Case Summary:

Almost a year after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on behalf of an associate scientist from Singapore, the USCIS approved the case. Although it took longer than the average processing time of 4-9 months, in the end, our hard work and perseverance culminated into a victory. Our meticulous petition which consisted of the following information paved the way toward NIW approval:

  • Our client’s academic profile boasts a sound educational background with bachelor and doctoral degrees obtained from leading universities in Singapore and the United States. Through her research, she has developed original methodologies for asymmetric organocatalysis and photochemistry and has directly contributed to the pharmaceutical industry and public health.
  • We incorporated details of her productive publication record of 6 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) which had been cited 314 times at the time of filing. This impressive citation record is a testimony to the significance of her work in the field of organic chemistry.
  • We also incorporated letters of recommendation signed by several leading intellectuals in the field, all of whom endorsed our client’s continued stay in the country. A professor of chemistry showed his support by stating: “Few other researchers are capable of developing a method that enhances one of the most widely applied chemical reactions, making her continued research essential to the future advancement of our field.”

We are extremely pleased that our hard work led to the national interest waiver. We congratulate our client on this win and wish her the best with the I-485 application.
