General Field: Molecular Biology

Approval Notice Date: January 30th, 2018

Case Summary:

It took the USCIS nearly 10 months to process our client’s EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. Based on the framework set by Matter of Dhanasar, our client was suitably qualified for the national interest waiver. Thanks to the detailed NIW petition dossier which we prepared and filed on our client’s behalf, he is now one big step closer to US permanent residency.

Besides chronicling our client’s doctoral degree, we included other relevant evidence of our client’s unique skillsets and knowledge. By the time we were ready to file his case, we had amassed an extensive list of his accomplishments. For instance, our client’s 27 publications had collected 1,230 citations. He had also assessed the work of his peers twice. Further, we thoroughly accounted for his research on the molecular mechanisms involved in genetic recombination and repair to develop new treatments for various physiological disorders.

As part of our comprehensive services, we made sure to hone in on our client’s unique skills. We presented sufficient evidence on the benefits of his work to the United States, and emphasized that he is one of only a small handful of researchers who can obtain such impactful research results. To further strengthen our client’s NIW petition, we included recommendation letters signed by other prominent members of the molecular biology research community. These letters discussed our client’s various studies, their significance to the field, and the importance of allowing our client to remain in the US to conduct his research. According to one of our client’s supporters: “The attention that [Client’s] research has received by others highlights his expertise and the saliency of his findings. Based upon his history of quality work, I am confident his continued endeavors will be of similar and greater value to the field of molecular biology.”

We are glad that our meticulous efforts paid off and that our client secured the national interest waiver. This approved NIW petition is one of over 10,000 petitions that we have helped our clients obtain. Our unprecedented insight into how USCIS officers adjudicate I-140 cases has taught us how to build personalized petitions for our clients. We congratulate our client for attaining NIW approval, and we thank him for retaining our I-485 services to help him and his spouse adjust their status for permanent residence.
