Case Summary:

A postdoctoral researcher approached North America Immigration Law Group to construct an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Our client with a doctoral degree and extensive knowledge in the field of physics, hired us as he was aware of our proficient services provided for our clients achieving NIW petition approvals. Having stated that, our expert team commenced preparing his case after thoroughly judging his educational and professional credentials and soon we confirmed that we could help him obtain the national interest waiver approval. We added the following supporting information in his petition packet:

Ascertained our client’s research work as crucial to the United States:

We examined his research on developing new instrumentation and methods for discovering aspects of physics beyond the Standard Model, including instrumentation to enhance particle detection systems, generating applications including supporting the development of improved medical imaging technologies and semiconductor sensors, highlighting its great importance in improving the physics community’s understanding of the universe and laws of nature, while also generating benefits for applications in areas such as pharmaceutical development and designing semiconductors for smartphones and other electronic devices.

Recorded our client’s Publication and Citation Count:

Our client had gathered 3,632 citations, at the time of filing, from the 14 peer-reviewed journal articles (2 of them first-authored), 1 first-authored technical report, and 2 preprint articles he published. Furthermore, these articles have been published in the top-ranked journals in his field, which certainly expresses his peers’ recognition of the importance of his research work.

Affirming Peer-Review experience:

In addition, we noted his knowledge and expertise has proved him to be one of the most highly esteemed researchers in the field of high energy physics as he has been regularly requested to conduct peer review for first class journals, and he had completed at least 2 peer reviews at the time of filing.

Incorporated Letters of Recommendation:

We also compiled four recommendation letters in our client’s EB-2 petition, obtained by him from other recognized researchers in the field. One of them contributed the below stated words:

“[Client] has demonstrated his innovation in the field of high energy physics, and continues to pave the way for the development of valuable new kind of detectors. It is therefore clear that his continued presence in the research community of the United States represents a definite benefit for the field and the nation as a whole.”


Finally, our client obtained the EB-2 NIW petition approval within 8 months. USCIS was convinced of our client’s proposed intent and approved his case successfully, moving him one big step closer to the green card process. Our team sincerely thank him for connecting with us and congratulate him for advancing his prospective research.
