On May 5th, 2017, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Senior Consultant/ Lecturer in the Field of Data Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Data Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Senior Consultant/ Lecturer

Country of Origin: Egypt

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Outside the US

Approval Notice Date: May 5th, 2017

Processing Time: 4 months, 8 days

Case Summary:

A senior consultant/lecturer based in Egypt hired North America Immigration Law Group to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. With a Ph.D. in Agricultural Economics and ample experience progressing the field of data science, we are pleased that the USCIS granted him the national interest.

With 3 peer-reviewed journal articles, 3 staff and working papers, and 2 technical reports, our client is armed with an impressive publication record. Not just that, his publications had been cited 35 times at the time of filing, proving the significance of his research on applied economics, econometric modeling, and predictive analytics to both dependent and independent data scientists around the world.

To support our argument that allowing our client to reside and conduct research in the US is in the nation’s best interest, we incorporated several recommendation letters into his petition dossier. These letters were contributed by other well-known professionals working in the field of data science, one of whom had this to say about our client: “Taken into consideration with the translational value of his own work, it is clear that [Client’s] work is of major value to the field and that he is an irreplaceable presence in the research sphere. It is thus necessary that [Client] be given this opportunity to continue his important and inventive research in the United States.”

We congratulate our client for securing the national interest waiver in exactly 4 months and 8 days. As he does not live in the US, he cannot file an I-485 application to adjust his status for permanent residence. Instead, he will undergo Immigrant Visa Processing (IVP) at the American embassy/consulate in Egypt. We wish him the best with this step and look forward to welcoming him into the US as a permanent resident.
