Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in electrical engineering and many years of knowledge and experience, our client undoubtedly has the skills to advance his research on radio-frequency identification technology. He reached out to North America Immigration Law Group to help him in filing an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. As a part of our services, we administered his educational and professional background. We were certain that his research is of great importance because it has introduced innovative methods for improving the efficiency of warehouse and supply chain environments here in the United States.

Our objective was to present his achievements in his field to USCIS to help him achieve the national interest waiver. Hence, we highlighted the following facts in his case to establish that how he is beneficial to the United States:

  • We emphasized our client’s publications that have been cited 65 times from the 11 peer-reviewed journal articles and conference papers (6 of them first-authored) and 1 book chapter, symbolizing that his publications were of utmost quality and most-cited in the field of electrical engineering.
  • Also, he is an active peer-reviewer for the top-ranked journals, and he has reviewed 30 articles. We observed that only accomplished experts in their field are requested to perform important review work, further demonstrating his important standing in the field.
  • To actuate the case, we included five recommendation letters in our petition file acquired by our client from fellow experts in the field of electrical engineering, providing further insight into the virtue of his effort. One of the recommenders contributed a few words:

“[Client] has completed influential research that directly addresses this need. With the implementation of his work, the U.S. economy will continue to flourish within the retail and e-commerce industries.”

With the corroborating documents, we established that our client’s research on radio-frequency identification technology is certainly an endeavor with strong merit and national importance. Thus, USCIS granted our client the NIW approval after a complete adjudication. We had a pleasure working with our client, and we congratulate him for progressing on this milestone.
