Case Summary:

A postdoctoral research associate from Egypt hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) on his behalf. Although he had strong credentials, he needed our help to refine his presentation and present a convincing case to the USCIS.

The comprehensive petition packet our legal team put together contained convincing evidence of the benefits of our client’s research to the United States. Essentially, we persuaded the USCIS that our client’s research in agricultural science is of great importance as it aids in bolstering food security, and also in achieving such important goals as supporting farm operations, strengthening the economy, and reducing pesticide use.

Furthermore, we accounted for the 51 citations gathered from our client’s work as well as the 8 times he judged the work of his peers. We also noted the 6 peer-reviewed journal articles (one of them first-authored) and 1 book chapter to his name, all of which were well-received by the agricultural science research community. According to one of our client’s peers: “[Client] provided the United States agricultural community with a viable replacement for pesticides. [Client’s] research has also proven incredibly useful to the nation at large, and as such, the United States would suffer without his work, particularly in the area of agriculture.”

Merely 70 days after we filed our client’s NIW petition, we received notification of case approval (it usually takes the USCIS between 4-9 months to adjudicate I-140 cases). We are glad that our client has surpassed this first, significant hurdle in the green card process, and we thank him for retaining us to help him and his dependent with their I-485 applications.
