Case Summary:

An associate scientist from Turkey hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help her secure a green card. There are two steps in the green card process: filing an I-140 petition and an I-485 application. When it came to the first step, we determined that our client should file her I-140 petition under EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver). To secure the national interest waiver, we built our client’s case to adhere to Matter of Dhanasar, the analytical framework for assessing eligibility for “national interest waivers”.

After several months of hard work, we put together an NIW petition that highlighted the following:

  • Her Ph.D. in Chemistry and Molecular Sciences.
  • The 18 times her work had been cited by dependent and independent researchers.
  • Her 6 peer-reviewed scientific articles, all of which appeared in well-known scientific journals.
  • Summaries of her research on molecular diagnostics and pathogen surveillance.
  • The significance of her work to the country, most notably to the American economy in general and to America’s dominant position in biotech.

The points above were supported by the four recommendation letters contributed by other prominent chemists in the field. According to one of them: “I strongly believe that retaining such talented individuals as [Client] is in the national interest of the USA. It is my belief that [Client] has a great deal to contribute to the American economy in general and to America’s dominant position in biotech in particular.”

Just 3 months and 17 days after we filed our client’s NIW petition, the USCIS sent her notification of case approval. We would like to thank our client for selecting us to represent her case. The approval of this petition is another example of our excellent record of helping our clients get one step closer to their green card.
