Case Summary:

When a Ph.D. in entomology candidate hailing from India, currently positioned as a postdoctoral research associate approached us for filing her NIW (National Interest Waiver Petition), we prepared a strong case for her based on her academic and professional qualifications. Her petition packet included the following:

  • Her research has resulted in 9 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored), cited a total of 89 times according to Google Scholar.
  • She has been regularly invited to conduct peer reviews for elite journals and conferences and has completed at least 50 peer reviews to date.
  • Her study has been supported by funding from the United States Department of Agriculture Integrated Pest Management (USDA IPM) program and the North Central Soybean Research Program.

Moreover, her proposed endeavor is to examine the mechanisms driving insect physiology and identify molecular targets to aid in the development of pest management strategies. Her research has great substantial merit and national importance as it is relevant to the improvement of agricultural production and the development of effective pest control strategies.

In addition to that, North America Immigration Law Group has developed the most up-to-date winning strategies for the NIW category, which enable us to offer our “Approval or Refund” services to many of the NIW cases we take. However, there are certain prerequisites to be fulfilled by an individual including:

  • The foreign national must be in a position to advance the proposed endeavor.
  • The applicant must present evidence that the U.S. would benefit on balance to waive the job offer criteria for an EB-2.
  • A proposed endeavor, holding substantial merit and national importance.

Therefore, through our expertise and based on the above requirements, we prepared a well-grounded case for our client. Her research is further given detailed importance by her fellow experts in the field of entomology. Two out of the four remarked:

“[Client’s] pioneering study identifies a control strategy that relies on the manipulation of significant genes instead of ineffectual and environmentally hazardous pesticides. By clarifying the molecular mechanisms that produce morphological abnormalities in bed bugs, she advances the goal of eliminating the scourge of bed bugs in America without negatively impacting humans or beneficial insects.”

“Based on the ample information presented above, it is clear that [client] has engaged in groundbreaking research of vital importance to the field of bioagricultural sciences/ entomology and the interests of the United States. It is crucial to note that her ongoing research is of equal significance. As mentioned, her proven history of success, combined with her current position, situate her perfectly to make progress in this field.”

Consequently, her education, experience, expertise, record of publication and citation, and history of successful research in the field all indicate that our client is well-positioned to advance the proposed endeavor. She thus got a positive response in her favor from the adjudicating judge even after waiting for a longer duration of time. We are grateful to her for her continued belief in us.
