Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you so much for your help!”

On January 17th, 2023, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Healthcare Epidemiologist in the Field of Public Health (Approval Notice).

General Field: Public Health

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Healthcare Epidemiologist

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Nebraska

Approval Notice Date: January 17th, 2023

Processing Time: 2 months, 3 days

Case Summary:

The I-140 NIW or National Interest Waiver is a kind of immigrant visa for those individuals who want to continue to work in the U.S. but do not have a permanent job offer or cannot apply for a labor certification due to the nature of their work, etc. Over the years, our firm has gained ample expertise in dealing with NIW cases to understand the inroads of the adjudication process. So when we got an NIW request from an expert in public health, we first tried to find out whether he was eligible for the category or not. Once we had ensured this and signed the retainer with him, we began collecting data about his achievements and found the following:

  • His proposed endeavor is to work on utilizing epidemiology and disease surveillance techniques in order to develop and improve infectious disease surveillance systems for enhanced responses to disease outbreaks.
  • His research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it highlights areas that are critical in counteracting infectious diseases and subsequently provides solutions that improve these areas. Disease surveillance is integral in evaluating the effectiveness of control and preventative health measures as well as identifying high-risk populations or areas to target interventions.
  • His proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States since when COVID-19 was reported to be stateside, the response to the pandemic in the United States was inadequate. His research is thus directly aligned with the United States as he has researched COVID-19 surveillance systems along with other public health concerns, providing insights that are crucial for addressing gaps in the nation’s ability to respond adequately to the threat of infectious diseases.
  • It was due to its clear national importance that his research was supported with funding from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health due to its importance in elucidating unsafe practices on farm and ranch operations.
  • Additionally, due to his knowledge and expertise in disease surveillance systems, he has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for authoritative journals where he has completed at least 8 reviews.
  • His research has resulted in 7 peer-reviewed journal articles (1 of them first-authored and 1 of them co-first-authored) and they have been cited a total of 34 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of public health.

Furthermore, he has studied the utilization of epidemiology and disease surveillance techniques in order to develop and improve infectious disease surveillance systems for enhanced responses to disease outbreaks for 12 years. This has given him the necessary expertise to continue his research in the field of public health.

We are happy to know that his case got approved in just 2 months and 3 days’ time. This was mostly due to our case preparation strategy and of course due to his credentials.
