Case Summary:

An expert in the field of food science from Iran had come to North America Immigration Law Group seeking help with his NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. As is customary with new clients, our team embarked on a journey to check the soundness of his claim to this category. Since the USCIS demands clear proof of the applicant’s research being of national interest, our team already knew how to go about this job. His proposed endeavor was to work on investigating and designing protocols to produce healthier food products in order to improve nutritional outcomes and overall health in patients with specific dietary requirements.

Given that his work contributes to the growth of the global health food market, a rapidly expanding portion of the global food industry, we decided that his research is of great national importance. With this belief at the back of our heads, we decided to use his documents to prove this for the adjudicating authorities at the USCIS. We thus showed the following in his petition:

  • His research deals with the development and design of food products with modifications that allow for increased shelf stability and palatability, improving the accessibility and availability of healthy food products.
  • In addition, his research allows for the production of more palatable modified food products, which further increases the quality of life for patients whose previous diet is now limited due to a swallowing disorder.
  • He has completed at least 38 reviews to date for international and national journals of repute.
  • His research has resulted in 35 peer-reviewed journal articles (9 of them first-authored) and 1 first-authored abstract.
  • These publications have been cited a total of 831 times according to Google Scholar.
  • He has also obtained 2 letters of recommendation from other experts in the field.
  • He has pursued research directly related to his proposed endeavor of investigating and designing protocols to produce healthier food products in order to improve nutritional outcomes and overall health in patients with specific dietary requirements for 11 years.

Thus, we showed that his education, experience, and expertise in his field, the significance of his contributions, and his past record of success have positioned him well to continue to advance his proposed endeavor of designing modified food products to improve patient nutritional outcomes and overall health. The evidence also showed that his research on designing modified food products to improve patient nutritional outcomes and overall health holds significant value for improving patient nutritional outcomes for Americans affected by dysphagia.

So, when the USCIS approved his NIW status only 101 days after filing, we were very happy and proud of this success. We thank our client for his trust in our firm and wish him the very best in life.
