Case Summary:

After a long wait of 15 months and 9 days, the EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition of a research assistant specializing in the field of electrical engineering was finally approved. The reason for the prolonged adjudication time was the Request for Evidence (RFE) issued to our client. The team at North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) crafted a strategic response that helped our client overcome the RFE hurdle and ultimately led the way to case approval.

Regarding our client’s NIW petition, our team worked tirelessly to present his credentials and research accolades in a well-structured manner. Among his various achievements, the following were highlighted:

– Our Iran-born client holds a doctoral degree in electrical engineering and has published 17 articles in reputable journals and conferences/workshops. Besides that, he had authored a book chapter and was consistently invited to present at highly acclaimed international conferences.

– A measure of our client’s widespread influence in the field of electrical engineering was evidenced by the 49 citations his publications had garnered. Additionally, he had served as a peer reviewer for 6 conferences and 3 journals.

– We put together a meticulous presentation of our client’s cutting-edge research on the development of robotics systems. The efforts put forth by our client had led to the development of innovative robotics systems and addressed issues in computer memory scheduling. We presented a meaningful argument of how our client’s research directly contributes to the improvement of American computer technology and helps the United States remain a world leader in robotics research and high-tech manufacturing.

– We also incorporated six recommendation letters into his petition packet. These letters strongly supported our case and endorsed approval of our client’s NIW petition. According to one of our client’s recommenders: He has an exceptional record of noteworthy achievements that illustrates his position as an exceptional individual in our field… his continued work is truly indispensable in the ongoing advancement of robotics and pioneering health care technologies.” Similarly, another recommender stated: “[Client] has established himself as a truly superior talent. The United States simply cannot afford to lose an innovative researcher of his caliber.”

These statements established our client as a suitable candidate for the national interest waiver. We are elated that we could be of assistance to our client and that we have helped him move closer to his green card dream. We wish him the very best in all his future endeavors and thank him for working with us.
