Success Story: EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the field of Computer Science

Recently, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for a Computer Scientist (Approval Notice)

General Field: Computer Science
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher
National Origin: India
Service Center: Texas
Processing Time: 120 days

Case Summary:

In this specific case, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates set to prove that this client qualified for a National Interest Waiver based on the intrinsic value and vast scope of his work. In order to prove the substantial intrinsic merit of our client’s work, we emphasized how his work impacted a number of different fields, including life sciences, medicine and biodefense.

In order to document that our client’s work was both intrinsic in value and profitable to the whole nation, we needed to provide experts both in his field and other fields who acknowledged that they highly benefited from our client’s work. To accomplish this lofty goal, we drafted for the experts to review, edit and sign on behalf of our client 8 detailed and well-evidenced recommendation letters. To increase the value of the experts’ opinions, 5 were independent advisors who did not know our client but attested to his influence in their field.

We, at Chen Immigration Law Associates, view each case individually to find the right combination of strengths each client has that will ensure their case is approved. In this particular case, we stressed the combination of our client’s unique skills and extensive experience in computer engineering and through proven strategies; we argued that our client’s substitution would adversely affect the national interest of the United States.

Additionally, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates, understand AAO rulings and how to cite them to assure our client’s success. Through our research, we found that more than 80 prestigious universities, companies, and government laboratories in at least 20 countries from across the world had been influenced by our clients work and thus, through our diligent efforts and tried methods we reasoned to get another NIW approved.

Using this proven strategy, while correctly articulating the importance surrounding this client’s valued work, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates were able to secure approval for this petition on January 17, 2013
