Success Stories: A Technical Program Manager From Iran Obtained the EB-2 NIW Petition Approval with NAILG’s Full Support


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much. It was a great pleasure working with your firm.”

On December 17th, 2020, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Technical Program Manager in the Field of Biostatistics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Biostatistics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Technical Program Manager

Country of Origin: Iran

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New York

Approval Notice Date: December 17th, 2020

Processing Time: 12 months, 12 days

Case Summary:

With an M.Sc. degree in health research methodology, a technical program manager from Iran approached North America Immigration Law Group to assist her in documenting an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for her. While composing our client’s petition packet, we studied her initiated research on applying interdisciplinary and multi-method approaches to understanding specific aspects of change management in healthcare, and on the creation of comprehensive guidelines for controlling asthma in adolescents and adults. Her work in this area seems of great importance because it focuses on improving healthcare methods and procedures for a variety of conditions and diseases.

After evaluating her credentials, we featured as many details as we could in our EB-2 petition case to the adjudicating panel and to establish that she deserved the national interest waiver. Here are some of the details that we included:

Publication, Citation Count, and Peer- Review Experience:

  • We noted that her publications have garnered 17 citations from the 3 peer-reviewed journal articles and 1 conference article, thereby demonstrating that there exists widespread interest in her findings and ideas. The citation record indicates a demonstrated impact on the field that has well-positioned her to continue to advance the endeavor.

Recommendation Letters:

  • Fellow well-known experts in the field have provided further detail on the importance of her endeavor to the United States. To bolster her case further, we incorporated five recommendation letters collected by our client. One of whom stated:

“Her research addresses a key and timely issue in the liver allocation system of the United States, which is highly significant but linked to excessive costs. […] Thus, when taking all of the evidence into account, [our client] is one of the top scientists in the field of biostatistics, and her continued research in the United States falls within national interests.”

The Concluding Step:

We were able to submit all the required documents to the USCIS. After adjudicating her multi-method approaches to understanding specific aspects of change management in healthcare, which is clearly an endeavor with substantial merit and national importance, the USCIS approved her EB-2 NIW petition. Thus, our entire team would like to congratulate her on this turning point. We also thank her for choosing and trusting us.
