Success Stories: I-140 NIW Approved for a Geotechnical Engineer from Egypt in the Field of Geotechnical Engineering with Our Uniquely Prepared Petition Packet


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you!… I will indeed refer you to my friends.”

On September 25th, 2021, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Geotechnical Engineer in the Field of Geotechnical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Geotechnical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Geotechnical Engineer

Country of Origin: Egypt

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New York

Approval Notice Date: September 25th, 2021

Processing Time: 9 months, 21 days

Case Summary:

“Avenues for the implementation of [client’s] work extend beyond the field itself, considering the relevance of his studies for the transportation sector and the national economy….His findings have already proven useful for state and local organizations, which have directly relied upon [client’s] insights and knowledgeable research to invest in the timely, cost-efficient construction of durable bridges.”

The above statement is given by one of the five fellow experts of our client working in the field of geotechnical engineering. Hailing from Egypt, our client is currently positioned as a geotechnical engineer after completing his Ph.D. in civil engineering. He approached NAILG to file his NIW case. Since there are certain prerequisites set by USCIS to be fulfilled by an individual including:

  • The foreign national must be in a position to advance the proposed endeavor.
  • The applicant must present evidence that the U.S. would benefit on balance to waive the job offer criteria for an EB-2.
  • A proposed endeavor, holding substantial merit and national importance.

Therefore we prepared his petition packet accordingly by incorporating the following key essentials:

  • His proposed endeavor is to investigate factors that affect the integrity of structures like bridges and dams to enable the development of more durable infrastructure.
  • His research related to factors affecting the integrity and safety of built structures has great substantial merit and national importance because it has applications in improving groundwater sustainability and infrastructure.
  • His work has resulted in 21 peer-reviewed scientific articles (10 of them first-authored), and 2 technical reports and is cited a total of 87 times according to Google Scholar.
  • He has completed at least 20 peer reviews for at least 6 journals and conferences.
  • His work has received funding from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program that addresses problems impacting roadway transportation and infrastructure in the United States.
  • He served as the technical session chair/co-chair for 2 conferences and a technical committee member for 1 institute.

Therefore, our client’s research is clearly important to the nation.

He thus got a positive response in his favor from the adjudicating judge and has even retained our firm for his IVP case which is filed at present. We wish him well and congratulate him on his success.
