Case Summary:

With a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering and a firm grasp on the planning, estimation, and control of autonomous robotic systems, our client made for a suitable EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) candidate.

To prepare a convincing petition, we performed a detailed analysis of our client’s research projects and included the following information in the NIW packet:

  • His publication record of 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored) and 16 conference papers (10 of them first- or co-first-authored).
  • His citation record on Google Scholar stood at 231 citations at the time of filing the petition.
  • A mention of 40 peer reviews that he has conducted for highly acclaimed journals.
  • Recommendation letters that endorsed our client’s continued stay in the United States and supported our argument that he has time and again proved his mettle and skills.

As North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) was able to persuade the USCIS that our client’s research in his area is of great importance because it addresses fundamental limitations in autonomous robotic technology. This technology represents an important revolution in, among other things, industrial manufacturing, he received notification of NIW approval 5 months and 22 days after the petition was filed. We are pleased to have assisted our client in this important step in the green card process, and we thank him for choosing our law firm to be a part of his success story.
