Case Summary:

Considered a “valuable resource in the field of electrical engineering”, our client received his I-140 EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval 4 months after filing. His work is focused on the improvement of communications technologies, including wireless transmission, power lines, and massive antenna arrays. His studies are composed of rigorous research on mitigating network interference due to inevitable transceiver device impairments, combining cellular and powerline networks, designing better antenna arrays, and measuring network capacity.

North America Immigration Law Group ( was tasked with presenting specific aspects of our client’s academic portfolio to the USCIS. Our goal was to prove that his research is in the interest of the United States’ electronics industry and military intelligence efforts. Among other things, our presentation was comprised of his publication record of 4 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored) and 10 refereed conference proceedings that had accumulated 73 citations at the time of filing. Moreover, we noted that he had performed 16 peer reviews for leading journal, which further highlighted his active contributions to the field.

Several expert electrical engineers contributed letters of recommendation that acknowledged our client’s achievements. One recommender called our client a driving force for progress in the field,” and another noted that “[Client] has prompted advances in electrical engineering both directly and indirectly, and the strength of his work distinguishes him from typical researchers in the field.”

After 4 months of adjudicating our client’s NIW petition, the USCIS acknowledged the meritorious nature of his research and granted him the national interest waiver. Pleased with our expert services, our client chose to retain us for the last step of the green card process—the I-485 application. We thank our client for trusting us to help him complete the green card journey, and we wish him the best as he continues to progress the field of electrical engineering.
