Case Summary:

An Iranian PhD Candidate and Research/Teaching Assistant based in California hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. With an MS degree in software engineering and various accolades in the bag, our client is a suitable candidate for the National Interest Waiver. Once we were retained, our team initiated a comprehensive research on our client’s experience and expertise in order to devise a strong petition. With our help, his NIW was approved in less than 3 months.

We were tasked with proving to the USCIS that our client’s continued work in computer science that focuses on developing algorithms for business process management and distributed systems by expanding the use of permissioned blockchain systems to areas such as supply chain management, healthcare, and the Internet of Things greatly benefits the United States. Considering the field of computer science being responsible for many technological breakthroughs, our client’s research specifying the subfields of distributed computing and business process management has a wide range of applications. His findings thereby serves industries such as autonomous vehicles, telemedicine, individualized healthcare via data gathered from wearable technologies, supply chains, agriculture and the national economy.

After months of hard work, we managed to gather a wealth of information related to our client’s achievements. For instance, we noted the 45 citations gathered from his 30 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles, and the 12 times he reviewed the work of his peers for highly acclaimed scientific journals and conferences.

Besides preparing a customized and exquisitely structured NIW petition, we also provided our client advice on various issues related to the petition, such as selecting suitable recommenders who could advocate for the approval of his case. One of the five leading computer scientists from top universities and research groups provided the following testimonial in support of our client’s NIW petition: “[Client]’s work has addressed some of the most pressing issues around the implementation of these technologies, providing significant advances to their development and utilization across a range of applications.”.

We join our client as he celebrates the approval of his NIW petition. We are currently patiently awaiting for a decision on him and his spouse’s I-485 applications. Once the USCIS approve their I-485 applications, they will become US permanent residents. We thank him for choosing North America Immigration Law Group to represent both his I-140 NIW and I-485 cases.
