Case Summary:

A Vietnamese postdoctoral research fellow based in New Jersey who is working in the field of biomedical science hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him obtain EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval. Despite his impressive research background and various accomplishments in the field, he needed our expertise to present a customized EB-2 NIW case to the USCIS, and prove to them that his research on the mechanisms of and treatments for major respiratory and circulatory conditions is critical to the United States. His major findings benefit as many as ten millions Americans suffering from related diseases such as lymphoedema, pulmonary edema, and other illnesses caused by fluid imbalance.

We put together our client’s NIW petition by presenting evidence to support the argument that he is an exceptional researcher in the field of biomedical science. In the petition dossier, we informed the USCIS that our client’s 3 publications were cited 17 times. Furthermore, we concluded that his work is significantly beneficial because it provides us with viable alternatives to pursue techniques for working around the issues of alleviating acute respiratory distress syndrome, or ARDS. Six letters of recommendation were also included to accredit his contributions to the field. One of the recommenders noted: “Because of [Client]’s findings, scientists are now able to move ahead in the creation of treatments for ARDS […]. Therefore, I can confidently state that [Client] has profoundly impacted biomedical research.”

As we have successfully petitioned over 10,000 I-140 cases, we have unprecedented insight into what the USCIS is looking for when adjudicating petitions. This allowed us to confidently respond to the Request for Evidence (RFE) our client’s NIW petition received, and this persuaded the USCIS that our client truly is an asset to the US. We congratulate our client for overcoming this significant challenge in the green card process, and we thank him for retaining our I-485 services to help him adjust his status for permanent residence.
