Case Summary:

A postdoctoral researcher based in California hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Once we were retained, our dedicated 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 7 months.

After months of hard work, we managed to gather information regarding our client’s work on integrated circuit design for wireless communications. We put together a solid case that consisted of an array of information. This included data on our client’s 7 peer-reviewed articles (6 of them first-authored), 2 patents and the 40 times his work was cited. We also noted the 20 times our client judged the work of his peers.

With a PhD in microelectronics and many years of experience working in the field of electrical engineering, our client is a shoo-in for the National Interest Waiver. We demonstrated that our client’s research in his area is of great importance because it lays the groundwork for faster wireless communications networks, which in turn encourages greater use of important mobile internet applications such as e-banking. The contributions made by our client to wireless technology serve the cause of making America’s wireless network one of the most technologically advanced in the world.

Besides that, we also included 5 recommendation letters contributed by other experts in the field. These letters advocated for the approval of our client’s NIW petition and they reiterated the significance of his work to the United States. According to one of these recommenders: “It is clear that his work has inspired new innovation in electrical engineering, and the current implementation of his work has benefited business and military security in the United States of America. By improving radiofrequency identification systems, [client] has significantly changed the scholarly approach to counterfeit protection and contributed to making the United States of America a more secure nation.”

We congratulate our client on his NIW case approval and we thank him for choosing North America Immigration Law Group ( to represent his case. We wish him the best as he continues to work in the United States.
