General Field: Toxicology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: India

Service Center: Texas Service center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: North Carolina

Approval Notice Date: February 2nd, 2017

Processing Time: 13 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A postdoctoral fellow from India received notification of EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval just 13 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed it on his behalf. The reason why the USCIS did not spend the expected 4-9 months adjudicating his case and only 13 days is because he opted for Premium Processing (PP). PP is essentially a filing upgrade that costs an additional $1,225, and it guarantees that action will be taken on the petition within 15 calendar days.

What did the EB1A petition contain?

Our goal was to prove to the USCIS that our client possesses extraordinary ability in the field of toxicology. We did this by focusing on several key points such as his publication record, citation count, and peer review experience. At the time of filing, these numbers stood at 22 publications, 425 citations, and 18 instances of peer review service. Furthermore, we reviewed and summarized our client’s work on improving scientific understanding of the relationship between environmental toxins and the development of disease.

As part of our comprehensive services, we helped our client narrow down a list of potential candidates who could serve as supporters of his EB1A case. After carefully evaluating the options, we helped our client select the strongest few, all of whom are influential members of the toxicology research community. We then urged our client to contact them for recommendation letters. Our client promptly returned with four signed letters that advocated for the approval of his EB1A petition. According to one of his recommenders: “The continuation of [Client’s] work is essential for the field of toxicology, and I am certain that it would be a grave detriment to the field if he were no longer able to continue his research. Therefore, I endorse the continuing work of [Client] without hesitation, and submit this letter to you as a confirmation of his position as a leader in the field of toxicology.”

As we were able to convince the USCIS that our client’s work addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding the origins of diseases and how to successfully treat them, he secured EB1A petition approval and is now one step closer to permanent residency. We wish him the best with the final step in the green card process and thank him for working with us.
