Success Stories: NIW Approval Became Easy for a Highway Safety Engineer from Iran in 6 Months With Our Law Firm


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much for your kind help towards my I140 application. I am very pleased and satisfied with your service.”

On February 18th, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Highway Safety Engineer in the Field of Transportation Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Transportation Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Highway Safety Engineer

Country of Origin: Iran

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Illinois

Approval Notice Date: February 18th, 2020

Processing Time: 5 months, 27 days

Case Summary:

5 months and 27 days after we filed an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) on our client’s behalf, the Nebraska Service Center approved his petition. Our client, a highway safety engineer from Iran has years of experience working in the field of transportation engineering and is currently focused on transportation and highway safety.

Client’s Credentials:

In order to qualify for EB-2 NIW, one must possess specific credentials. We noted our client’s PhD in transportation engineering and established that his advanced degree has equipped him with the skills needed to carry out practical and useful research. Moreover, we noted the 27 citations gathered from his 1 peer-reviewed, first-authored journal article and 4 peer-reviewed conference papers, which proved that other researchers in the field rely on our client’s findings to progress their work. We also noted the 3 times our client assessed the work of his peers, which demonstrated his position as a leading expert in his field. Additionally, we summarized that our client’s investigation in his area is of great importance because it addresses human safety on roadways and around infrastructure. Moreover, our client’s research has improved the computational costs of running analyses of systems that are vulnerable under seismic loads. We also concluded that not many other similarly qualified researchers can attain the same level of research success.

Third-party Support:

To increase our chances of attaining a petition approval from the USCIS, we encouraged our client to obtain recommendation letters from other experts in the field. We needed these letters to fortify our claim that our client’s work is of utmost importance to the United States and that his findings benefit other researchers. Our client managed to get 6 signed letters, one of which stated that: “The benefits of his efforts are numerous. This innovative data analysis allows us to identify the most significant sources of traffic danger, to isolate root causes of those danger points, and to devise solutions that are realistic and effective while remaining cost-efficient. [Client’s] work thus presents substantial benefits to societies around the world.”

We thank our client for trusting us for his NIW case and also retaining our law firm for his I-485 applications. With our help, we are delighted that his NIW petition was approved in 5 months and 27 days and we wish him the best as he continues to perform impactful research here in the United States.
