General Field: Mechanical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Assistant

Country of Origin: Bangladesh

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Delaware

Approval Notice Date: November 30th, 2020

Processing Time: 12 months

Case Summary:

An EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval was granted to a Research Assistant based in Delaware. Before initiating an attorney-client relationship, North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) evaluated his credentials to ascertain NIW success. Once we confirmed that we could help him obtain the national interest waiver, our team started accumulating an array of relevant information pertaining to his professional achievements. We chose to focus on the following:

  • Publication Record, Peer-review Experience and Citation Count

Up till the time of filing, our client had amassed 85 citations from the 14 peer-reviewed scientific articles (9 first-authored) he had published. We also noted the times our client assessed the work of his peers. This indicated the significance and impact of his studies in the field of mechanical engineering.

  • Research Description

Our client’s work is focused on developing materials for thermal and mechanical applications and our goal was to prove that his research in this area is of great importance because it provides critical material solutions for issues faced by the computer and electronics industry.

  • Recommendation Letters

Another strategy that we utilized was to include recommendation letters signed by leading experts working in the same field. In this case, our client supplied us with 5 recommendation letters gathered from his peers. Below is a statement excerpted from one of these letters:

“Air travel will continue to be one of the most prominently used forms of transportation in modern society, and so it must become optimized for lowered energy consumption. [Client’s] contributions have been highly significant in this regard, and the United States must continue to support his work.”

Successful Result:

Overall, we convinced the USCIS that our client should be allowed to remain in the US to continue his research. Although a Request for Evidence (RFE) was issued, they eventually approved our client’s petition. The team at North America Immigration Law Group ( would like to thank our client for working with us, and we congratulate him on this milestone.
