Case Summary:

With a master’s degree and years of experience working in the field of computer science, our client is certainly a force to be reckoned with. His various accomplishments in the field have made him a suitable candidate for the national interest waiver. After North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf, the USCIS only spent 30 days adjudicating his case before granting their approval (it usually takes them between 4-9 months).

What makes our client special?

In order to prove to the USCIS that our client is the cream of the crop, we highlighted his 7 publications and the 38 citations gathered from his work. We also carefully documented his work on theoretical problems in combinatorial optimization. We proved that his research results have directly contributed to the optimization of search engines, the efficiency of network design, and the improvement of data storage and retrieval. Additionally, we concluded that our client’s network design research efforts are contributing to the United States’ growing technological sector and the improvement of efficacy of communication networks.

To back up our argument, we incorporated recommendation letters contributed by other experts working in the field of computer science. These experts signed off on strong statements such as these:

“In consideration of the translational value of his own work, it is clear that [Client’s] work is of major import to the field, and that he is an irreplaceable scientist in the research sphere.”

“[Client’s] steady stream of major achievements in sublinear algorithms and theoretical computing has propelled him to the forefront of a specialized and focused field.”

“His academic career has transformed him into an exemplary researcher who has solved some of the most intricate problems in the fields of algorithm design, theoretical computing, graph theory, and combinatorics.”

We congratulate our client for obtaining the national interest waiver. He is now significantly closer to green card success, and we wish him the best as he adjusts his status for permanent residence by filing an I-485 application.
