General Field: Internal Medicine

Case Summary:

Just 12 days after North America Immigration Law group (NAILG) filed a customized EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for an academic nocturnist from India, the USCIS approved his case. The reason for such swift adjudication is thanks to Premium Processing, a top-up service which greatly reduces the wait time for a decision. We also believe that our highly detailed EB1A petition and unprecedented insight into USCIS adjudication trends lent a hand in case approval.

Building a strong EB1A petition:

Our goal was to prove to the USCIS that our client is an extraordinary researcher who should be allowed to continue his research in the United States. We started off by amassing a wealth of information related not just to our client’s research projects in the field of internal medicine, but also to his various academic and professional achievements. For instance, we detailed his work on analyzing the safety and outcomes of clinical techniques used to treat different malignancies and diseases related to the liver, pancreas, and other organ systems. We also noted the 234 times his 15 publications were cited by dependent and independent researchers. Further, we shed light on the 160 times our client had assessed the work of his peers for various scientific journals.

As we have successfully petitioned over 10,000 I-140 cases, we knew that we had to include several recommendation letters into our client’s petition dossier. These letters of support not only provided the USCIS with subjective evidence of our client’s high standing in the field, but they also detailed the significance of his work to the United States. For instance, this is what one of our client’s recommenders noted in his recommendation letter: “I will end by remarking that it is clear that [Client’s] groundbreaking research […] has advanced the entire international medical community. [Client’s] educational training, professional experience, and research contributions collectively make him an undisputed leader in the field.”

The approval of this EB1A petition is yet another example of our dedication to helping all our clients get one step closer to their green card. We congratulate our client for coming this far in the lengthy journey to permanent residence, and we thank him for trusting us to help him secure EB-1A petition approval.
