Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you so much. I have received the approval letter in the mail.”

On April 9th, 2018, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Associate in the Field of Biomedicine (Approval Notice).

General Field: Biomedicine

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Associate

Country of Origin: Taiwan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Minnesota

Approval Notice Date: April 9th, 2018

Processing Time:  7 months, 22 days

Case Summary:

A postdoctoral associate from Taiwan hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him prepare and file a customized EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. Before taking on his case, we carefully went through his credentials to be sure that he met all the requirements set by Matter of Dhanasar (the framework used to determine NIW eligibility).

Once we confirmed that our client was a good fit for NIW, we got to work gathering a wealth of information pertaining to his work in the field of biomedicine. We discussed his research on the development of therapeutic targets for treating metabolic diseases and emphasized the significance of his work to the United States.

Further, we included recommendation letters signed by other influential members of the biomedicine research community. These experts advocated for the approval of our client’s petition and supported our argument that our client should be allowed to remain in the US to continue his research. According to one of these recommenders, our client “is an extremely valuable scientist whose unique skills have greatly benefitted the community.”

The comprehensive NIW petition packet our team put together contained convincing evidence of the benefits of our client’s research to the United States. It also detailed his citation count (208 citations) and publication record (16 articles) at the time of filing. Further, we noted the 2 peer reviews our client conducted for a well-known scientific journal.

With over 10,000 approved cases, there is no denying that our firm knows just what to do to get clients closer to green card success. Not just that, we are very familiar with USCIS adjudication trends and offer our clients up-to-date advice on a variety of I-140 issues.

We thank our client for working with us and wish him the best as he adjusts his status for permanent residence by filing an I-485 application.
