Case Summary:

All the below-mentioned details rationally woven in our client’s I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition packet acquired him the most awaited case approval from the USCIS. We are pleased to support him and lead him to a major step closer to getting his green card.

When our client, a postdoctoral research associate from Bangladesh researching in the field of civil engineering approached North America Immigration Law Group to put together a persuasive EB-2 National Interest Waiver petition on his behalf, we made sure to include the noteworthy information in his petition packet, demonstrating that he must continue his research on developing the mathematical models and solution algorithms that improve “factory-in-a-box” supply chain systems, optimize maritime transport, and facilitate efficient resource allocation for the reduction of traffic accidents, which is undoubtedly an endeavor with substantial merit since it minimizes the supply chain disruptions, increasing the efficiency of maritime shipping, and ensuring the safety of transportation infrastructure.

Moreover, we noted that he has concocted an impressive authorship record in his chosen field, resulting in 15 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored), 2 first-authored conference publications, and 3 technical reports published in no fewer than 4 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals. Also, his publications collected a total of 127 citations, hence proving that he is reaching the national interest by helping U.S. supply chains. Besides, he has completed at least 21 reviews to date. Given that only the most highly esteemed researchers in the field are invited to evaluate the work of their peers, especially in notable journals, therefore, he is seen as very knowledgeable in the field.

Furthermore, having obtained a Ph.D. in civil engineering, his proposed endeavor is of great importance according to the Maritime Industry Knowledge Centre, “shipping is the lifeblood of the global economy,” responsible for the transportation and carriage of approximately 90% of global trade. His research is thus critical at an international level.

In addition, we incorporated 4 testimonials obtained by our client from other experts in his field, to support our client’s research. One of his recommenders stated the following:

“Not only is [client’s] research increasing the profitability of one of the largest industries in the world, then, but his holistic profitability models offer essential information for the United States to use to increase its competitiveness in this market. Indeed, his innovative multidisciplinary approach to problems in civil engineering, as well as his successful application of these methods to one of the top global industries, make it clear that he is a civil engineer of particular renown.”

Fortunately, our client achieved his NIW approval 10 months after we filed his case. Impressed by our service, he also retained us for his I-485 application, and the next best news we got was his I-485 approval 7 months later his NIW approval. We genuinely congratulate him and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.
