Country of Origin: Taiwan

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Case Summary:

An architect (scientist) from Taiwan hired NAmILG to file an NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition on his behalf. Our client with a Ph.D. in electronics engineering displayed surpassing knowledge and skills in the same field. After gathering the required documents, our expert team and attorneys began constructing a convincing case for him, as we were determined to lead him to the national interest waiver success. Exactly 6 months and 23 days after we filed his case, he received the NIW approval without any additional request for further evidence. Moreover, the best thing is our client retained our services for his I-129 and I-485 applications as well. Since we have extensive experience in building more than one petition for our clients to move them closer to achieve their green card, in this case, we did the same by outlining the most relevant key points to get him the O1A approval.

We already had a notion of his research work in the field of electronics engineering so even though I-140 NIW and I-129 O1A are two unique visa categories, we added some of the information which was similar in both the petition packets in terms of:

  • His intended research focused on the development of novel advanced parameter extraction methodologies. It seems to address some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding how various parameters affect device performance as changes are made to hardware architecture.
  • The 358 citations, which are gathered from the 25 peer-reviewed scientific articles he published in the topmost prestigious journals in his chosen field, confirming his publications have been recognized as some of the best in the field. Also, a number of his articles have been cited at a much higher rate than those of other researchers in the field. Not only his publication and citation records are commendable but he had also proved to be an extraordinary member of the scientific community in the field by conducting 5 peer reviews. Only top-level experts in their field are invited to perform this significant review work, thus this further demonstrates his important position in the field.

Our client also obtained 4 written advisory opinions, corroborating that his findings hold tangible value for other developments in his field. We added all these letters to our petition packet to bolster his case. One of the recommenders contributed the following lines:

“[Client’s] expertise in compact modeling holds tremendous value for the integrated circuits industry at large… Moreover, considering the practical value of his compact modeling discoveries for the electronic design automation industry in the United States, among other areas, he has clearly proven himself to be an indispensable asset for ongoing and future design innovations in his field.”

Our client received the O1A approval in just 11 days that too without opting for premium processing service, it is an outstanding instance for our law firm. Therefore, we cordially thank him for choosing the North America Immigration Law Group for preparing his I-140, I-129, and I-485 applications. We truly appreciate his kind cooperation with us, and now await his I-485 approval.
