Case Summary:

Holder of an M.B.B.S degree, a pediatric intensivist contacted us to help him in filing an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Before taking his case, we evaluated his educational and professional background and aimed to prepare a convincing case to be represented to USCIS. After an out-and-out evaluation, our team confirmed the veracity of our client’s credentials. Our objective was to persuade the adjudicating authorities of USCIS of our client’s work as a boon to the medical sector in the U.S. Thus, we incorporated the following details in his petition packet:

  • Initially, we detailed his proposed research, which focuses on pediatric pharmacology and pharmacokinetics to improve the safety and efficacy of medications, which has great importance because it provides state-of-the-art guidelines for understanding and administering antimicrobials and other drugs to critically ill children in hospitals across the United States and around the world. We also noted that his research has been supported with funding from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). This funding is reserved for research that elevates the national interest. The NIH’s selection of his work for financial aid signifies commanding support to its quality and merit, as the NIH only supports research that directly enhances the quality of life and reduces illness and disability in the United States.
  • Moreover, we outlined the 19 peer-reviewed journal articles (7 of them first-authored) he had published in no fewer than 5 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals in the field of pediatric critical care medicine, which altogether accumulated 67 citations, indicating that he has a major influence on other scholars’ understanding on the topics relating to the field. Besides, we dissected that many of his writings have been among the most cited in the field, suggesting both the authenticity and relevance of his methods and results. Not only did he have a fantastic publication and citation record but acknowledging his expertise and experience in the field, he has been frequently invited to conduct peer review for elite journals in the field, and he has completed 2 peer reviews to date, further confirming his great standing in his area of research.
  • We also recorded his leading role in ongoing clinical trials involving 18 different sites across the United States, which proves his leadership responsibilities and determination in the field. Considering his publications, ongoing research, and prestigious grants, we were firm that our built case with all these facts and details, will surely lead him to the NIW success. To corroborate further, we added five letters of support, obtained by our client’s fellow experts who were obliged to sign his recommendation letters to establish his invaluable stay in the U.S.

Fortunately, we convinced the USCIS with our petition exhibition, and our client received his NIW approval within 7 months. We truly thank him for trusting the North America Immigration Law Group with his EB-2 NIW case preparation. Going forward, we wish him well as he pursues his proposed research in the United States.
