Success Stories: NIW Petition Approved by Nebraska Service Center for Iranian Petitioner in Illinois in the Field of Environmental Engineering

Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much! I have already recommended you to my friends and I will share my experience working with you…”

On May 2nd, 2016, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Petitioner in the Field of Environmental Engineering (Approval Notice).


General Field: Environmental Engineering

Country of Origin: Iran

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Illinois

Approval Notice Date: May 2nd, 2016

Processing Time: 8 months, 20 days

Case Summary:

Last year, North America Immigration Law Group ( helped an environmental engineering expert from Iran acquire an EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) petition. Our client’s enduring ambition and outstanding education have led him to become a leader in the field. When we filed the case, our client’s investigations had led to the publication of 8 journal articles, 1 patent, and 23 conference papers and presentations. Furthermore, his work had accumulated 105 citations at the time of filing—an impressive figure that hinted at his influence over other environmental engineers.

Bolstering the petition:

As with all other legal battles, we had to work diligently to build a strong case for our client. We were tasked with proving that he deserved the national interest waiver and we carried out our job effectively and in a timely manner. Besides detailing our client’s professional achievements, we also incorporated recommendation letters signed by other experts in the field. These experts detailed everything from our client’s doctorate in environmental engineering to his research ventures on air quality engineering. Here is a quote from one of these letters: “[Client’s] work in the field of environmental engineering is of immeasurable importance. The projects that [Client] has been involved in not only bring us a deeper understanding of how materials and technology can be improved in unique ways, but they serve to bolster larger issues of public health and the careful care of our environment. This is essential in the United States as both of those issues are seen as main priorities by both the government and the public.”

Thanks to the four recommendation letters that our client obtained, as well as the research summary that he provided us so that we could better understand his work, we were able to conclude that our client is an asset to the nation. We demonstrated that his work directly contributes to many industries in the United States since many industrial processes (such as coating and painting processes) produce harmful air pollutants that pose a health risk, especially for workers in those industries. Additionally, his research efforts are advancing the United States’ ability to successfully deal with toxic gases that can be used in terrorist attacks.

Securing petition approval:

We congratulate our client for surpassing this important milestone in the lengthy green card process. Thanks to his EB-2 NIW petition approval, he is now one step closer to green card success. We wish him well as he continues to carry out environmental engineering fieldwork and we thank him for working with North America Immigration Law Group (
