Processing Time: 10 months

Case Summary:

Having heard about the North America Immigration Law Group’s unique way of customization and laying equal value to each petition letter, a postdoctoral researcher working in the field of electrical engineering approached us to file NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. As we use different strategies based on our client’s background, the field of expertise, and various achievements, we assured him of quality service. We ascertained this by including a few things in our petition packet which we tailored to his advantage:

Upon reviewing his credentials, we found that our client not only held a Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering but has also accomplished a great publication record in his field. His research resulted in 6 peer-reviewed journal articles and 6 peer-reviewed conference articles. He also held a substantial citation record of 54 citations according to the Google Scholar tool. This demonstrated that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of electrical engineering.

Furthermore, his research work contributes to commerce both nationally and internationally in the United States of America as his proposed endeavor aids in improving the detection of defects in semiconductors and high-resolution non-destructive imaging of object structures, providing major support to the semiconductor industry and the improvement of electronics. Besides, his work lends a valuable technology to the lucrative industry, allowing it to better ensure the quality of its products.

His case was further supported by including five recommendation letters that he obtained from his fellow experts in the field. One of the recommenders stated:

“Today, [client] is continuing the optical imaging research he began in his doctoral studies through a research position at his alma mater. This background has afforded him a unique and applicable skillset at the intersection of physics, math, and optics that few electrical engineers possess. For these reasons, I strongly recommend [client] be allowed to continue his innovative work in the United States unabated.”

As made clear by this objective evidence and expert testimony, our client’s proposed endeavor of continuing his research on developing new optical imaging techniques for high-resolution non-destructive materials characterization and imaging has significant substantial merit. Thus, his work to improve quality assurance procedures in the semiconductor industry benefits numerous sectors operating around the world.

It should also be noted that the client’s research has in fact been supported with funding from major research institutions including National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research and has had a major influence on other scholars’ understanding of the field. Other researchers consistently look to his methods and findings to inform and guide their studies, which indicates that he is well-positioned to make additional useful discoveries in the field of electrical engineering.

All of these factors aided by the excellent case preparation strategy employed by our experts, helped him obtain his NIW (National Interest Waiver) application approval. We are grateful to him for his continued trust in us. We wish him the very best in his life.
