Case Summary:


North America Immigration Law Group ( recently helped a postdoctoral fellow from India submit his EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary) petition. The comprehensive petition packet our legal team put together contained convincing evidence of the benefits of our client’s research to the United States.

Our client, who is from India, has a high profile standing in the field of microbiology. His development of vaccines for tuberculosis is of great value to the country and his current research encourages the understanding of the mechanisms underlying infectious diseases, especially those caused by bacteria. Our client’s EB-1A petition packet was comprised of data on his 114 independent citations gained from his 12 published papers, as well as details of his peer review experience. We also included six recommendation letters volunteered by expert microbiologists. One of these experts wrote, “Considering the value presented in the development of drugs that overcome resistant pathogens, halting [Client’s] research would be devastating to medical research throughout the country. He has already made great advances to the field, and, based on what he has already accomplished, his continued work will be advantageous to public health.”   

As our client chose to file his EB-1A petition under Premium Processing, he received his approval notice 13 days later. We recently filed I-485 (the final step towards a green card) applications for him and his family, and we wish them the best.
