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 professor, head, and research associate working in the field of construction management approached us to file an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. As we use different strategies based on our client’s background, 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 construction management but has also accomplished a great publication record in his field. His research resulted in 76 peer-reviewed journal articles (28 of them first-authored), 187 conference papers (79 of them first-authored), and 11 book chapters (6 of them first-authored). He also held a substantial citation record of completing at least 240 reviews to date and held 903 citations according to the Google Scholar tool. This demonstrated that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of construction management.

Furthermore, his research work contributes to commerce both nationally and internationally in the United States of America as his proposed endeavor is to continue his research on developing models, frameworks, and guidelines for identifying and eliminating all forms of waste in construction operations to keep people safe and healthy while improving performance at the project, organization, and industry levels. His research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it has contributed enormously to sustainability in the construction industry.

His case was further supported by including two recommendation letters that he obtained from his fellow experts in the field. It should also be noted that the client’s research has been supported with funding from the National Research Foundation in South Africa. This funding supports projects that advance research career development, increase public science engagement, and establish leading-edge research platforms that transform the scientific landscape. Therefore, his research has had a transformative impact on scientific progress.

Thus, our client’s education, experience, and expertise in his field, the significance of his contributions, and his record of success position him well to continue to advance his proposed endeavor of developing models, frameworks, and guidelines for identifying and eliminating all forms of waste in construction operations to keep people safe and healthy while improving performance at the project, organization, and industry levels.

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.
