Case Summary:

Our client is an outstanding postdoctoral research scientist in the field of biotechnologies, holding an advanced degree professional by virtue of his Ph.D. in biological sciences, which he acquired from a well-known U.S. University. Back in 2022, our client hired our firm for his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. Our experienced attorneys and team members vigilantly reviewed his background information and designed a petition package most suitable to him.

We successfully claimed that he had employed his impressive research expertise to make several major contributions to the field of biotechnologies. His research field focused on identifying the molecular mechanisms of plant tolerance to extreme environments to design and engineer crops and plants with superior tolerance to those environments. Through the continued implementation and dissemination of his research, the benefits would impact all parts of the nation. In addition, his outstanding work is of great importance because it addresses significant challenges facing agriculture around the world today.

After a complete evaluation, we affirmed that we could help him secure the national interest waiver. Our team gathered all the relevant key points to be emphasized in his petition packet confirming his academic and professional attainments. Here are some of the following details:

  • His work had resulted in a multitude of papers published in top scientific journals with international recognition. He had published 7 peer-reviewed journal articles, which altogether amassed 90 citations, concluding that he has a major influence on other scholars in the field. Besides, he conducted 16 peer reviews for highly acclaimed journals to date. This indicates the significance and impact of his investigations and vast knowledge in this area of study.
  • Due to his research’s national importance, it has in fact been supported with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Energy (DoE), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). His receipt of funding from these high-level government organizations is a testament to the significance of his research to the nation at large.
  • We also submitted all the documents proving his outstanding research ability and strong letters of recommendation from the leading specialists in his field testifying that he was among the top researchers in his field. We submitted his petition with all the relevant evidence in November 2022, and it was approved in March 2023.

Successfully, we proved to the USCIS that our client should be allowed to continue his research in the U.S. as he offers invaluable contributions and on the whole, it would benefit the United States. Thus, USCIS only took 4 months to adjudicate his case wisely and granted the NIW approval. Our team at the North America Immigration Law Group thanks our client for his cordial cooperation throughout the process and for allowing us to be a part of this success story.
