Client’s Testimonial:

“This is great news! Thank you so much! you are the best!”

On March 27th, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Research Scientist in the Field of Computer Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Computer Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Scientist

Country of Origin: Jordan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New York

Approval Notice Date: March 27th, 2020

Processing Time: 5 months, 26 days

Case Summary:

A research scientist from Jordan hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help her obtain a green card. There are two steps involved in the green card process (filing an I-140 petition and an I-485 application) and our client retained us to help her with both. Exactly 5 months and 26 days after her I-140 petition was filed, she received notification of case approval. Even better than that, she learned that her I-485 application had been approved 5 months later. The reason why the USCIS took action on her I-485 application so quickly is because she chose to file it while her I-140 was pending approval, which essentially gave the USCIS a head start in the adjudication process.

In this case, our client’s I-140 petition was filed under EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver), and these are some of the key points that paved the way for case approval:

  • The 366 citations collected from her work as a researcher in the field of computer science.
  • Her 18 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles (7 of them first-authored).
  • Her doctoral degree in computer science proved that she is equipped with the theoretical and practical knowledge to continue progressing the field of computer science.
  • The five recommendation letters signed by other professionals in the field, all of whom advocated for the approval of our client’s NIW petition. According to one of them:

“Hence, researchers that are contributing significantly towards advancing this ever-growing technology must be supported in order to continue to optimize this technology and expand its usage over other fields. [Client] is one such researcher who has made significant strides for improving the applicability of WSNs.”

  • Details of her research on applied cryptography, security, and distributed systems. Her work in this area is of great importance because it significantly advances the technology for wireless sensor networks and wireless broadband networks, in turn impacting related industries such as telecommunications and healthcare.

Overall, we were able to prove to the USCIS that our client’s research contributes to cybersecurity on a global scale, providing critical tools for enhancing security of sensitive data across multiple types of wireless networks. We congratulate her for securing NIW and I-485 approvals, and we wish her the best as she continues to conduct outstanding research here in the United States.
