Client’s Testimonial:

“Here, I want to thank you for all the services your firm provided. I was totally surprised with all the services you offered. Thank you so much!”

On November 18th, 2020, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Transportation Engineer in the Field of Transportation Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Transportation Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Transportation Engineer

Country of Origin: Iran

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: November 18th, 2020

Processing Time: 11 months

Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in transportation engineering, a transportation engineer from Iran engaged our legal firm’s services to assist him in documenting an I-140 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition, representing his case. While filing for his case, we analyzed his initiated research on the development of improved guidelines for the operational analysis of two-lane highways. His work in this area seems of great importance because it addresses traffic congestion, which produces a range of negative effects, including air pollution, injury, and death. He has focused primarily on understanding how to improve two-lane highways.

After a thorough evaluation of his credentials, we emphasized as much information as we could in our client’s EB-2 petition packet for the adjudicating panel. Our aim was to establish that he deserved the national interest waiver. Here are some of the key bits that we incorporated into the presentation:

Publication, Citation Count, and Peer- Review Experience:

We entered his publications record which garnered 29 citations from the 7 peer-reviewed journal articles, 4 peer-reviewed conference articles (3 of them first-authored), 2 first-authored conference abstracts, 2 first-authored conference articles accepted for presentation, one research report, and 3 conference articles that were also published as journal articles, thereby demonstrating that these publications are publicly acknowledged and looked upon in the field of transportation engineering. Many of our client’s writings have been among the most-cited in the field.

Also, we observed that he had already conducted 6 reviews at the time of filing, signifying his important contribution to the scientific community as an active peer reviewer.

Recommendation Letters:

To corroboration of his case further, we incorporated five recommendation letters gathered by our client from his fellow experts in the field. One of the recommenders contributed the below said words:

“[Client] embodies all of the traits of an expert researcher, the most important of which is the ability to produce impactful research. This is demonstrated by the citation of his research by fellow scholars. His peers have come to rely on his research as a resource crucial to the completion and success of related scholarly undertakings. For this reason, he has become an influential and irreplaceable researcher. In my professional opinion, restricting his ability to conduct research would be detrimental to the field of transportation engineering in the United States.”

Coming to the Final Step:

With our years of extensive experience, no wonder that USCIS once again approved our well-documented EB-2 NIW petition. Also, we would like to congratulate him on achieving the I-485 approval. We sincerely thank our client for choosing North America Immigration Law Group in associating with us for his NIW petition and retaining us again for his I-485 as well.
