Client’s Testimonial:


“Thank you so much for sharing the good news. I did not expect the decision to be made so fast. […] Thank you once again for all the valuable support you have provided me in achieving this great milestone.”

On January 26th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Research Fellow in the Field of Nanotechnology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Nanotechnology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Fellow

Country of Origin: India

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Arkansas

Approval Notice Date: January 26th, 2016

Processing Time: 6 days (Premium Processing requested)

Case Summary:


“There is a critical need for alternatives to fossil fuels for energy generation. [Client’s] work on developing and characterizing novel nano-micro sized doped carbon materials for use in supercapacitors has provided a sound method for the development of energy materials that have none of the negative environmental consequences. This is work that contributes in crucial ways to the interests of the United States and the rest of the world.”

This quote aptly describes our client’s work in the field of nanotechnology. It is taken from a recommendation letter contributed by an expert in the field, which along with several other letters was included in our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition packet.

Our client, who is a research fellow from India with a Ph.D. in Applied Science, hired North America Immigration Law Group to help him file his I-140. He chose to file his case under Premium Processing (which greatly reduces the wait time for a decision) and received an approval notice six days later. We believe that our thorough and convincing petition played a part in the approval of this case. When we submitted our client’s petition to the USCIS, his 13 publications had collected 152 independent citations. He had also conducted 40 peer reviews.

Our client’s professional experience and our all-inclusive petition packet enabled us to easily prove to the USCIS that his research is important to the development of renewable energy devices in the United States. We congratulate our client on getting one step closer to his green card.
