Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you. It has been a pleasure working with you and I truly appreciate the level of effort and detail that had gone into preparing the petition documents.”

On April 2th, 2022 and May 13th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) and EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) approval for a Senior Research Associate in the Field of Aerospace Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Aerospace Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Senior Research Associate

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Ohio

Approval Notice Date: April 2th, 2022 (NIW) and May 13th, 2022 (EB-1B)

Processing Time: 12 months, 11 days (NIW) and 9 months, 28 days (EB-1B) (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

The EB1-B or Outstanding Researchers and Professors is a subcategory of priority workers and in order to qualify in this category one needs to show that they possess extraordinary ability in their area of expertise through international recognition. On the other hand, the EB2-NIW or National Interest Waiver is a kind of non-immigrant visa issued to those foreign nationals who can prove that their work is beneficial to the United States of America. The NIW grants a waiver of a permanent job offer and labor certification on approval. So, when we got a client who wanted to file both NIW and subsequently EB1-B petitions, we made sure he understood the journey ahead. Our team explained the process to him, looked into his credentials, and went forward to countersign the retainer agreement. This was then followed by a rigorous search for pieces of evidence to be used in his petition packet.

Going through his academic and professional documents we found the following:

  • He has made substantial contributions to the field of aerospace engineering, specifically, his specialized research on machine learning and robotics within the context of state-of-the-art autonomous systems is of great interest to the United States.
  • His research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding how to improve current machine learning models, specifically in regard to his expertise in genetic fuzzy systems (GFSs).
  • As evidence of this research success, his work has resulted in 18 peer-reviewed scientific articles (13 first-authored), 4 book chapters, and 1 accepted book chapter.
  • Moreover, his work has been cited 116 times in other peer-reviewed journal articles according to Google Scholar.
  • He is also active in the scientific community as a peer reviewer for highly acclaimed journals and has already conducted at least 20 reviews.
  • Furthermore, his study on machine learning for aerospace applications has been recognized and supported by the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the US Department of Transportation.
  • Last but not least, his work has been recognized by 4 other experts in the field who know him through his research projects. All of these experts furnished letters of support for him which our team used in convincing the adjudicating authorities at the USCIS.

Thus, a solid petition laid the necessary groundwork for the success of his NIW as well as EB1-B applications. We are proud of having had the opportunity to represent him and we wish him all the very best in his future endeavors.
