Success Stories: A Geotechnical E.I.T. from Jordan in Geotechnical Engineering Gets Our Help to Obtain NIW Confirmation


Client’s Testimonial:

“I reached out to NAILG given their excellent reputation in filing and obtaining NIW approvals. Their team is super kind and they never hesitated to address all of my questions and concerns. Their advice was crucial for me especially during difficult times as an immigrant struggling with paperwork and visa. I hired them to file my I-485 package as well. I cannot stress how professional and kind they were during this process. I now obtained my permanent residency in the United States thanks to NAILG. If your profile qualifies for an NIW petition, don’t even waste your time and look for attorneys while NAILG are in the market. I highly recommend them and thank them for all their effort, especially giving expert advice when needed.”

On May 13th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Geotechnical E.I.T. in the Field of Geotechnical Engineering (Approval Notice).

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Geotechnical E.I.T.

Case Summary:

An expert in the field of geotechnical engineering from Jordan came to NAILG seeking help with his NIW(National Interest Waiver) petition. He had completed his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering and had been working as a geotechnical E.I.T. His proposed endeavor was to work on using laboratory testing and numerical simulations of particulate materials to establish a method for soil strengthening with eco-friendly polymers. His work sought to improve soil treatment methods, which are crucial for ensuring the strength of modern infrastructure in the United States and abroad. This is why his work is of great interest to the United States and the world.

His work involves developing new methods for soil strengthening, which makes it directly useful in ensuring the strength of structures like bridges, levees, and buildings. This is why one of his 4 recommendations had the following passage about him:

“[The client] is a geotechnical engineer who researched ways to treat soil more effectively, primarily through biopolymers-fillers composites. His work has led to a greater understanding of the challenges of weak soil properties and how to best address these challenges through soil treatment techniques.”

In total, 4 in 10 U.S. bridges are in need of either repair or replacement, and our client’s research is necessary for ensuring the stability of this improved infrastructure, therefore increasing the longevity of the nation’s bridges, It is due to this that his work has been supported with funding from both the Army Research Office, the national extension of the U.S. Army responsible for the development of novel technologies for army operations, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which is the federal department responsible for protection from domestic safety threats.

On the other hand, he has also completed at least 2 peer reviews and his research has been published in 11 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles (8 of them first-authored) which have been cited a total of 53 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of geotechnical engineering.

With 4 long years of work in this area, our client has established himself as a leading expert in the field. This is what won him the NIW approval without an RFE. We are glad of having worked on his case and having helped him achieve this victory. Our team wishes him the best in all of his future endeavors.
