Success Stories: After Securing NIW Approval, a Laser Engineer From Taiwan in the Field of Physics with 26 Citations, Filed I-485


Client’s Testimonial:

“It is a great news! Thanks for your help.”

On March 27th, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Laser Engineer in the Field of Physics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Physics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Laser Engineer

Country of Origin: Taiwan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: March 27th, 2020

Processing Time: 1 year, 2 months, 13 days

Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in physics and years of experience working in the same field, our client is certainly a force to be reckoned with. His various accomplishments in the field have made him a suitable candidate for the national interest waiver. After North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf, the USCIS spent 14 months and 13 days adjudicating his case before granting their approval. The reason why it took a little longer than the expected 4-9 months is because the petition was issued a Request for Evidence (RFE). As part of our comprehensive services, we efficiently responded to the RFE and cleared all the doubts regarding our client’s credentials.

What makes our client special?

In order to prove to the USCIS that our client is the cream of the crop, we highlighted his 3 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored) and the 26 citations gathered from his work. We also carefully documented his work on developing high-power fiber lasers within the visible wavelength region. We proved that his research in his area of expertise is of great importance because it has applications in areas of fundamental practical value, including in medicine and in efficient power generation, to name just two. His work in this field is broadly applicable to the advancement of medical technology, allowing for the development of more accurate diagnostic and treatment strategies.

To back up our argument, we incorporated recommendation letters contributed by other experts working in the field of physics. These experts signed off on strong statements such as these:

  • “[Client] has conducted significant research on the physics of lasers, and the functions of lasers indicate the widespread relevance of his findings.”
  • “[Client’s] work is relevant to the development and improvement of optoelectronic devices, which shows that his research is of high importance to the United States.”
  • “As for other sectors, laser devices are valued at $2.5 trillion in the areas of healthcare and biotechnology as well as $4 trillion in the areas of telecommunications, e-commerce, and information technology. From these statistics, it is clear that [client’s] projects on lasers are beneficial to the U.S. economy.”

We handled his case with utmost attentiveness and made sure every necessary evidence regarding the significance of our client’s research was presented. We truly appreciate our client for trusting us with the preparation of his case, and we thank him for also retaining our law firm for the last step of the green card process: filing an I-485.
