Case Summary:

A Ph.D. candidate in the electrical and computer engineering field hired North America Immigration Law Group to file an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. We thoroughly investigated whether he was eligible for the EB-2 NIW visa category because we are a committed firm that has successfully petitioned over 32,000 employment-based visa cases. When we looked over his credentials, we discovered that our client not only had an M.Sc. in electrical and computer engineering but also a list of publications and peer review experience.

We noted that his research resulted in at least 2 first-authored conference articles, 1 first-authored peer-reviewed journal article, and 2 first-authored technical reports to date. He also held a noteworthy citation record of 20 citations assembled from several other expert researchers in the field according to the Google Scholar tool. This gave us confidence in the caliber of his studies in his chosen field.

In addition, we highlighted that he has been asked to serve as a peer reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, a reputable journal in the industry, because of his knowledge and proficiency in artificial intelligence, networked sensors, and sensing. To date, he has completed at least 3 reviews. Thus, he is regarded as extremely competent in the field.

Furthermore, his research work holds national importance to the United States of America as his proposed endeavor is on designing cutting-edge artificial intelligence algorithms for automating human and heuristic processes to improve their efficiency and accuracy. After carefully reviewing his research, we were certain that it is extremely important to the United States because it contributes to advancing AI automation of human processes central to fostering educational improvements.

As one of the research groups pointed out, our client has not only finished and published the results of his research in the field, but his research also significantly influences the comprehension of topics by other researchers. Additionally, his algorithm development yields improved efficiency and accuracy in automated systems. Hence, there is no question that our client’s contributions to artificial intelligence development benefit the U.S.

With great pride, we are writing that the USCIS approved our client’s I-140 NIW petition in just 6 days, based on our thorough counsel regarding his petition. This was made possible by our diligent team as well as the premium processing upgrade. We sincerely appreciate our client’s unshakable confidence in our skills. We wish him the best of luck in all of his future endeavors.
