Case Summary:

A hardware engineer from China hired NAmILG ( to assist him in assembling an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Our client with a Ph.D. in electrical engineering exhibited great knowledge and skills in the same field. Having stated that, our proficient team began filing a convincing petition for him, as we were firm that his proposed research is relevant to semiconductor devices for medical imaging, agriculture, and the semiconductor industry, and we could definitely lead him to achieve the national interest waiver. Therefore, we added the following details in his petition packet and sent it to USCIS for further adjudication of his case.

Primarily, we discussed his research on the investigation of semiconductor processes and device physics to enhance the performance of advanced semiconductor devices, which are key to some of the most valuable global industries and medical concerns. It seems to be of great importance because of the value it holds for applications that include agriculture and medical imaging to detect atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease (CAD), and other diseases.

Also, we noted the 128 citations gathered from the 6 peer-reviewed journal articles he published in the top journals in his chosen field, confirming his publications are widely reviewed and relied upon. His work had an irrefutable impact on other electrical engineering researchers in the field.

Moreover, we specified the national importance of his research in the U.S. which has been supported with noteworthy funding grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the American Chemical Society (ACS). This impressive example of project funding is a testament to the recognized national merits of his ongoing developments in the electrical engineering field.

Our client obtained 4 recommendation letters provided from fellow experts in the field, who corroborated the cutting-edge nature of the field, and how it is critical for the country to continue allocating resources to electrical engineering research. It was imperative for us to include these letters in the petition packet. One of the recommenders contributed the following:

“Thus far, [client’s] research in the field has been absolutely essential for determining how best to improve the performance and quality of semiconductor devices… The repeated successes of his past pioneering research endeavors provide a veritable guarantee that he will continue to advance the field as a whole. His extended work is of unequivocal utility to the research community of the United States, and the nation would be at a significant disadvantage if it did not support his ongoing efforts.”

Our client’s NIW approval is yet another instance of our team’s successful endeavors on his case as well as influencing USCIS. Our client received his NIW approval within 6 months and 23 days, moving him one more step closer to the green card process. We cordially thank him for choosing our law firm and congratulate him for furthering his intended project.
