Client’s Testimonial:

“I appreciate all your efforts in successfully filing my case.”

On January 23rd, 2020, we received another NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Field of Soil Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Soil Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher

Country of Origin: Iran

Approval Notice Date: January 23rd, 2020

Processing Time: 5 months, 18 days

Case Summary:

A gifted postdoctoral researcher from Iran engaged the expert services of North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him with the first step of the two-part green card process- filing an I-140 petition. After carefully evaluating our client’s credentials, we confirmed that he was a suitable candidate for EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver). As soon as our client signed and returned the contract to us, we got to work preparing a convincing EB-2 NIW presentation for him.

Establishing our client’s high standing in the field:

As with all our cases, we worked diligently to compile a wealth of information on our client’s accolades and accomplishments. For instance, we noted his Ph.D. in Environmental and Soil Sciences, the 26 citations to his work, the 5 publications to his name, and his experience of judging the work of his peers for 13 times. We established that not many other researchers can attain such effectual research results and that his findings on the development of novel farming strategies to improve soil health and the adaptation capacity of agricultural systems in the face of extreme weather conditions greatly benefit the United States. Furthermore, we determined that our client’s research ensures a more reliable supply of food through his focus on soil health and improved land management techniques.

Gathering additional evidence:

To strengthen our client’s EB-2 NIW petition, we asked him to persuade his peers to help out. We needed them to sign recommendation letters that verified the importance of our client’s research not just to other researchers but to the nation as a whole. 5 experts agreed to advocate for the approval of our client’s EB-2 NIW petition, one of whom described his work as: “As the threat of weather extremes to food security becomes more apparent, [client’s] work in the study of robust adaptable agricultural systems is essential to maintaining food security and the quality of natural resources. It is therefore of the utmost importance that [client] be able to continue his research in the United States.”

Obtaining petition approval:

Exactly 5 months and 18 days after we filed the EB-2 NIW petition on our client’s behalf, he received notification of case approval. We congratulate our client for overcoming such a significant hurdle in the green card process. We recently sent our complimentary D.I.Y Packet to help him with his I-485 application, and we wish him well as he continues to progress the important field of soil science.
