Client’s Testimonial:

“It has been a real pleasure working with you, you are fantastic and the case got approved significantly faster than I was anticipated. I really appreciate your help!”

On September 26th, 2019, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Resident in the Field of Internal Medicine (Approval Notice).

General Field: Internal Medicine

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Resident

Country of Origin: Greece

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Pennsylvania

Approval Notice Date: September 26th, 2019

Processing Time: 6 months, 7 days

Case Summary:

A Resident from Greece in the field of Internal Medicine reached out to North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition-the first step to obtaining a green card. We carefully went through his credentials and determined that our client would be a good fit for this category.

We centered the petition upon his research on various human diseases and conditions, including pulmonary vascular disease, early target organ damage in patients with hypertension, the role of hormones in the human body, and the effect of chronic diseases on patients. Evidence was submitted to support our argument that our client’s research is critical to the United States because it helps identify the underlying mechanisms and risk factors associated with health conditions such as hypertension and chronic disease, as well as viable treatment options and preventative methods for improving patient outcomes and overall quality of life.

Furthermore, we included proof of his impressive publication and citation records to demonstrate how much his research is recognized and replied upon by the field of internal medicine. By the time we were ready to file his case, our client has published 18 peer-reviewed journal articles which collected 314 citations. He has also conducted at least 4 peer reviews for distinguished journals.

4 recommendation letters were incorporated into the petition with a view to further strengthening the case. One of the recommenders provided the following comment about our client: “[Client] is an esteemed scientist whose work on various impactful projects has propelled him to the forefront of his field. As one of the most prominent names in internal medicine, [client] has considerably increased contemporary knowledge and understanding of hypertension. His contributions to the field and record of accomplishments make it clear that [client]’s work is of major value and that he is an irreplaceable presence in this area of research.”

Nearly 7 months after we filed the petition for him, the USCIS granted the case approval. Thanks to our experience of securing almost 15,000 I-140 approvals, our customized petition letter successfully convinced the USCIS. As our client has filed the I-485 prior to receiving the NIW approval, he is now only one step away from obtaining the green card. We wish him all the best and thank him for choosing us to represent his case.
