Success Stories: NIW Petition Approved in 4 Months for Indian General Surgeon Based in the United Kingdom


Client’s Testimonial:

“My I-140 (NIW) was approved this week! I was fortunate to come across Chen immigration when I started looking into my options for green card. I quickly realized they are extremely professional and would handle my case at a personal level. Indeed, over the last 1 year they have performed beyond my expectations.

Chen immigration team gave me a free evaluation after assessing my portfolio. Their timing for my case has been impeccable at every step. The lawyers have worked with me as a team. Communication with the whole firm has just been outstanding. I would recommend Chen Immigration extremely highly to all my friends and anyone who is in my shoes and looking into the process for Green card.”

Case Summary:

With a research background that significantly contributes to the United States’ public health by ensuring higher success rates for a range of operative procedures, a recent client of ours—a general surgeon from India—has conducted extensive work on fluorescence image-guided surgery and has established himself as a force to be reckoned with.

Our client has communicated the findings of his extensive studies through an impressive 10 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored) and 1 first-authored book chapter. The significance of his publications is clear based on the 85 times they were cited by his peers from all around the world.

In the EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition that we meticulously prepared for our client, we made sure to include recommendation letters signed by other experts in the field who are well-positioned to discuss the importance of our client’s studies to the field of general surgery, but the US as a whole. Statements contained in two such letters affirmed our arguments:

Most assuredly, [Client] is in a unique position to continue bolstering the field, as he has unparalleled expertise and a unique skillset in surgical research. Rather than specializing in either surgery or research, [he] has taken up both pursuits… While unusual, this is also highly advantageous. It has allowed [him] to secure a position among the most influential members of the field.

“It places [Client] in a small percentage of researchers who continually grow their field through paradigm-shifting work.

Now that his I-140 is approved, our client can move on to the last step in the green card process when his priority date is current. It was a pleasure working with him and we wish him the best as he continues to progress the field of general surgery.
