Client’s Testimonial:

“Really appreciate what WeGreen’s help on my green card applications. They are super professional and capable. They complete my application package completely based on my background, and dig out what merit could distinguish me.”

On March 2nd, 2021 and May 13th, 2021, we received another EB2-NIW (National Interest Waiver) and EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Network Hardware Engineer in the Field of Electrical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Electrical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Network Hardware Engineer

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: March 2nd, 2021 (NIW) and May 13th, 2021 (EB-1A)

Processing Time: 7 months, 10 days (NIW) and 7 months (EB-1A)

Case Summary:

When a network hardware engineer from China hired us to help him in filing an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, we glanced through his package, and we scrutinized his research work on studying the signal and power integrity of networking hardware systems to improve the network speed and capacities of data centers, and we deduced that his research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues, including lattice field theories for mass generations, exploration of theories beyond the Standard Model of particle physics, and optimization of computational systems such as machine learning for physics research. Thus, we aimed to persuade USCIS that his research is dedicated to contributing major significance to signal and power integrity, electromagnetic interference, and radio frequency interference research.

The best part is after his NIW case submission to the USCIS, he also decided to retain us to file another petition under the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa category to augment the possibility of achieving the green card sooner. Since many petitioners file more than one petition to expedite the green card process. Therefore, with a success rate of 17,000 approved cases, we were certain of devising these I-140 petitions smoothly.

In this case, we listed his achievements from his Ph.D. in electrical engineering to exhibiting his exceptional record of 27 peer-reviewed scientific articles he published in highly discerning journals and conferences, gathering 307 citations. These citations come from national and international noble researchers from at least 15 countries, implying the significant importance of his work. Besides, he has also completed 22 peer reviews for several top journals. Peer review is an intensive process and it is a strong testament to his skills that he has been asked to work with these highly acclaimed journals.

Moreover, we incorporated five recommendation letters acquired by other noteworthy experts in the field, verifying that he has an extensive and highly unique educational and research background, which has prepared him for his top position of influence in the field. The below-mentioned recommendation has been signed by one of the experts:

“In order to provide these in-demand speed increases, [client’s] research is indispensable. His developments for high-speed interconnects contribute to vastly improved signal quality in network switching devices, thereby advancing the networking speed capabilities available in the United States. Thus, it is evident that his research is amply valuable to the technological interests of the United States.”

Also, his research received funding from both Intel Corporation and the National Science Foundation. These two organizations represent both the private and governmental interest in our client’s research, proving that his innovative work is both highly profitable for private companies and also applicable to technology concerns on a national scale. Thus, we successfully proved to the USCIS that our client not only is an electrical engineer of the greatest stature, but also an invaluable asset to national and global interests in electronics manufacturing.

It is wonderful that our client received both the NIW and EB1A petition approvals less than 2 months apart. We truly thank our client for choosing our diligent law firm to prepare to manage his I-140 applications. We wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors.
