Client’s Testimonial:

On April 13th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Tenure Track Assistant Professor in the Field of Computer Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Computer Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Tenure Track Assistant Professor

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New York

Approval Notice Date: April 13th, 2022

Processing Time: 12 months, 25 days

Case Summary:

The I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) is a kind of nonimmigrant visa for those foreign nationals who can show their value to the United States in any chosen area of study. This means any applicant whose work is of significance to the United States, can apply and get approval within this category. This was the case for an Indian client who came to NAILG seeking help with his NIW petition.

As an expert in computer science, his proposed endeavor was to continue his research on improving innovative technologies and healthcare by using his expertise in machine learning, deep learning, computer vision, and data analytics to develop advanced intelligent learning machines designed to augment healthcare and smart technology. So our team quickly figured out that his work is of great importance because it is related to a significant global market that improves technology critical to transportation and medicine. At the same time, his research directly improves the capabilities of learning machines in parameters related to healthcare and transportation, ensuring the ongoing and extreme relevance of his research.

Our team collected other relevant information such as his project funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the review service he has performed some 10 times already. At the same time, his work has resulted in 3 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored), 8 conference papers (2 of them first-authored), and 2 patents and these publications have been cited a total of 179 times according to Google Scholar. All of these factors along with the fact that his 13 years of service in the field were supported by 2 letters of recommendation from experts who knew his work helped our case and won him the approval without an RFE.

We are glad to have helped him in getting his NIW approval without an RFE and we are thankful to him for retaining us to file his EB1-A and I-485 cases. So, it was a joyous moment for us when he received his EB1-A and I-485 approvals too. Our team wishes him all the best in future endeavors.
