Case Summary:

8 months and 12 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for an Iranian postdoctoral researcher, Nebraska Service Center approved his case. Our client, a well-known professional working in the field of electrical and computer engineering, possessed suitable qualifications to secure the national interest waiver. Our job was to prove it to the USCIS. These are some of the key points we focused on:

  • We highlighted our client’s impressive publication and citation record. At the time of filing, our client had successfully published 18 peer-reviewed conference and journal articles and his work had been cited 34 times. Moreover, our client had conducted peer reviews for 6 journals.
  • Our client’s petition also contained six recommendation letters contributed by his peers. One renowned expert in the field stated: “I have never worked with [Client], but there is no doubt in my mind that he is one of the leading voices in electrical engineering research, particularly that which relates to integrated circuits. As the architect of many of the methods that have made nanoscale ICs more efficient, [Client] is invaluable to our efforts to develop devices that align with modern -day demands for extended battery life, lower power consumption, increased efficiency, and lowered costs. These letters served as testimonials which supported our client’s impressive credentials.
  • To prove that our client deserved to have his petition approved, we presented details of his research including proof of his expertise in developing new circuit boards for application in advanced computer technologies. The development of next generation computer technologies is one of the most important and critical sectors of any nation’s economy, and the development of these technologies is without a doubt extremely important to the United States.  We concluded that our client’s exemplary record and expertise in the field supports the advancement of the American computer technology industry.

Filing the I-140 and I-485 simultaneously:

Nearly 2 months after our client received notification of EB-2 NIW approval, the USCIS approved his I-485 application. As this is the final step in the green card process, this approval meant that our client had successfully become an American permanent resident. The reason why he only waited 2 months for the USCIS to approve his I-485 application is because he chose to file it along with his EB-2 NIW petition. This expedited the process of obtaining a green card. We congratulate him for securing permanent residence and we wish him well as he continues to progress the field of electrical and computer engineering in the United States.
