Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in Computer Science and many years of experience conducting research in the field of software engineering, our client seemed like he deserved to receive the national interest waiver. After carefully assessing his credentials, we confirmed that we could build a strong EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) case for him and once we had countersigned the retainer agreement, immediately got to work.

As with all our clients, we advised him on the process of selecting recommenders and obtaining their testimonials. Our client returned with six signed letters, all of which strongly advocated for the approval of his NIW petition. According to one of his recommenders: “It is clear that [Client] will continue to perform high-quality research in the field of software engineering. He is a frontline authority in software security and development productivity whose recent years of trailblazing research efforts suggest a future of ongoing breakthroughs.”

Alongside the aforementioned letters were details on our client’s accomplishments in the field. For instance, we noted the 72 citations gathered from his 11 publications as well as the numerous times he had conducted peer reviews for well-known scientific journals and conferences. All of this was supplemented by additional evidence such as our client’s CV, doctoral diploma, evidence of implementation, and other important information.

As we were able to prove that our client’s findings on software development productivity and on creating methods for ensuring that developers write secure software are important to the United States, the USCIS was persuaded to approve his petition. Despite waiting over a year—during which we raised a service request and our client contacted his congressperson— we are pleased that our client is now one step closer to his end of goal of securing a green card. We congratulate him on this victory and wish him the best as he continues to develop secure, robust software.
