Success Stories: Experts from NAILG Helps Postdoctoral Research Associate from China Get NIW Approval Despite an RFE


Client’s Testimonial:

“Great service and will recommend it anyone who wants and does not know how to apply for a green card.”

On November 17th, 2021, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Field of Neuroscience (Approval Notice).

General Field: Neuroscience

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Research Associate

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New York

Approval Notice Date: November 17th, 2021

Processing Time: 15 months, 7 days

Case Summary:

USCIS demands that any NIW or National Interest Waiver category applicant fulfill the following requirements:

  • The proposed endeavor has both substantial merit and national importance.
  • You are well positioned to advance the proposed endeavor.
  • On balance, it would be beneficial to the United States to waive the requirements of a job offer, and thus the labor certification.

It is in putting together and filing a petition proving the above that our firm helps the clients. So whenever we get a request to file an NIW petition on a client’s behalf, we make sure to gather every information relevant to their case before moving ahead.

So when in August of 2020, a Chinese postdoctoral research associate in the field of neuroscience came to us with his NIW request we had to look into his proposed endeavor. We found that he wanted to investigate the mechanisms of neurological diseases using computational modeling, psychophysics, and molecular biology techniques in order to improve our understanding of neurological diseases and support the development of diagnostics and treatments for diseases such as schizophrenia and glaucoma. This was why he had been funded by the National Eye Institute (NEI) of the National Institutes of Health. On the other hand, he also received 5 letters of recommendation for his work.

We also made sure to showcase his 6 peer-reviewed articles which had been cited 82 times already. Despite submitting all the relevant documentary evidence, the case received an RFE (request for additional evidence), however, our adept team and our client’s diligence in preparing the RFE response to USCIS established that his case has a substantial merit, and we are glad that the approval from USCIS confirmed our view.

We are grateful to our client for his trust in our service, and we wish him the best in life.
