Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group has established itself in the world as a leading immigration service provider and legal aid by ensuring the success of thousands of petitioners to date. So when we got a request to file an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on behalf of an expert in the field of data science from Japan, we made sure he got the best service leading to his case approval in November 2021. In order to ensure the success of his case, we made sure the following was included in his petition letter to the USCIS:

  • Indication that the proposed research work would be of national interest for the U.S.
  • Indication that the petitioner was equipped to further their research in the proposed area of study.
  • Supporting documents to prove the worthiness of the case.

To fulfill these criteria, we showed that:

  • Our client’s proposed endeavor is to continue his development and deployment of cutting-edge machine learning models and algorithms in order to solve real-world problems, such as improving fraud detection and enhancing productivity analyses.
  • We showed that his research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it contributes to advancing the manufacturing industry and solving real-world problems including online fraudulent activities.
  • Consequently, we made apparent that his research stands to benefit the United States manufacturing industry as well as the e-commerce sector, which in turn, positively affects the overall U.S. economy.
  • Finally, we showed that his research has resulted in 3 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored) and 1 first-authored pre-print article and has been cited 21 times.

We also included 4 letters of recommendation, two of which stated:

“[The client’s] supply planning techniques save American companies time and reduce their costs. He has built advanced analytical tools that address supply and demand uncertainty, multiple transit options, and economic volatility. These valuable features have led to the applicability of his methods throughout American industries. His research is nationally beneficial as it promotes the profitability in a critical domestic industry while maintaining the United States’ competitive advantage in the global semiconductor industry.”

We are thus glad to have had the opportunity to represent him in this case and we thank him for his trust in our firm.
