Case Summary:

A holder of a Ph.D. in biomedical sciences hired North America Immigration Law Group to help him file an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. Our team thoroughly evaluated his impressive credentials before taking on his case, and we were confident that we could help him win the national interest waiver. We take pride in our personalized approach to customizing I-140 petitions, which we believe has contributed to our high approval rate. Our goal is to demonstrate to the USCIS that our client’s proposed research is relevant to reducing the health and economic impact of viral infections, including SARS-CoV-2 and enterovirus.

We included the following highlighted pointers in his NIW petition packet.

  • Our client, an expert in virology, is pursuing research to create a high-throughput screening platform. This platform will aid in studying the factors involved in viral replication, which can lead to better diagnostic and treatment strategies for emerging infectious diseases.
  • We acknowledged the fact that his research is crucial in advancing the global response to emerging infectious diseases, thereby reducing their economic and health impact.
  • In addition, our client has accomplished impressive feats by publishing influential papers in 9 highly-ranked peer-reviewed journals in his chosen field. His publication record includes 14 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored and 1 of them co-first-authored) and 1 published U.S. patent. This attests to his productivity in the field as well as define the feature of his academic career. We have presented our client’s publications as evidence of his contributions to the field, which have been cited 785 times.
  • After drafting the petition, we also included four recommendation letters from field experts to bolster his case. They corroborated further that the proposed project by our client has significant implications for the United States, where infectious diseases have a major impact on the national healthcare system and economy. Since viral infectious diseases cause a significant financial burden, it is urgent to allocate resources to virology research, as viral infections can quickly become a public health crisis. As a leading researcher in this field, he is a valuable asset to the United States’ efforts to combat infectious diseases.

We indeed received another success to our bucket by providing the necessary aid to our client. He secured an NIW approval quickly with the help of USCIS’s expedited service, which has a fast submission timeline. Our high approval rate and ability to quickly submit client cases make the NIW premium processing service a win-win for our clients. The USCIS sent the approval notification just 8 days after we filed the case. We appreciate our client for choosing our law firm and having faith in us throughout the process. We wish him a great future ahead.
