Case Summary:

A postdoctoral research associate from Vietnam approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) when he wanted to become a US permanent resident. He knew that our firm had an excellent record of helping our clients accomplish their green card goals (we currently have over 10,000 approved cases in the bag), and that we would work diligently to help him secure EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval.

Not only did we provide our client with useful and comprehensive advice from start to end, we also gathered an array of information pertaining to his achievements in the field of chemistry. We then used the data to build a customized NIW petition that highlighted his impressive abilities as a researcher.

We also proved that our client is one of only a small handful of chemists who can attain such impactful research results, and we demonstrated that his work is of extreme value to the United States. For instance, we thoroughly accounted for his work on developing research methodologies to reveal the molecular basis of neurodegenerative diseases and measure exotic molecules at the single cell level. Further, we utilized recommendation letter signed by other experts in the field of chemistry to support our case. This is what one of our client’s supporters had to say about allowing our client to remain in the US to conduct his research: “As one of the world’s leading supporters of biomedical research and development and as the host of an increasingly elderly population, the United States has a vested interest in ensuring that [Client] is enabled to continue his work to make these conditions a thing of the past.”

To further fortify our client’s NIW petition, we listed the 390 citations gathered from his two dozen publications, and shed light on the 14 times he had assessed the work of his peers.

Nearly 8 months after NAILG filed the personalized NIW petition, the USCIS approved it. We are glad that we were able to prove to the USCIS that our client is an asset to the US and that he deserves the national interest waiver. We congratulate him on this win and thank him for working with us.
