Case Summary:

An associate professor based in Iran contacted North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to represent him in an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) case. EB1A is a stringent I-140 category that requires the petitioner to have achieved international acclaim and whose studies must benefit the United States. Our team went ahead with the case after concluding that he was a good fit for EB1A.

Drafting the petition:

One of the first steps included listing our client’s various research projects in detail. His specialized research in the field of organic chemistry is focused on developing efficient and applicable synthetic strategies for the synthesis of new heterocyclic compounds with applications such as improving methods for synthesizing chemicals for modern medicine and pharmaceuticals, as well as for the chemical industry in general.

His studies have resulted in an astounding 165 peer-reviewed scientific articles; a very productive publication record which enabled us to demonstrate that our client is significantly advancing the field. In addition to that, we also highlighted his impressive record of 4,003 citations. These citations came from researchers both in the United States and around the world, and this number supported our claim that our client’s work has received international recognition. Furthermore, we asserted our client’s respected status in his field through the 190 peer-reviews he had conducted for high impact journals.

With the help of recommendation letters signed by other experts in the field, we were successful in providing ample evidence to the USCIS that our client’s research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding green chemistry-based organic synthesis techniques. This is what one of our client’s recommenders stated in his letter of support:

“Not only is [Client] able to coordinate groundbreaking research in the field of organic chemistry, but he is also able to apply his scientific discoveries practically in order to implement more ecofriendly methods of chemical production. It is for these reasons that [Client]’s expertise constitutes an invaluable asset to national science and industry, without which the advancement of organic chemistry research in the United States will surely be undermined.

We congratulate our client for obtaining EB1A petition approval, and as the final step in the green card process (specifically for applicants living abroad), our client has retained our services for Immigrant Visa Processing (IVP). We guarantee our continued support through this process and look forward to helping our client and his dependents obtain US permanent residency. To learn more about IVP, please visit
