Case Summary:

An engineer whose specialty lies in the field of mechanical engineering approached North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him build and file a convincing EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) case. Although it took longer than expected (14 months and 7 days), our client was granted the national interest waiver and is now one step closer to a green card.

So what did our client’s EB-2 NIW petition contain? For one, we incorporated information regarding his achievements in the field of mechanical engineering: we noted his 5 peer-reviewed conference and journal articles (1 of them first authored) and the 29 times his work was cited by other researchers.

To further fortify our client’s petition, we carefully went through his comprehensive research summary to better understand his research. Based on what we learned, we persuaded the USCIS that our client’s work directly contributes to the development of regenerative energy initiatives. Additionally, his efforts are contributing to the environment and fossil use reduction in the United States and thus to the country’s greenhouse gas initiatives. Furthermore, his work is revolutionizing the railroad industry, which transports a large portion of American goods.

As additional evidence of the national importance of our client’s research, we included letters of recommendation from other experts working in the field. These letters supported our argument that it would be beneficial to the United States to waive a labor certification, and that our client’s research is important the nation. According to one of them: “Clearly, [Client] is one of the top -performing individuals in his field, making his sustained contributions particularly important.”

We congratulate our client for obtaining NIW approval, and we thank him for trusting us to help him accomplish this goal.
