Case Summary:

A preliminary evaluation of our client’s credentials convinced North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) that he was a suitable candidate for the national interest waiver. We demonstrated that his contributions to the field of electronic engineering, especially focused on improving semiconductor design technology, are very important to the United States. Despite his petition being issued a Request for Evidence (RFE), our client –– a South Korean resident employed as a principal design engineer –– was granted EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval.

As part of our legal services, we explained in detail why our client should be allowed to conduct his research in the United States. A main reason is that his groundbreaking research on semiconductor circuit design –– a substantial technology of computer and electronic devices –– addresses improvements in performance of devices and directly contribute to the American electronics industry.

We also provided a meticulous presentation of our client’s scholarly contributions: 6 published conference proceedings which had received a significant 153 citations. Moreover, our client had 18 US Patents to his credit ­– a number which portrayed his ingenuity and expertise as an electronic engineer.

Supporting his candidacy for NIW were 5 recommendation letters contributed by other brilliant experts in the field of electronic engineering. According to a distinguished assistant professor:

“Without [Client’s] presence in electrical engineering, the field would be at a considerable disadvantage, for he has been a primary player in recent advancements and will certainly continue in this role. I am certain that the United States would be prudent to support [Client’s] important work in whatever manner possible.”

Needless to say, such words of appreciation offered by these 5 renowned experts established our client as a frontrunner in the field.

Despite the long road to petition approval, we congratulate our client for obtaining the national interest waiver and thank him for retaining our Immigration Visa Processing (IVP) services. We promise him our continued support and look forward to helping him and his family obtain their green cards.
