On April 7th, 2017, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Senior Lecturer in the Field of Electrical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Electrical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Senior Lecturer

Country of Origin: Iran

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Outside the US

Approval Notice Date: April 7th, 2017

Processing Time: 12 months, 22 days

Case Summary:

A senior lecturer based in Iran hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him obtain the national interest waiver. As our client’s EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition was adjudicated based on the Matter of Dhanasar, it is clear that his work has both substantial merit and national importance, he is well-positioned to advance the field of electrical engineering, and it is beneficial to the US to waive the requirements of a job offer and thus of a labor certificate.

Our team worked diligently to put together a strong NIW petition for our client, and amongst other things, these are some of the key points:

  • We noted the 78 citations gathered from his 40 publications.
  • We highlighted the fact that our client has conducted 260 peer reviews for 20 different scientific journals.
  • Thanks to the comprehensive research summary that our client provided us, we were able to determine that his work is specifically focused on the designed optimizations and development of software improvements to power transformers and advancements in superconductors.
  • We carefully explained to the USCIS that our client’s findings directly contribute to green energy initiatives and to the strengthening of more efficient energy production. We also proved that these research efforts are contributing to the United States’ energy independence and its ability to realize national and international green energy initiatives.

Although it took the USCIS longer than usual to adjudicate our client’s NIW petition, we are nonetheless pleased that they approved it (our client’s petition was transferred once and we raised a service request on his behalf). Overall, our client waited 12 months and 22 days to receive notification of case approval, and he is finally ready to undergo immigrant visa processing (IVP). IVP is the final step in the green card process for applicants living outside the US (those living in the country will file an I-485 application). We thank our client for retaining our IVP services, and we look forward to helping him and his dependents obtain their green cards.
