Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group was approached by a postdoctoral researcher to help him build an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. Equipped with a doctoral degree in the field of computer science and many years of solid experience in the same field, made him eligible for the EB-2 visa category. After reviewing his strong credentials, we proceeded to countersign the retainer agreement, and our precedence was to prove to the USCIS that our client qualified the national interest waiver requirements. Here are some of the highlighted key points which we presented to them :

Research Rendition: We noted that our client intends to continue his research on the design and construction of frameworks for analyzing and querying large linked data.

Assessing every aspect of his work concludes to be crucial because it provides new means of analyzing large-scale linked datasets and exploring natural language data, both of which are becoming increasingly prevalent in the United States’ computer science sector.

Publication, Citation, and Peer-Review Activity: We cited our client’s astounding publication and citation record. During filing the petition, his publication included 9 peer-reviewed journal and conference articles (3 of them first-authored), and these accumulated 191 citations.

In further confirmation of his acknowledged expertise in the field, he has also conducted 4 peer-reviews, including reviews for highly acclaimed journals. Our client’s elevated skills and abilities made it easy for us to move him closer to obtain the NIW approval.

Letters of Recommendation: We also comprised four recommendation letters in our EB-2 NIW petition packet and presented it to the USCIS verifying that our client is a boon to the United States. A well-known Principal Scientist demonstrated our client’s findings as:

“Computer scientists such as [our client] are needed to explore how these capabilities are applicable to modern problems, such as the identification of propaganda and fake news in social media. Controlling the spread of disinformation is increasingly important to national security in regions all around the world.”

One Step Closer to the Green Card:

The USCIS granted the EB-2 NIW petition approval to our client within 8 months. We congratulate our client on this quantum leap and thank him for preferring our services.
WeGreened team wishes our client all the luck for his future endeavors.
