Success Stories: NIW Petition for Postdoctoral Research Associate from Russia Approved in Just 29 Days


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for your very professional job!”

On February 20th, 2016, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Field of Radiochemistry (Approval Notice).

General Field: Radiochemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Research Associate

Country of Origin: Russia

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: February 20th, 2016

Processing Time: 29 days


Case Summary: 

The adjudicating officers at TSC only spent 29 days reviewing our client’s EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition before approving it (the average processing time is between 4-9 months). We strongly believe that a combination of our client’s impressive qualifications and our well-thought-out NIW petition dossier persuaded the USCIS to approve this case. In short, our client is now more than halfway through the complex two-step green card process. He recently retained our services to help him with the final leg of his green card journey. We sincerely look forward to helping him attain permanent residency.

In preparing this EB-2 NIW petition, we worked diligently to detail our client’s copious professional triumphs. We highlighted his 21 journal articles and conference presentations, and documented the nearly 600 citations to his work. Furthermore, we established that his studies on the synthesis and chemical investigation of superheavy elements—those with an atomic number equal to or greater than 104—are of great importance to the United States. We demonstrated that by contributing to novel applications of superheavy elements in nuclear medicine, nuclear power, and nuclear defense, our client is directly impacting the United States nuclear power industries, and that only a handful of other radiochemists can attain comparable research results.

To bolster our NIW petition, we included several recommendation letters provided by other experts in our client’s field of radiochemistry. One of these letters stated that “Having completed independent characterizations of four different elements, [Client] has elevated himself to a very high tier in nuclear chemistry and radiochemistry. In this way, we can be assured that he is vastly more qualified than other nuclear and radiochemists.”

This EB-2 NIW petition approval is an encouraging example of North America Immigration Law Group’s pledge to help every client get one step closer to their green card.
