General Field: Chemical Physics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: PhD candidate

Country of Origin: Iran

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Ohio

Approval Notice Date: September 16th, 2019

Processing Time: 5 months, 25 days

Case Summary:

An Iranian PhD Candidate in the field of Chemical Physics reached out to North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Thanks to our experience of securing nearly 15,000 I-140 approvals, we determined that he was a good fit for this category after reviewing his CV and credentials.

Our client’s research focuses on liquid crystals molecules that have special properties valuable to transparent liquid crystal displays (LCDs). His research deals with liquid crystal display (LCD) technologies, which have become ubiquitous in all phases of daily life. LCDs are crucial components of modern TVs, computer monitors, digital cameras, touchscreens, smartphones, gaming devices, and much more. His history of improving this technology is therefore important to advancing a huge number of technologies on which people have come to rely.

To support our argument that our client merits a national interest waiver, we submitted evidence of his impressive publication. At the time we filed his case, our client has published 9 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored) and collected 27 citations; thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of chemical physics.

In a bid to further fortify our client’s NIW petition, we incorporated six recommendation letters into his petition dossier. We believe that the recommendation letters signed by other well-known researchers played an important role in securing petition approval as they provided the USCIS with subjective evidence that our client is widely respected within the scientific community. For instance, this is what one of the recommenders noted in his letter of support: “I heartedly endorse [client]’s ongoing research in the United States…If he were to no longer work in the United States, I am confident in stating that advancements in chemical physics would be impeded.”

Less than six months after we filed the petition for him, the USCIS sent him notification that his petition was approved. We are pleased that our hard work paid off. We congratulate our client on overcoming this great hurdle, and we wish him the best as he continues to carry out impactful research in the United States.
