General Field: Virology
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher
Country of Origin: Taiwan
State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California
Approval Notice Date: June 4th, 2020
Processing Time: 4 months and 17 days
A postdoctoral researcher from Taiwan hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to prepare and file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. In preparing our client’s petition dossier, we made sure to collect as much information as we could on his work in the field of virology. We determined that our client’s research is focused specifically on the functions of regulatory enzymes and their connection to cancer prevention.
Based on Matter of Dhanasar (the analytical framework for assessing eligibility for “national interest waivers”), the USCIS was looking out for the following information in our client’s petition packet:
- The foreign national is a member of the professions holding an advanced degree;
- The foreign national’s proposed endeavor have both substantial merit and national importance;
- The foreign national is well positioned to advance the proposed endeavor;
- On balance, it would be beneficial to the United States to waive the job offer and labor certification requirements.
To convince the USCIS that our client deserved to move one step closer to US permanent residency, we detailed the 182 citations collected from his work, the 8 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored) and 1 first-authored book chapter. We also included words of support contributed by 4 of his peers, one of whom stated:
“Given the high mortality rate of those with lung cancer, [client’s] continued research into the mechanisms by which viruses, tumor cells, and protein factors affect cancer growth plays a pivotal role in how the global research community thinks about developing and fine-tuning key lung cancer treatments such as immunotherapy.”
With our experience of securing over 16,000 I-140 approvals, we were able to persuade the USCIS that our client’s research efforts are contributing to the United States’ economy and he was granted the national interest waiver 4 months and 17 days after his case was filed. We congratulate him for surpassing this major milestone and we thank him for trusting North America Immigration Law Group to be a part of his journey.
