Case Summary:

A research assistant professor from India recently engaged the services of North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an I-140 EB1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) on his behalf. Our client, who has a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry, opted for Premium Processing. He received his approval notice two short weeks later.

North America Immigration Law Group ensured that every relevant detail of our client’s research was included in our presentation of his accomplishments. For instance, we highlighted his publication and citation record; when we filed the petition, our client’s 19 published papers had earned his work 180 citations. To establish the influence of his work within the field of chemical engineering, his petition included several recommendation letters written by professionals in his field. According to one of our client’s recommenders, “[Client] has been vital to provide guidance and information on nanoparticles for further development. His work in this area is dedicated to developing nanoparticle architecture that composes electronics, medical materials and drugs, and a range of common materials necessary to modern society.”

In short, we presented the USCIS with a convincing argument that our client’s novel approaches to nanotechnology and nanoparticle assembly are crucial to the United States. We are pleased at the rapid approval of his EB-1A petition and congratulate him on the completion of a major step toward receiving his green card.
