“Thank you for your help! It is so grateful to have your help throughout the NIW application!… It is a tough year for us NIW applicants. I am so glad that I made the right decision to apply green card via WeGreened team!”
On September 14th, 2017, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Field of Molecular Microbiology (Approval Notice).
General Field: Molecular Microbiology
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Research Associate
Country of Origin: Taiwan
State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Missouri
Approval Notice Date: September 14th, 2017
Processing Time: 11 months, 11 days
A postdoctoral research associate specializing in the field of molecular microbiology hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him secure the national interest waiver. We spent months preparing a strong EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) case for him and exactly 11 months and 11 days after it was filed, he received notification of petition approval.
With a Ph.D. Microbiology and extensive research experience in the bag, it came as no surprise that the USCIS saw merit in allowing our client to continue his work in the US. As part of our legal strategy, we highlighted his various career achievements such as the 52 citations collected from his 3 publications. We also detailed his investigations on the molecular virology and microbial pathogenesis of human cytomegalovirus.
In a bid to further fortify our client’s Niw Petition, we helped him select several recommenders who could advocate for the approval of his case. We made sure that these recommenders were familiar with his research and that they were well-known experts in the field. Once we narrowed down suitable recommenders, our client contacted them for recommendation letters. This is a statement extracted from one of these letters: “The widespread impact of his work makes it obvious that the U.S. and global research community would face huge obstacles without [Client’s] continued research efforts.”
As we were able to demonstrate to the USCIS that our client’s research results directly contribute to American healthcare, pharmaceutical research, and molecular virology as a whole, they approved his NIW petition. We are thrilled that we helped our client overcome the first hurdle in the green card process, and we wish him the best as he adjusts his status for permanent residence with the help of our DIY Packet.
