Case Summary:

With a M.S. in inorganic chemistry from Nepal and many years of experience working in the field of green chemistry, our client decided that the time had come for him to secure a green card. He approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) for help with the first step of the green card process: filing an I-140 petition. After evaluating his credentials, we determined that he would be a suitable candidate for EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver). These are some of the key points included in his petition:

  • We noted the 3 peer-reviewed journal articles (one of them first-authored) to his name, all of which were published in well-known scientific journals. The dissemination of our client’s work via journals ensured that various researchers around the world had access to his findings, and thus, are able to work collectively to progress the field as a whole.
  • Thanks to Google Scholar and other reliable sources such as Scopus, we determined that our client’s work had been cited 32 times at the time of filing. This proved to the USCIS that his findings impact the work of other researchers.
  • To back up our argument that our client deserved the national interest waiver, we included recommendation letters volunteered by five other experts in the field. According to one of them: “Well-trained chemists like [client] remain crucial to the sustainable development of chemical industry as it continues to grow and provide many of the basic necessities of life. Consequently, [client’s] endeavors to engineer cleaner catalyzed reactions are of undoubted value.”

As we were able to prove to the USCIS that our client’s investigations on the design and development of novel catalysts based on earth abundant metals is important to the US because it not only advances scientific knowledge for the synthesis of different chemicals and drugs using cheaper and less toxic catalyst alternatives but also benefits several industries pertinent to the global economy. With our hard work and dedication, the USCIS approved his case in just 6 months and 4 days. We congratulate our client for surpassing this milestone. We thank our client for trusting us for his I-485 applications and we wish him the best with the final step in the green card process.
