Success Stories: North America Immigration Law Group Obtains NIW Approval in Less Than 4 Months for a Senior Iranian Research Engineer in Electrical Engineering


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for your help.”

On October 8th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Senior Research Engineer in the Field of Electrical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Electrical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Senior Research Engineer

Country of Origin: Iran

Country of Residence at the Time of Filing: Canada

Approval Notice Date: October 8th, 2022

Processing Time: 3 months, 17 days

Case Summary:

The following is the list of items we keep in mind when building an EB2- NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition for our clients:

  • Details of proposed work in the field
  • Importance of their research for the globe, the country, and the industry
  • Publication, Citation, and Peer Review history indicating the academic worth
  • Funding information from reputed organizations within the U.S. and globally
  • Letters of recommendation from other experts
  • Evidence showing ongoing value and projected worth of their research for the future

So, when our Iranian client who was a senior research engineer in electrical engineering – power systems approached NAILG, we took every care to draw the above information from his documentary records. The result was the following:

  • His work has resulted in 8 peer-reviewed journal articles (6 of them first-authored) and 11 peer-reviewed conference papers (9 of them first-authored).
  • Not only has he successfully completed and published the results of his research in the field, but his work has also gone on to influence his peers. That is, these publications have been cited a massive total more than 1,500 times.
  • His 12 years of work experience also paid off in winning him approval by giving him an upper hand above other similar researchers in his field.
  • And finally, he also obtained 2 letters of support from other experts who knew his work and realized the value it had for the United States.

So, once our team had put together his petition and filed the application, we waited for the next 3 months and 17 days before we got his approval without an RFE. Our client was glad to have received his approval so soon and that too without much hassle. We are grateful to our client for choosing us and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
