Success Stories: Thanks to Our Experts at NAILG, an Indian Scientist Working in Organic Chemistry Obtains NIW Confirmation without RFE


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thanks for your time and help with the application. I greatly appreciate Chen Immigration team’s time and help with the NIW application. They are very clear and time-bound in their process. They did a thorough review of my qualifications and wrote a solid application letter that helped my application go through approval without an RFE. For this reason, I am considering to go with them instead of my company’s immigration specialist to file another I-140 under EB1B category.”

On April 20th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Scientist in the Field of Organic Chemistry (Approval Notice).

General Field: Organic Chemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Scientist

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: April 20th, 2022

Processing Time: 12 months, 4 days

Case Summary:

The I-140 NIW demands clear proof of the applicant’s work’s significance to the United States and on confirmation of this provides immunity from the labor certification requirements and job offer requirement, thus allowing the petitioner to continue living and working in the country as a nonimmigrant. The following data was collected for the NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition of an Indian scientist in organic chemistry:

  • As an expert in the field of organic chemistry, his proposed endeavor is to develop state-of-the-art materials and technologies for redox flow batteries and lithium-ion batteries to address current and future transportation and grid energy storage challenges.
  • His research advancing his proposed endeavor is of great importance because of its value to the organic and flexible electronics market.
  • His continued developments in organic electronics technology are vital to the progress of this economically significant industry, illustrating the inherent significance of his research.
  • His proposed endeavor also has broad implications for the United States, particularly for increasing the usage and efficiency of solar cells, and related devices.
  • Due to its clear national importance, he has worked on critical research that has in fact been supported with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), which allocates more than $8 billion annually to funding research at American educational institutions, and the Department of Energy.
  • He has also completed at least 3 reviews to date.
  • His research has resulted in 9 peer-reviewed journal articles.
  • These publications have been cited a total of 148 times according to Google Scholar, thereby demonstrating that these publications are widely recognized and relied upon in the field of organic chemistry.
  • He has pursued research directly related to his proposed endeavor of developing materials and technologies for advanced batteries to address transportation and grid energy storage challenges for 5 years.
  • He has at least 2 letters of recommendation from other experts who could vouch for his work in the field.

Thus, these pieces of evidence helped us to show that our client’s research on developing materials and technologies for advanced batteries to address transportation and grid energy storage challenges holds significant value for renewable energy solutions and organic and flexible electronics hold immense potential for the United States and the world and should thus be allowed to continue on American soil.

We are glad to have been a part of his success story and have won him the NIW approval, we look forward to furthering collaborations with him in the future. Our team wishes him all the best in future endeavors.
