Case Summary:

An EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval was granted to an associate researcher based in Taiwan. North America Immigration Law Group is specialized in handling employment-based immigration visas, hence, before agreeing to take his case, we thoroughly reviewed his credits and merits. Once we were certain that he was a suitable candidate for the EB-2 visa category, we began preparing a leading NIW case on his behalf to be presented to the USCIS. We incorporated the below-mentioned information in his petition packet:

  • We noted that our client held an M.Eng. degree in electrical engineering and extensive experience in the same field focusing on the use of artificial intelligence and integrated circuit design to better assess biometric signals and improve medical diagnostics and disease recognition. We aimed to prove to the USCIS that his intended research is of great importance because it enables the development of new diagnostic tools that assist in identifying and monitoring cardiovascular diseases, particularly arrhythmias.
  • We detailed the 5 peer-reviewed journal articles as well as 3 peer-reviewed conference articles he published, which altogether garnered 60 citations. Moreover, we underlined that many of his papers have been among the most cited in the field, exhibiting both the originality and authenticity of his methods.
  • Besides, we argued the significance of our client’s work in his field, corroborated by the evidence of peer interest in his research. In addition to his acknowledged expertise in the field, we discussed the 2 times he reviewed the work of peers as a peer-reviewer for highly acclaimed journals. Since only the noble experts in their field are invited to perform this important review work, this peer-review activity proves our client’s elevated standing in the field.
  • We also elaborated on how his work facilitates more accurate medical diagnoses in the United States, which reduces the risk to mortality and public health posed by arrhythmia and other serious conditions, which have been verified by fellow experts, highlighting our client’s research enhancing and maintaining the country’s competitive edge within the technology sector. Therefore, we added five such recommendation letters to our petition packet, and the following excerpt is from one of the attached letters:

“… By developing a signal processing technology for cardiovascular monitoring, [client] has created a system for effectively monitoring at-risk populations to ensure cardiovascular incidents are immediately recognized. In doing so, he reduced the risk of death associated with cardiovascular disease as well as the severity and costs of cardiovascular incidents.”

Finally, we were successful in proving our client’s work on the development of arrhythmia monitoring tools, reducing the number of deaths and serious complications associated with arrhythmias. Thus, permitting him the national interest waiver is in the national interest of the United States. Our client received his EB-2 NIW approval without any RFE, and we would like to thank him for choosing us to file his I-140 application.
