Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: September 11th, 2019

Processing Time: 6 months, 28 days

Case Summary:

An China-born computational scientist sought assistance from North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him with the first step of the green card process: filing an I-140 petition. With 22 peer reviews as well as 14 citations gathered from his 2 peer-reviewed journal articles and 2 peer-reviewed conference articles, our client’s work in the field of computational science has been well-received by other researchers, several of whom contributed letters of recommendation in support of his petition. These letters served as objective evidence that our client’s work has produced major breakthroughs in the field.

Thanks to our expertise and nearly 15,000 I-140 approvals we have obtained throughout the years, we quickly determined the best direction our client’s NIW petition should take. The documentary evidence we submitted proved that our client is working at the absolute forefront in computational science and that his contribution is facilitating advancement in his area of endeavors.

Adjudicated and approved based on Matter of Dhanasar, the USCIS clearly agreed with our argument that our client’s research on seismic data processing and imaging for oil and gas exploration and production has both substantial merit and national importance. As these industries form a major part of the United States economy, his investigations in greater subsurface knowledge directly support the enduring success and productivity of countless US businesses, allowing them to make decisions on their operations without taking unnecessary financial and manpower risk.

As for all our clients, our team built a comprehensive and personalized petition that focused on his unique skills and strengths. Based on what we learned, our client has provided critical improvements in seismic data processing images, which have been acknowledged as enormously useful for oil well drilling. Prior to the advent of 3D imaging technology, drilling was both financially risky and physically dangerous endeavor that relied on crude seismic information. With such a prominent foothold in the industry, our client’s algorithm research is invaluable in making operations decisions that could shape the efficacy and growth of the oil gas industry.

We are pleased that our professional team convinced the USCIS of the influence and widespread implementation of our client’s work. We congratulate him for securing the NIW petition approval, and we wish him the very best as he continues to progress in the field of computational science and seismic imaging.
