Client’s Testimonial:

“I want to express my sincere gratitude for all your work and dedication you put into my petition. As I mentioned in an earlier email, I am very satisfied with you and enjoyed working with you throughout the case preparation. I would definitely recommend Chen Immigration to my friends who need such services.”

On March 4th, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Appointee in the Field of High Energy Physics (Approval Notice).

General Field: High Energy Physics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Appointee

Country of Origin: Nepal

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Illinois

Approval Notice Date: March 4th, 2023

Processing Time: 10 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

There are several factors on which the merit of an EB2-NIW (National Interest Waiver) case is decided. Factors such as publication history, citation, and peer review records play a major role in the ease of victory for any case. So is also the role of funding sources, both government and private. The quality of research that these bodies or organizations accept for prestigious funds is very exclusive. So any NIW applicant who has been awarded major funding from a well-known organization itself ensures a favorable decision from the USCIS.

So, when an expert in the field of high-energy physics from Nepal came to us with his NIW request, we looked into his professional and academic career and found that along with other significant achievements he had obtained 14 major fundings from prestigious institutions globally. Some of these funding are from the National Science Foundation’s Nuclear Physics Program, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Physics, the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research, the German Research Foundation, the German Max Planck Society, the Italian Instituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare, the Swiss National Science Foundation, the Polish National Science Center, the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s John R. Evans Leaders Fund.

Other factors along with this one that we found useful for his application were as follows:

  • Details of his proposed endeavor: His proposed endeavor was to design and simulate advanced detectors for future high-energy and nuclear physics experiments to resolve challenges with data collection, analytics, and intelligent computing.
  • Importance of his proposed endeavor: His research advancing his proposed endeavor was of great importance because it directly contributes to progress in high energy and nuclear physics research, providing insights for advanced computing and understanding into the technology needed to explore new physics phenomena.
  • Publication, Citation, and Peer Review Record: His research has resulted in 11 peer-reviewed journal articles and 4 preprint articles and these publications have been cited a total of 120 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of high-energy physics.
  • Letters of Recommendation: His research had attracted the attention of other experts who were more than willing to furnish him with letters of recommendation supporting his claim to the NIW criteria.

So, when his approval came through in just 10 days, we knew that it was because of our team’s efforts and the premium processing upgrade which expedited his case. We are grateful to our client for choosing us and we look forward to working with him in the future.
