Success Stories: NIW Petition Approved for Iranian Senior Consulting Engineer in Florida in the Field of Electrical Engineering


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much…”

On April 27th, 2017, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Senior Consulting Engineer in the Field of Electrical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Electrical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Senior Consulting Engineer

Country of Origin: Iran

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Florida

Approval Notice Date: April 27th, 2017

Processing Time: 5 months, 16 days

Case Summary:

With a doctoral degree and a firm grasp on power systems operation, protection, and optimization, as well as electricity market analysis, our client made for a suitable EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) candidate.

To prepare a convincing petition, we performed a detailed analysis of our client’s research projects and included the following information in the NIW packet:

  • His publication record of 9 peer-reviewed journal articles (8 of them first-authored) and 4 peer-reviewed conference papers.
  • His citation record found on Google Scholar that stood at 105 citations at the time of filing the petition.
  • A mention of the 15 peer reviews that he has conducted for more than 6 journals.
  • Recommendation letters that endorsed our client’s continued stay in the United States and supported our argument that he has time and again proved his mettle and “produced groundbreaking research…thereby reducing the impact of faults in the power system…”

As North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) was able to persuade the USCIS that our client is contributing to American electric power industries and companies as well as worker protection against electrical injuries, he received notification of NIW approval 5.5 months after the petition was filed. We are pleased to have assisted our client in this important step in the green card process, and we thank him for retaining us to file the I-485 application—the last step towards permanent residency. We join him as he awaits a decision from the USCIS, and we wish him well as he continues to advance the field of electrical engineering.
