General Field: Remote Sensing

Country of Origin: Pakistan

Country of Residence at the Time of Filing: Saudi Arabia

Case Summary:

Mostly, we get applicants who want to file an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, which is a subcategory of the EB-2 non-immigrant visa allocated to those petitioners who can prove that their work is of high value to the U.S. Thus, when our client, a professor based in Saudi Arabia, hired North America Immigration Law Group, we assured him to look into his academic and professional documents thoroughly and help him find relevant information to customize his NIW petition. When we were satisfied with his provided credentials, we agreed to countersign the attorney-client relationship agreement and aided him to file his I-140 NIW petition by specifying the following in his petition packet:

  • His proposed endeavor was to continue his research leveraging remote sensing, snow monitoring, and water resource management technology to advance snow-covered area estimation and snow runoff modelling. Thus, we deduced that his research has great substantial merit and national importance, and among other applications, his research is relevant to ensuring environmental and human health
  • His research is significant as it safeguards environmental and human health. Due to his knowledge and expertise in snow monitoring, water resource management, and environmental science, he has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for almost 20 authoritative journals, projects, and conferences in the field. We noted that he has completed at least 41 reviews to date, proving his elevated stand in the field of remote sensing.
  • His proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States. His state-of-the-art approaches using satellite data and advanced algorithms ensure the accurate estimation and management of precious resources, helping Americans receive enough water for drinking, cooking, washing, and other essential needs.
  • Throughout his time working in the field, he has built an impressive record of success, including 29 peer-reviewed journal articles (22 of them first-authored), 8 peer-reviewed conference articles (3 of them first-authored), and 2 abstracts he published in no fewer than 7 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals. Researchers from around the world have relied upon his research to further their own investigations in the field. That is, his publications have been cited a total of 540 times according to Google Scholar.
  • Furthermore, his work has also been supported by 4 letters of recommendation written by other experts of which one said:

“There are many benefits that the field of remote sensing gives to the world. One of its most important benefits is its ability to assist in the monitoring of the world’s air quality, particularly with regard to aerosol proliferation. Remote sensing allows researchers to monitor events such as dust storms that spread harmful aerosols and give advance warning to people in at-risk areas. These areas are all around the world, but especially in arid regions such as Saudi Arabia or the American Southwest. [Client’s] investigation into effective aerosol monitoring methods through the usage of remote sensing technology enables more efficient and accurate dissemination of air quality information, which benefits human and environmental health across the world by improving air quality management strategies.”

Considering the ground-breaking research of our client, who is applying his expertise in the field of remote sensing is therefore vital to the future health and security of the United States. We are glad that we were able to help him with all of our resources and achieved his NIW approval in just 3 months and 19 days, that too without any further request for evidence (RFE) issuance, which is incredible. We truly thank our client for having faith in us and cooperating with us throughout the process.
