Green Card Success – Liron, South African Blogger

Liron Banner

Liron is an award-winning technology blogger from South Africa but, given the ever-changing landscape of the technology industry, ‘blogging’ is still a fairly new talent and it took some convincing to show US Immigration exactly how influential Liron is in the technology industry.

EB1 Green Card Success - Liron, Blogger - South Africa

EB1 Green Card Success – Liron, Blogger – South Africa

What Evidence do I Need for an EB1?

Writing as ‘The Techie Guy,’ Liron’s technology blog outlines the newest and best technology, provides product reviews, and gives tutorials on how to use technology. The Techie Guy became so popular and important that it was named the Best Science and Technology Blog by the South African Blog Awards for three straight years (2012 – 2014), as well as the Best Advice Blog on the African continent. These awards were the cornerstones for Liron’s case, in which he was presented as a technology expert.

The Techie Guy is only one part of Liron’s story; Liron also serves as a regular contributor to CNBC Africa, discussing the hot topics in technology and business. Liron’s name has become synonymous with technology – both on the African continent and beyond.

Liron’s success has sent him around the world, where technology leaders such as Samsung send him to conferences to evaluate the newest technology. With Liron’s report these companies can make decisions about their new products and services, putting Liron in the position of someone who can truly define how the industry is shaped.

What is the EB1 Process Like?

Despite Liron’s impressive achievements and deep body of work, he struggled to get his EB1 approved because US Immigration was unable to see past its own perception of a ‘blogger’ as someone at home in their living room sending opinions into cyberspace.

“Make no mistake, the process is draining. It is emotionally draining and a roller coaster of ups and downs,” Liron said. “Got to keep the eye on the prize and that it will be worth it in the end.”

Ultimately, Liron’s struggle was worth it as he was able to overcome the misconceptions of US Immigration to secure his EB1 Green Card.

“Keep at it. Remember the reason you are embarking on this and remind yourself of that reason every time there is a set back or new documents required or new hoops to jump through,” Liron advises others. “If it was easy, everyone would do it! But you are in great hands with Chris Ingram and his team and I couldn’t have done this with any other firm.”

Liron’s success story is one of our favorites, and we invite you to read his entire testimonial here.
