Case Summary:

A senior installation engineer from Iran hired North American Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to work on his EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. Our client, whose work focuses specifically on the design of tools and frameworks that aid in the optimization of industrial and engineering processes, has made substantial contributions to the field of engineering analysis.

To create a strong case for the client, we detailed his outstanding record of 6 peer-reviewed journal articles, 4 peer-reviewed conference articles, and 3 conference abstracts. These publications had garnered a total of 81 citations at the time of filing, and have been lauded by some of the most renowned scientists in the field whose recommendation letters formed an important part of the NIW petition.

Our aim was to present a compelling argument that our client’s research serves the national interest. After reviewing and understanding his work, we concluded that his studies have directly contributed to improved efficiency in the oil and gas sector, and have the potential to affect a wide range of industries in the United States from automotive to microelectronics. Regarding the national importance of our client’s work, one of his recommenders stated the following: “By improving efficiency and cost-effectiveness in these processes, [Client] performs a great service for the United States.”

We congratulate our client for obtaining the national interest waiver. As his case was approved after December 27th, 2016, it was adjudicated based on Matter of Dhanasar*. We thank him for working with us and wish him the best as he embarks on the final step towards permanent residency: filing an I-485 application.
