On March 2nd, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Researcher in the Field of Algorithm Development and Optimization (Approval Notice).

General Field: Algorithm Development and Optimization

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Researcher

Country of Origin: Iran

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Arizona

Approval Notice Date: March 2nd, 2020

Processing Time: 7 months, 2 days

Case Summary:

Not long ago, a researcher from Iran received the good news that the USCIS had approved his EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. With extensive experience working in the field of algorithm development and optimization, our client also holds an M.Sc. in industrial engineering. Amongst other things, these qualifications ensured his eligibility for the national interest waiver.

In order to prove to the USCIS that our client deserved to get one step closer to his green card, we gathered a wealth of information on his diverse achievements in the field. From his citation count to publication record (90 and 3 respectively at the time of filing), we listed it all. We also noted the 6 times he assessed the work of his peers which demonstrated his position as a leading expert in his field. To strengthen his case, we incorporated 4 recommendation letters signed by other influential members of the research community. These experts strongly advocated for the approval of our client’s EB-2 NIW petition by signing off statements such as these:

  • “Nearly half of all businesses close within 5 years, primarily due to financial problems associated with poor supply chain management. [Client’s] algorithm effectively optimizes the supply chain to ensure that businesses are able to progress and thrive, thereby improving overall employment rates and economic growth.”
  • “Based on the success of his algorithm and the importance of its application to preserving energy and preventing unnecessary loss of product in the United States, [client’s] work is clearly invaluable to the field. It is therefore within the best interests of the United States that [client] be permitted to continue his research.”

We took a step further and proved to the USCIS that our client’s findings on the development of algorithms to optimize areas such as healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, and services is of great importance because it is focused on optimizing some of the most crucial areas of global commerce and industry through the application of advanced algorithms.

The approval of this petition is yet another example of our firm’s excellent record of helping our clients secure I-140 approval. We thank our client for selecting us to represent his NIW case and we wish him a bright future ahead.
