Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) helped a visiting scholar from China acquire EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition approval. Our client’s research focused on developing innovative algorithms for data mining and big data. We worked diligently to prove to the USCIS that our client’s research in his area is of great importance because it advances big data and computer imaging technologies to the benefit of global commerce and society. His research has appreciably enhanced computer imaging technologies, which are used not only in film and entertainment but in vital areas such medicine.

Drafting the Petition:

While preparing his NIW case, we looked at our client’s educational and professional qualifications and included what we learned in the petition packet drafted by us. We noted that he received a Ph.D. in computer software and theory. This was adjudged by the 154 citations accumulated from his 20 peer-reviewed journal articles (9 of them first-authored or sole-authored), 1 published patent application, 1 granted patent, and 12 peer-reviewed conference papers. Our client is also active in the scientific community as a peer reviewer for highly acclaimed journals and has already conducted at least 15 reviews.

Letters of Recommendation:

The NIW petition received a boost from the recommendation letters contributed by other distinguished experts in the field. These letters detailed our client’s academic achievements and research projects, and shed light on the highly urgent nature of his efforts in aiding global commerce and society. Endorsing our client’s continued stay in the country one recommender wrote: “Methods for analyzing data are more pertinent to the US economy than ever thanks to the mountains of customer and product information that are created each day across the country. Allowing [client] to extend his career in the United States therefore contributes to the operations of KTI industries and the economy as a whole.”

We are delighted that our efforts led to his NIW approval in 8 months. We congratulate our client on achieving this milestone in the first step of the green card process and thank him for choosing NAILG to be a part of his success.
