An Analysis of NIW Cases Approved from July to September 2010


BY Zhang Associates, P.C. [ October 23, 2010 at 11:00:10 ]

From July to September 2010, our firm received 37 NIW case approvals. USCIS approved 32 of these cases without a request for evidence. Thus,from January to September 2010, our firm received 168 NIW case approvals. In addition, from January to September 2010, our firm also received 127 EB-1 case approvals.

Out of the 37 NIW cases approved in the past three months, most applicants had a Ph. D. However, 5 of these applicants, or approximately 14%, only had a Master’s degree. Furthermore, we had one applicant who has a Ph.D. degree in Music and works as a pianist. Some applicants do postdoctoral research in agriculture or education fields. As these areas are less saturated than other more popular fields like the medical sciences, applicants are not only competing against a smaller pool, but more than likely, one not as strong. Similarly, those who work in fields related to medicine and biology are forced to compete with a large number of applicants. Of which, USCIS can only approve the strongest.

Those who work as a “postdoctoral researcher”, “research assistant/associate/fellow” or any other similar title mainly conduct research, produce papers, and attend conferences. Because of the nature of scientific work, such applicants find it easier to show that they have exerted national influence and sustained a past record of achievement through more objective evidence (i.e. citations, downloads, commercialization of work, etc). Of course, this should not discourage you from applying if you feel you lack such evidence. On the contrary, each case varies and USCIS could deem your particular qualifications and skill set to be of intrinsic merit to the United States. As shown above, USCIS does not adjudicate petitions solely on the basis of concrete numbers. With our highly experienced attorneys, we will help you highlight your strongest professional assets, while downplaying your weaker ones.

In addition to the above, we have also compiled other relevant data from our sample. Among the sample of approved applicants, most conduct research in Engineering, Medical, and Biology related fields while a few approved applicants also work in Agriculture, Education, and Physics related fields. The average number of journal papers published among these applicants was 9. The average number of citations was 38. The average processing time for these applicants was 126 days or more than four months. The longest it took to approve an application was 451 days, while the shortest was 61 days. USCIS aims to adjudicate National Interest Waiver petitions in 4 months. However, the national average for processing NIW applications is around 12.3 months. Before the economic downturn, it was, in our personal experience, much easier for NIW petitioners to receive approval. Now, with less domestic jobs available for U.S. citizens, USCIS has experienced delays in processing NIW applications. Consequently, we have received less NIW approvals. From January to March 2010, our firm received 93 NIW case approvals. From April to June 2010, our firm only received 38 NIW case approvals. From July to September 2010, our firm received 37 NIW case approvals.

Again, before you start the application process, it is imperative that you consult a highly trained legal professional, particularly since USCIS has experienced delays in processing NIW applications. By consulting with an attorney at our firm, you will learn not only learn about your options, but also specific application strategies for your immigration needs.

For more information on the 37 NIW cases approved from July to September 2010, please refer to the table below.
