Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for helping me to get the I-140 approval.”

On March 3rd, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a PhD student in the Field of Biomedical Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Biomedical Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: PhD student

Country of Origin: Taiwan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: March 3rd, 2022

Processing Time: 4 months, 27 days

Case Summary:

A client from Taiwan came to North America Immigration Law Group in 2021 seeking help with his NIW or National Interest Waiver petition. Since the EB2- NIW is a type of nonimmigrant visa issued for foreign nationals who can prove that their work is of national importance to the United States, our team had to ensure that they could help the client present a well-prepared petition with evidence proving his worth for the country.

This was made possible by looking at his following academic and professional documents:

    • Updated CVs
    • Transcripts
    • Certificates
    • Records of publication, citation, and peer review service
    • Letters of recommendation
    • Funding information, etc.

Our team was able to gather the following from these documents:

  • We showed that he was a PhD student in biomedical science studying a Ph.D. in veterinary physiology and pharmacology.
  • We wrote that his proposed endeavor is to generate an in vitro engineered articular cartilage in order to provide a novel cell-based therapy for clinical osteoarthritis treatment and further demystify the mechanisms underlying obesity-associated disease and bone and joint regeneration.
  • We showed that his research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it provides alternatives to the surgical or complex bone repair therapies that are the current standard when a patient has an amputation or degenerative joint disease.
  • That his research has resulted in 3 peer-reviewed journal articles.
  • And these publications have been cited a total of 86 times according to Google Scholar.
  • Furthermore, his study has received funding from the American Heart Association, the American Diabetes Association, and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.
  • We attached 2 letters of recommendation supporting these claims and confirming his elite status in the field.

These facts were able to establish that it is indeed beneficial to the United States to waive the requirements of a job offer and labor certification for our client. We, therefore, established eligibility for a national interest waiver. So, we rejoiced when his petition was granted in just 119 days. We thank our client for his trust in us and we wish him the very best in all future endeavors.
