Case Summary:

One of our most esteemed clients visualized himself achieving his professional goals in the United States without having to worry about fielding more Requests for Evidence (RFE). His dream came true when the North America Immigration Law Group agreed to help him secure the approval of his NIW petition without any hurdles. Our diligent team looked over his extensive research background and strong qualifications in the materials science field he chose. As a result, we highlighted our client’s remarkable success story, in which we assisted him in acquiring a National Interest Waiver in just 5 days without encountering an RFE.

We added the following information to his NIW petition packet:

The Client’s Proposed Endeavor

As an expert in the field of materials science, our client proposed to continue his research on developing technologies for improving the efficiency, power, stability, safety, and performance of batteries to transition to clean, renewable energy, achieve a sustainable economy, and mitigate the progress of climate change.

The Great Substantial Merit and National importance of his research

We deduced that his research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because it addresses fundamental challenges in the realm of battery technology and advancing economic growth.

Funding Support

It is worth noting that his study has received funding from several reputable organizations, such as the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the National Key Research and Development Programmes (NKPs) of China, and the Science and Technology Program of the State Grid Corporation of China. This funding supports projects that advance the nation’s health and enhance socioeconomic prosperity, especially through energy security. Therefore, our client’s research evidently supports the interests of the United States electrical well-being and the national grid.

Publishing, Citation, and Peer-Reviews Experience

In addition, we underscored that he has published 6 peer-reviewed journal articles (3 of them first-authored) and 1 published patent in no fewer than 6 highly ranked peer-reviewed journals. His peers have cited his work 104 times, indicating both the originality and significance of his methods and results. He has also completed 2 peer reviews. This compelling evidence unequivocally establishes his sincere and proactive engagement in evaluating the work of fellow experts in the field.

Achieved Victory

The adjudication officers acknowledged the unquestionable significance of our client’s proposed endeavors which have bolstered the country’s economy and enabled the establishment of sustainable infrastructure for a stable and clean future. Therefore, we are glad that USCIS granted him his NIW approval. We would like to express our gratitude to our client for his cordial support throughout the NIW petition preparation process. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.
