Case Summary:

Less than 4 months after we filed an NIW petition for an Iranian research assistant in the field of Operations Management, the USCIS granted his case approval. We believe that our highly detailed NIW petition and unprecedented insight into USCIS adjudication trends played a critical role in the case approval.

Our client is an expert in the field of decisions, operations, and technology management, as he proposes to continue his research on developing new approaches to enhance manufacturing processes so as to solve vital industrial problems. One area he is apt to greatly contribute to is the passenger vehicle industry whereas our client’s proposed optimized automobile manufacturing processes could substantially benefit the US economy. In the petition letter, we addressed the 28 times his 4 journal publications were cited as well as the importance of our client’s research, and the 7 times he has judged the work of his peers. Our team worked attentively and organized the evidence in an orderly manner and presented a strong case to the USCIS.

In addition, we have assisted our client to select the list of recommenders to affirm his contributions. Based on our experiences, including recommendation letters signed by prominent researchers in the field is a key to strengthen one’s case. According to one of the six signed letters: “In further demonstration of the value of his work, [Client]’s various papers have been cited dozens of times, which demonstrates the influential nature of his findings. Indeed, with citations to his work coming from research across the United States and around the world, [Client] is unquestionably influencing other researchers who are focused on the same critical issues that his work is addressing”.

We are pleased that our efforts paved the way for his NIW petition approval. We congratulate our client for completing this significant first step in the green card process, and we are glad to list his case among our 12,000 success stories.
