Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you so much for all the efforts!”

On November 20th, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for an Environmental Engineer in the field of Environmental Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Environmental Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Environmental Engineer

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Illinois

Approval Notice Date: November 20th, 2023

Processing Time: 7 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Our assiduous team was able to highlight our client’s remarkable capabilities in the environmental engineering field which ultimately earned him a National Interest Waiver approval in just 7 days! This distinguishing category in the NIW framework honors the importance of those committed to enhancing the welfare of others.

Professionals like our client received a Ph.D. in environmental engineering and proposed to continue his research by utilizing data from real-world traffic turbulence studies and investigating emission reduction techniques to develop a sophisticated atmospheric dispersion model that links various traffic conditions with the dispersion and reduction in traffic-related urban air pollution. We were certain, after closely examining his research, that it is of utmost importance to the United States since it advances environmental sustainability initiatives, enhances public health, and improves the global economy.

It was essential for us to underscore the 6 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored) he published in the top journals in his chosen field, affirming the fact that the quality of his research has set him apart from his peers.

In addition, we emphasized that he did not only finish his research in the field and publish his results, but his research has also influenced others in the field. In other words, the 82 citations his work has received attest to its widespread recognition and dependability in the field of environmental engineering.

Our client’s ability to effect beneficial changes is also supported by other expert’s testimonies, confirming that his research is imperative to protect public health and ensure a cleaner and healthier environment for all U.S. citizens. The evidence also shows that his research holds significant value for the U.S. economy, public health, and national environmental sustainability. Moreover, there is a particularly urgent national need for his continuing contributions, considering that emissions from transportation contribute to the formation of smog and deteriorating air quality, exerting a direct negative impact on the health and quality of life for U.S. citizens. Without his continued research, the United States’ efforts directed at developing innovative emissions reduction technologies will be seriously hindered.

Altogether, we were able to build a substantial case for our client, and his case was successfully approved in 7 days. Thanks to the Premium Processing service, which is a paid option offered by the USCIS that allows petitioners to enjoy accelerated adjudication (the case will be processed within 15 days instead of 9-12 months). We would also thank our team and our brilliant client for his knowledge and patience throughout the entire process. We wish that all of his future endeavors will be filled with success.
