Case Summary:

A postdoctoral research fellow from Iran approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) for help with his EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. To our delight, the USCIS only spent 3.5 months adjudicating his petition before granting their approval (it usually takes them between 4-9 months on average). Additionally, our client’s petition was adjudicated based on Matter of Dhanasar, the framework for assessing NIW eligibility.

Amongst other things, our client’s comprehensive EB-2 NIW petition packet contained a detailed description of his work which is focused specifically on creating new tools for investigating micro- and nano-colloids, as well as imaging devices for tracking nanoparticle activities. We also highlighted the fact that his specific focus on improving microscopy techniques is contributing to the United States’ health care system, therapeutic development, and national economy. Furthermore, we noted his academic record: a masters and a doctoral degree obtained from leading universities in the US.

The details of his publication record of 3 peer-reviewed journal articles and overall citation count of 57 at the time of filing were also included in the NIW dossier. Moreover, the meritorious nature of our client’s work was also corroborated by several chemical engineering experts via recommendation letters, two of whom wrote:

“…impact of [Client]’s work is such that he has become a vital contributor to the advancement of techniques and applications for digital holographic microscopy.”

“…makes a critical contribution to good of the United States, its people, and our natural environment [sic].

This EB-2 NIW approval is yet another example of our excellent record of helping our clients get one step closer to green card success. We congratulate our client for securing the national interest waiver and thank him for working with our law firm.
