Success Stories: Pharmacology Expert in Iran with 6 Citations Secures NIW Approval and Is Now Ready for Immigrant Visa Processing


Client’s Testimonial:

“Many thanks for your email.”

On April 29th, 2017, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Petitioner in the Field of Pharmacology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Pharmacology

Country of Origin: Iran

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Outside the US

Approval Notice Date: April 29th, 2017

Processing Time: 13 months, 4 days

Case Summary:

Based in Iran, our client has extensive experience in the field of pharmacology and is undoubtedly an outstanding researcher. Her consistent contributions to the field made her a suitable candidate for EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver), and after determining that we could help her build a solid case, we gathered an array of evidence to support the petition.

Collecting relevant information:

In a nutshell, we had to prove that our client’s work is of national interest and intrinsically valuable to the United States. We proved this by detailing her 6 publications and the 6 times they were cited. Further, we detailed our client’s work on neuronal network communication and demonstrated that her research results have directly contributed to drug development and healthcare. Additionally, we established that her neurodegenerative disease research efforts are contributing to the United States’ medical research community and healthcare system.

As with all our clients, we advised her on the process of selecting recommenders and obtaining their testimonials. These testimonials supported the approval of our client’s NIW petition and contained strong statements such as these:

  • “As her research has already proven beneficial, I am sure that she will continue to provide unique advantages to the medical community through her hard work.”
  • “I am positive that she will only continue to provide scientific advancement to the nation.”
  • “As one of the most talented researchers in her field, it would only serve as a detriment to the United States to lose her research.”

Despite the long wait (13 months and 4 days), we are pleased that our client finally obtained NIW petition approval. As she does not reside in the US, she cannot file an I-485 application to adjust her status for permanent residence. Instead, she must undergo Immigrant Visa Processing (IVP). Since there is no US embassy or consulate in Iran, our client must undergo IVP at one of the neighboring countries. We thank her for retaining our IVP services, and we look forward to helping her obtain a green card.
