Case Summary:

A senior polymer research scientist holding a Ph.D. in polymer chemistry from India hired North America Immigration Law Group to help him obtain an O1-A (Individuals with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement) petition approval notification. We began to evaluate his credentials to file a strong and influencing petition on his behalf. Our experience of several years paid off really well when our client received his O1A approval in just 12 days after we filed his case. The more our collaboration gets the appreciation, the more we appreciate the premium processing service as well, which is a paid option offered by the USCIS that allows petitioners to enjoy accelerated adjudication (the case will be processed within 15 days instead of 9-12 months).

Our law firm is well known for handling employment-based visa petitions since we know all the latest adjudicating trends of the USCIS which helps our clients to achieve their goal of receiving green card success. Therefore, after successfully receiving the O1-A approval, our client retained us to file for another petition under the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa category. We were certain that even both the petitions are unique in their own terms, however, it would be facile for our adept team members to articulate his EB1A petition as well.

A brief synopsis of what his O1-A and EB-1A petition packets consisted of:

  • We noted his research focusing on the development of novel polymeric materials and how it addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues, including biomedicine, catalysis, optoelectronics, photonics, and additive manufacturing, among other industries. Considering the importance of these industries to the national economy and the benefits to American citizens conceded by improved biomedical technology, his work is certainly valuable for the nation.
  • We also perceived that it was noteworthy to mention his publication and citation record; the 27 peer-reviewed articles and 1 book chapter gathered 862 citations from 36 countries. His research career overall has been tremendously fruitful, and his lasting contributions to the scientific literature of polymer chemistry have firmly established him as a researcher of unique import and clout. Many of his peers are pleased to count themselves among the hundreds of researchers who have recognized the weight of our client’s work and gained from his studies.
  • Also, one of the best pieces of evidence is having performed peer review for a scholarly journal, thus, we specified the 22 times our client judged the work of his peers, confirming that he has reviewed scientific manuscripts to determine their suitability for publication and corroborated his actual participation as a reviewer for highly acclaimed journals.
  • Moreover, his research has also been supported with funding by various notable organizations as such the United States-Israel Binational Science Foundation; the Israel Science Foundation; the National Science Foundation; the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency; the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of Germany (the Bundesministerium fur Bildung und Forschung (BMBF)); the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)); Facebook, Inc. This funding aid, therefore, serves as important evidence of the merit of his research in improving production techniques for a class of polymers with a broad range of commercially valuable applications.
  • Looking at the repeated application of his work, serving to illustrate the utility of his innovative studies, we asked him to provide us with letters of support to establish the urgent need for his work continuation in the United States. Accordingly, our client provided us with 4 recommendation letters. One of the recommenders signed to:

“[Client’s] research has truly meritorious developments in the fundamental materials needed to drive these industries. His work in polymer chemistry is indicative of a researcher with a superb aptitude for his area of expertise and has gained him considerable esteem from the field. Indeed, his effect on polymer chemistry is commensurate with a researcher performing at the top of their abilities and he has gained global acclaim from the research community.”

We are extremely happy that he successfully achieved his EB1A approval too. We were able to persuade the USCIS once again that our client has had a tremendous effect on the field and will continue to influence the work of his peers. As one of the most impressive researchers working today, the objective utility of his research and his contributions to the scientific landscape is undeniable. Hence, thanks to premium processing again, our client received his EB1A petition approval in just 9 days. We sincerely thank him for trusting us in managing his I-129 and I-140 applications and allowing us to be a part of this amazing achievement story.
