On March 4th, 2021, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Food Scientist in the Field of Food Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Food Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Food Scientist

Country of Origin: Malaysia

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Missouri

Approval Notice Date: March 4th, 2021

Processing Time: 7 months, 12 days

Case Summary:

A food scientist holding a Ph.D. in food science & technology and biological engineering from Malaysia hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to build an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. We thoroughly evaluated his research experience in the field of food science while preparing his petition case. His research focused on the microbiological safety of foods using engineering and microbiology principles and methods.

His research on the improvement of microbiological food safety has substantial merit and great importance because of its direct relevance to the development of enhanced food safety standards and pasteurization procedures.

Going forward, we noted our client’s publication record, peer-review experience, and citation count. His successful research works have inspired several of his peers. We recorded the accumulation of 109 citations from 12 peer-reviewed journal articles and one conference paper he published. Also, we determined that our client is an active member of the scientific community as a peer reviewer and conducted 1 review. Certainly, he is very knowledgeable in his field.

Moreover, our client managed to provide us four recommendation letters that he obtained from his peers and other experts working in the same field. According to one of his recommenders:

“[Client’s] proven expertise in the development and application of advanced food processing techniques holds especial value for the United States. It is therefore clear that this country stands to support his ongoing research by extending all concessions necessary to retain his unique scientific skills.”

Convincingly, the USCIS granted our client his NIW approval in 7 months and 12 days. The North America Immigration Law Group team would like to thank him for trusting our legal firm with his application and letting us be a part of this success story.
