Client’s Testimonial:

“I am very happy to announce you that I received the notice for I-140 (please see attached) and IT IS APPROVED !!!!!!!!

On July 20th, 2019, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Research fellow in the Field of Biochemistry (Approval Notice).

General Field: Biochemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research fellow

Country of Origin: Lebanon

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: July 20th, 2019

Processing Time: 5 months, 16 days

Case Summary:

An EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval was granted to a biochemistry Lebanon-born research fellow based in Massachusetts. After our careful initial evaluation, we confirmed that our client’s consistent contributions to the field have made him a suitable candidate for I-140 EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver). As our team worked diligently to put together a customized petition, his NIW was approved in just 5.5 months.

We were tasked with proving to the USCIS that our client’s continued work on the application of genetics, molecular biology, cell biology, bioinformatics, yeast, and cancer research helps to better understand cellular regulation and adaptation to environmental conditions. Through advanced scientific understanding on the development of effective and efficient treatments for a wide range of diseases that affect animals, plants, humans, and the environment, our client’s findings holds significant implications for improving public healthcare strategies, environmental stability, and scientific progress regarding several widespread and pervasive diseases in the United States.

We highlighted the 160 citations gathered from his 14 peer-reviewed journal articles and 1 book chapter, and the 5 times he assessed the work of his peers for scientific journals in the petition letter. Above evidence underscored the invaluable nature of our client’s work with protein mechanisms and functions in disease development, as his research has contributed to ongoing international efforts to provide enhanced care for individuals diagnosed with cancer and other conditions.

As part of our services, we helped our client narrow down a list of biochemistry experts who could potentially serve as recommenders. We made sure that these recommenders were familiar with our client’s publications and/or had worked with him. Not long after we supplied our client with the list, he returned with 4 signed letters, one of which contained this strong statement: “[Client]’s work in biochemistry has refined the broader scientific community’s understanding of the most fundamental mechanisms within cellular processes. His work to reveal the structure and function of cellular components has far-reaching consequences for scientists developing treatments for an array of health concerns”.

As our client currently resides in the US, he will embark on the final leg of the green card journey by filing an I-485 application (the other option involves undergoing immigrant visa processing for applicants who are based outside the US). We thank him for also retaining our firm’s I-485 service, and we look forward to helping him secure green card success.
