later, he received notification of case approval. As his case was approved after December 27th, 2016, it was adjudicated based on Matter of Dhanasar, the new framework implemented by the USCIS to determine NIW eligibility.

So what qualified our client for the national interest waiver? For one, his 3 publications had gathered 46 citations at the time of filing. Further, we determined that his work on developing the process chemistry and formulation of vaccines leads to the development of more effective vaccines that better protect Americans against influenza.

Not only did we persuade the USCIS that our client’s work has both substantial merit and national importance, we also established that he is well positioned to advance the field of medicinal chemistry. Further, we determined that on balance, it would be beneficial to the United States to waive the requirements of a job offer and thus of a labor certification.

Several of our client’s peers volunteered their support in the form of recommendation letters. These letters played an important role in confirming the validity of our client’s research. As an example, this is what one of our client’s recommenders stated: “The commercial relevance of [Client’s] work demonstrates its value to public health initiatives. His work impacts the millions of U.S. citizens who receive flu vaccinations every year, and is contributing to the development of improved disease protection for people around the globe.”

We congratulate our client for securing the national interest waiver, and we look forward to helping him file an I-485 application when his priority date becomes current. Till then, we wish him the best as he continues to advance the important field of medicinal chemistry.
