Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group was hired to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for a research fellow from Nepal. We evaluated his proposed research work in the field of materials science before preparing his case. We assessed that he wants to continue his work on designing and developing coatings for civilian and military applications like solar panels, drones, and electro-optic sensors to promote renewable energy and enhance American military technology. His research work in the field is of great importance as it advances hydrophobic coatings used to protect surfaces like solar panels. The reliance of the planet on fossil fuels has led to the dramatic warming of the Earth’s atmosphere and his work in this area has critical implications for the ongoing fight against climate change.

Additionally, we presented our client’s well-off research work that has influenced his peers and colleagues of the same field. He had already gained 319 citations according to Google Scholar, demonstrating that his publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of materials science. We also noted the 8 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored) and 1 international patent application he published, musing his peers’ recognition of the value of his research work. He has published in no fewer than five highly ranked peer-reviewed journals. Moreover, we observed that our client is a vital member of the scientific community as a peer reviewer and conducted 4 peer reviews for elite journals to date, highlighting his knowledge and expertise in the field.

Moving ahead, we endorsed his built petition by including four recommendation letters that he acquired from his fellow superiors in the field. We attached all the testimonies and submitted them to the USCIS, validating that our client is a substantial resource to the United States. One of the recommenders worded the below-mentioned excerpt:

“[Our client’s] works, provide inherent benefits for the United States economy, since his projects support growing and thriving U.S. industries.”

USCIS was successfully persuaded that our client’s work is a critical component of enabling the American military to reduce its presence abroad while still retaining a credible deterrence threat and it is in the best interest of the nation to support the continuation of his work. Finally, his EB-2 NIW petition got approved, and with delight, our team would like to congratulate him on this significant milestone. Also, we thank him for choosing us for his case preparation.
