Success Story: EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) Approval for Laboratory Manager without PhD

Client’s testimonial:

Turning an impossible case to DONE! Is what I can say about [Chen Immigration Team]. They got my NIW approved. They listened to the situation, did not shy away from the challenge and worked with the data to provide a solid case and argument to have my impossible NIW become DONE. I have received my NIW approval on December 11th, 2012 which is 12 months after filling. The Request for additional evidence was carried out with the outmost accuracy and efficiency to satisfy the requirements. It was a pleasure working with [Chen Immigration Team] on my NIW and I would recommend them to anyone who want their case to go on smoothly.

Recently, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) for a Researcher in the field of Biotechnology. (Approval Notice)

Case Summary:

It is important to highlight, the credentials that are typically associated with NIW (National Interest Waiver) petitions include the prevalence of exceptional ability and or an advanced degree for the petitioner. Although an advanced degree typically pertains to a doctorate in the field of endeavor, not every candidate requires a PhD in order to have their petition approved.

In this specific case, the petitioner had achieved Master degrees in both Chemistry and Business Administration. Although a lack of doctorate may seem like a disadvantage, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates used this diverse educational background to reinforce the optimal foundation created for this client’s position as a Laboratory Manager.

As NIW (National Interest Waiver) petitions require the establishment of a substantial intrinsic merit associated with the client’s work and its value towards the national interest, it is vital that the evidence submitted for each petition adequately highlights this information. In order to meet these requirements, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates explained this client’s research pertaining to the fields of Bioanalytical Chemistry and Biotechnology and the important application of research pertaining to creation of therapeutic drugs used to treat cancer patients.

In addition, considering this petitioner had only 13 total citations over 5 published papers, it was important for the value of his scientific contributions be highlighted by respected experts in numerous applicable fields. In order to do this affectively, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates drafted six independent recommendation letters for the review, edit, and signature of this clients recommenders. These letters explained that the client’s work, although not heavily sighted, has been crucial for the advancements of several fields, as well as how this work has played an important role to be utilized in the near future to significantly benefit the nation.

Using this proven strategy, while correctly articulating the importance surrounding this client’s valued work towards the national interest, we at Chen Immigration Law Associates were able to secure approval for this petition.

With this in consideration, it is important to emphasize that the processes and expertise practiced by Chen Immigration Law Associates. Not only do we develop the best possible strategies for each case, but we execute these strategies with the utmost effectiveness!
