Case Summary:

An expert quantitative researcher from Iran hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him file an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. With a Ph.D. in Crop and Soil Science and extensive experience immersed in agricultural management, our client had suitable credentials to qualify for the national interest waiver.

We worked diligently to include a wealth of information pertaining to our client’s various achievements. These included but were not limited to the 58 citations to his work, his 4 publications, and his research on refining methods for assessing soil conditions and evaluating the efficacy and feasibility of agricultural practices. Based on the information we gathered, we concluded that our client’s work progresses the nation’s understanding of large-scale cover cropping methods, which is an excellent practice for the agricultural industry. Additionally, his research efforts benefit the United States’ food stocks for the public, exported foodstuffs, and environmental protection efforts.

In our bid to present an airtight EB-2 NIW case to the USCIS, we urged our client to ask his peers to sign strong recommendation letters. Six expert agricultural managers agreed to lend their support, one of whom stated that our client’s efforts “… have made a huge impact within the scientific community and it is in the best interests of the United States government that he continue with his important research.” Another expert described him as “… a vital member of the agricultural community and his work has vastly improved the American agricultural system.”

The USCIS spent 8 months and 14 days adjudicating our client’s EB-2 NIW petition. The lengthy timeframe led us to raise a service request on our client’s behalf, leaving him ample time to focus on his important research. As the cherry on top of the cake, our client and his dependent recently received their green cards; they opted to file their I-485 applications while the EB-2 NIW petition was pending approval. Doing so allowed our client to trim down the overall wait time, and he even received both approval notices less than a month apart. We congratulate our client and his dependent for becoming permanent residents, and we thank them for placing their trust in us to help them achieve this goal.
