An assistant professor based in Iran hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to prepare and file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. In preparing our client’s petition dossier, we made sure to collect as much information as we could on his work in the field of structural engineering. We determined that our client’s research is focused specifically on studying dynamic and static responses of structures such as concrete dams, and that his findings contribute to the structural stability of civil engineering structures in the United States.
Based on Matter of Dhanasar (the analytical framework for assessing eligibility for “national interest waivers”), the USCIS was looking out for the following information in our client’s petition packet:
- The foreign national’s proposed endeavor have both substantial merit and national importance;
- The foreign national is well positioned to advance the proposed endeavor;
- On balance, it would be beneficial to the United States to waive the job offer and labor certification requirements.
To convince the USCIS that our client deserved to move one step closer to US permanent residency, we detailed the 108 citations collected from his work, the 12 publications in his name, and the 39 times he had judged the work of his peers. We also included words of support contributed by 5 of his peers, one of whom stated: “[Client’s] work in structural and earthquake engineering has produced novel findings. [Client’s] role in these discoveries has been pivotal, and it underscores the importance and value of his continued engagement in this field.”
As we were able to persuade the USCIS that our client’s structural engineering research efforts are contributing to the United States’ economy by ensuring the safety and security of economically vital structures, he was granted the national interest waiver 4 months and 7 days after his case was filed. We congratulate him for surpassing this major milestone in the green card journey, and we wish him the best as he undergoes immigrant visa processing (IVP) from outside the US.
