On February 27th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Field of Neurotoxicity (Approval Notice).


General Field: Neurotoxicity

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Research Associate

Country of Origin: India

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Florida

Approval Notice Date: February 27th, 2017

Processing Time: 14 days (Premium Processing requested)

Case Summary:

Fourteen days was the total processing time needed by Texas Service Center to approve our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. Our client, who was born in India, holds a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and is working as a postdoctoral research associate. With years of research experience in the field of neurotoxicity under his belt, our client was a perfect candidate for this strict visa category. Because our client chose to file his EB-1A petition using Premium Processing (PP), the USCIS took action on his case within 15 calendar days (it usually takes them between 3-9 months).

In establishing our client’s case, the team at North America Immigration Law Group ( compiled a myriad of information regarding our client’s professional credentials. These are the three areas we chose to focus on:

  1. Publication Record: When we filed his case, our client had 46 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 2 book chapters under his authorship.
  2. Citation Count: Our client’s work had amassed an astounding 1,050 citations at the time of filing. This number proved that researchers around the world are using our client’s findings to progress not just their research, but the field as a whole.
  3. Peer Review Experience: Our client had already conducted 40 peer reviews for a variety of high-impact scientific journals. As only leaders in the field are invited to judge the work of their peers, the USCIS was convinced that our client is a scientist of high ranking in the field of neurotoxicity.

Besides the information mentioned above, we also detailed our client’s research on the study of neurodegenerative and cerebrovascular conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease and stroke, and emphasized the various ways his research aids the United States in dealing with these debilitating conditions and how it helps in the development of novel treatment options.

We also incorporated recommendation letters volunteered by five illustrious experts in the field. This is what one of them had to say about our client: “In summary, the essential contributions [Client] has made to the field of neuroscience distinguish him as a leading member of the scientific community. Moreover, this record of success surely guarantees that he will continue to make important discoveries that contribute to scientific progress in the years to come.” These words echoed the international influence our client’s work had garnered among his peers.

We applaud our client’s EB-1A petition approval and we wish him the best as he continues to progress the field of neurotoxicity here in the United States.
