General Field: Electrical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Vice President & Chief Technology Officer

Country of Origin: Taiwan

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

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

Approval Notice Date: April 21st, 2017

Processing Time: 14 months, 10 days

Case Summary:

With a doctoral degree in electrical engineering coupled with vast experience in the same field, our client—who currently serves as a company vice president and chief technology officer in Taiwan—seemed like a suitable candidate for EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver). Looking at his credentials, we determined that he fulfilled the criteria for the national interest waiver.

To begin with, we collated the details of our client’s research papers that have been published in high-ranking journals. These publications showcased his extensive studies in mobile networking and energy management by increasing efficiency and optimizing performance through advanced software and algorithm design. These 8 peer-reviewed journal articles and 13 granted patents had been cited 198 times at the time of filing, which proved the relevant nature of his work.

Regarding his research, our client has garnered much praise from other leading experts in the scientific community. Several of them lent their support by contributing recommendation letters which we incorporated into the NIW petition dossier. One recommender, a professor in the United States, wrote: “His innovation, practicality, and depth of knowledge all lend to his consequential work, and he would be an extraordinary asset to this country.”

Another recommender, a professor in Taiwan, wrote: “[Client] uses the latest technology and applies it to address the most urgent problems that prevent usage of available developments. For this reason, he should be enthusiastically supported in his endeavors.”

As our client currently resides in Taiwan, he will undergo IVP (Immigrant Visa Processing)—the final step in the green card process for applicants who are based outside the US. He has retained our IVP services for himself and his dependents, and we look forward to helping them obtain their green cards. Meanwhile, we wish him the best as he continues to conduct impactful research in the field of electrical engineering.
