“Thanks for your help with my I-140 NIW application!”

General Field: Agricultural Science

Country of Origin: Bangladesh

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Idaho

Approval Notice Date: December 22nd, 2023

Processing Time: 4 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Our client possesses an exceptional academic background, holding an M.S. in soil, water, and environment degree and her professional endeavors as a graduate research assistant have centered on applying heavy metal contamination-translocation and remediation tactics in order to improve and enhance the quality and access to irrigation water in areas where water scarcity is a significant issue. We concluded that her proposed research work is of great importance because it directly addresses the urgent challenge of water scarcity in agriculture, a critical issue worldwide.

With an unwavering commitment to advancing knowledge, our client aspires to further explore and impart her expertise through publishing, conducting peer reviews, and accomplishing citations from several other scholars in the field.

Therefore, we noted the 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (4 of them first-authored), and 3 abstracts (all of them first-authored) she published in no fewer than 3 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals, altogether receiving an incredible 29 citations. Thus, it demonstrates how her peers see the implications of her research.

Also, in the same field of agricultural research, we spotted her actively engaging in the position of peer reviewer. She has successfully completed 5 peer reviews so far, in particular.

Furthermore, her study has received funding from USDA, The Idaho Barley Commission, Ministry of Science and Technology, NRF. In sum, our client’s work on metal contamination tracking serves as evidence that she has already made progress toward her larger effort to advance removal strategies to enhance progress in finding solutions against water scarcity.

When our client hired North America Immigration Law Group to help her secure the NIW approval, we were certain of her educational background, professional experience, and expertise, as well as her record of publication and citation, and the history of successful research in the field of agricultural science. After taking her NIW case, our goal was to prepare a solid NIW petition packet on her behalf and prove to the USCIS that among other applications, our client’s research is relevant to mitigating environmental pollution impact on water quality, advancing global water access goals, boosting economic benefits for the nation, and protecting ecosystems.

Fortunately, we were able to persuade the USCIS that her work in innovative sustainable wastewater management is advantageous to the U.S. economy. As a result, her national interest waiver petition was approved just 4 days after we filed it thanks to an upgrade in premium processing services. For this reason, we are happy that our client trusted our law firm to file her I-140 NIW petition, and we wish her continued success in her endeavors.
