Case Summary:

A postdoctoral research associate from Bangladesh hired North America Immigration Law Group ( when he decided that he wanted to file an EB-2 NIW petition. Our client has a Ph.D. in microbiology and many years of experience researching the field of molecular biology. His various achievements in the field made him an ideal candidate for EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver). Part of our job was to prove to the USCIS that his work is national in scope and that his area of research is important to the United States.

Our Winning Strategy:

Our legal team and support staff have helped thousands of clients attain petition approval and thus, are extremely skilled in putting together convincing petition packets. We have devised a winning strategy that consisted of key points such as the client’s professional accomplishments and academic achievements. In this case, we noted our client’s 11 peer-reviewed articles in high-impact international journals and the 226 citations gathered from his work at the time of filing. We also noted the 2 times our client had conducted peer review for various journals and conferences.

Furthermore, we included recommendation letters furnished by other leaders in the field of molecular biology. One of them stated: “[Client’s] impressive background and training have shaped him into a researcher with a unique perspective and background that allow him to conduct research geared heavily towards practicality and usability. The research community of the United States relies heavily on [client’s] insights regarding food microbiology and molecular biology.”

Obtaining Petition Approval:

Exactly 6 months and 16 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, and we wish him well as he continues to progress this important field of molecular biology. Lastly, we thank our client for trusting our services for his NIW case and also retaining us for his I-485 applications.
