Case Summary:

An applied scientist from Taiwan engaged the efficient services of North America Immigration Law Group ( to support him in filing an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Before preparing his case, our team properly evaluated his doctoral degree in Statistics and the preferred research in the field of data science. After adjudicating the same, we were certain that our client is qualified to meet NIW petition approval requirements. Thus, we highlighted the below stated details in his EB-2 NIW application to represent it to the USCIS:

  • We documented his research summary which concerns designing and deploying machine learning models in order to improve machine learning-based technology and its applications. His research is of great importance because it is conducive to technological advancement.
  • Also, we noted the 4 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored) and 3 peer-reviewed conference articles (1 of them first-authored) published by him which amassed 139 citations. In addition, our client’s papers have been among the most-cited in the field, suggesting his indigenous methods and results.
  • Moreover, at the time of filing, our client had already analyzed the work of his peers 10 times, implying his firm position in the field.
  • Also, we included four recommendation letters in our EB-2 NIW petition packet to strengthen our client’s research further. Our client got four recommendation letters signed by other well-known experts in the field, amply endorsed his credentials. two of the recommenders expressed:

“[Our client] develops methods for testing the reliability of machine learning programs, thereby ensuring that industry growth is the result of improvements in the underlying technology rather than speculative frenzy. He is at the forefront of this research and plays an important role in developing this exciting new technology.”

“… [client] is an important figure in data science whose research is of intrinsic
value because of the thoughtful and effective way it addresses important problems
related to the treatment of chronic disease.”

With our experience of securing over 16,000 I-140 approvals, we were able to persuade the USCIS that our client’s findings contribute to the United States’ economy and he was granted the national interest waiver approval. We congratulate our client on this breakthrough and thank him for having faith in us and working with us.
