Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism and ample experience in the important field of environmental science, an associate faculty member from Nepal seemed like a good fit for the national interest waiver. Before taking on his case, we carefully went through his credentials to be sure that he met the EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) requirements set by Matter of Dhanasar.

Building a personalized NIW petition:

We meticulously curated an array of information pertaining to our client’s work in the field of environmental science and incorporated it into a well-thought-out NIW petition dossier. For instance, we highlighted our client’s work on environmental preservation and demonstrated that research in this area is of great importance because it enables governments and non-government organizations to more effectively protect environments and households from threats including air pollution. We also listed our client’s research accomplishments such as the 18 citations gathered from his 3 publications as well as the 4 peer reviews he conducted for a couple of prominent scientific journals.

In our effort to strengthen the NIW petition further, we included six recommendation letters signed by other well-known environmental scientists. These letters played an important role in proving to the USCIS that our client’s research is important not just to the United States but the field as a whole. According to one of these experts, our client’s work is “not only reliable but is also important to the progress of the field of environmental science and is worthy of examination.” Another expert noted that “[Client] has worked hard to ensure the success of American conservation efforts.”

The approval of this NIW petition is yet another example of our firm’s dedication towards helping all our clients move closer to green card success. With over 10,000 certified approved I-140 cases, there is no denying that we are very familiar with USCIS adjudication trends and have insight into how the officers adjudicate petitions. Not just that, our years of experience proves that no matter how unique the client’s background is, we will very likely successfully petition the case.

We congratulate our client for securing NIW approval and we wish him the best as he adjusts his status for permanent residence.
