Case Summary:

A year after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on behalf of a postdoctoral fellow from Taiwan, the USCIS approved his case. With a doctoral degree and extensive experience conducting research in the field of materials chemistry, our client was a good fit for the national interest waiver.

By the time we were ready to file our client’s NIW petition, we had gathered a wealth of information related to his research on environmentally friendly techniques for nanocatalyst synthesis, the use of microemulsion as a template for nanoparticle synthesis, sonochemical methods for the synthesis of metallic nanoparticle catalysts, and uranium recovery from seawater. According to Google Scholar, his findings had been cited 359 times at the time of filing, which demonstrated the importance of his 20 publications.

The comprehensive petition packet our legal team put together contained convincing evidence of the benefits of our client’s research to the United States’ environmentally sustainable nuclear power generation. This claim was supported by other experts in the field, several of whom volunteered recommendation letters. These letters were included in our client’s NIW petition and undoubtedly played an important role in securing petition approval. According to one of these experts: “[Client] has firmly established himself as a trusted provider of innovative solutions in this valuable research area, and I am thus confident in my statement that his continued research is invaluable to the nation’s materials, chemical, and nuclear engineering communities.”

We are pleased that our client secured NIW approval, and we wish him the best as he adjusts his status for permanent residence with the help of our D.I.Y. I-485 Packet.
