Case Summary:

Based on the Matter of Dhanasar*, the USCIS adjudicated our client’s EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition and gave her their stamp of approval nearly 4.5 months after it was filed. Our client, a staff scientist in Maryland, wanted to secure a green card and contacted North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to represent her NIW case. Our team assessed her biomedical engineering qualifications and considered her a good fit for the NIW category.

Putting the petition together:

We detailed our client’s research projects which focus specifically on ensuring the safety and efficacy of biomedical devices. Furthermore, we included her publication record of 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored) and 5 full-length conference articles (3 of them first-authored), and 28 conference proceeding abstracts, which proved the productive nature of her work. The fact that these publications had been cited 60 times at the time of filing showed that her work is relevant to the domestic and international scientific community. In addition to that, we also noted her important contributions to the field, illustrated by the 40 peer reviews that she had conducted for top notch journals.

Including additional evidence:

Few scientists have so significantly impacted medical practice and science as has [Client], for which she is vital to the medical community of the United States and situated at the top of her field.”

With the help of testimonials like the one mentioned above—all of which were contributed by other experts in the field via recommendation letters— it came as no surprise that our client’s NIW petition was approved. These letters endorsed her petition and proved that her research addresses safety concerns and effectiveness associated with medical devices and therefore, they directly contribute to the public health of the United States.

We congratulate our client on this win, and we thank her for working with us.
