Case Summary:

An environmental consultant from China hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to guide him through his EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition journey: right from the evaluation of his credentials to presenting a strong case to the USCIS. After digging deep into his profile, we discovered that his work has provided answers to real-world problems in the field of environmental engineering. We proved to the USCIS that our client has been working on solutions to address the challenges posed by toxic and often carcinogenic chemical compounds generated by various industries.

In our client’s NIW petition, we collated considerable evidence to demonstrate to the USCIS that his research initiatives have contributed to the greater good of widespread public health in the US. Furthermore, we incorporated his excellent record of authorship in the field of environmental engineering. At the time of filing, he had already published 5 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored). When we filed his case, his publications had been cited at least 43 times by other researchers around the world, which showcased the current impact of his research in the field.

In order to strengthen our client’s petition, we included recommendations from other influential researchers in his field. According to one of them: “I have found [Client’s] findings to be so impressive and groundbreaking that I cited his first- authored paper… [Client’s] work was a valuable resource for me and my colleagues and using his work improved the overall quality of our own research”.

We are pleased that our effective efforts and coordination paved the way for this NIW petition to be approved by the USCIS in just 2 months and 3 days. We congratulate our client on reaching this milestone in the green card journey, and we thank him for working with our law firm.
