Case Summary:

Just 2 weeks after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a chief scientist from India, the USCIS approved her case. The rapid timeline is thanks to Premium Processing (PP), a paid option that guarantees action will be taken on the case within 15 days.

In preparing our client’s comprehensive EB1A petition dossier, we chose to focus on several key points that highlighted her extraordinary ability in the field of chemistry. For one, we listed the 16 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 2 published patents in her name. We also noted the 167 citations gathered from her work as well as her peer review experience—28 reviews conducted for a variety of scientific journals.

To further fortify our client’s petition, we encouraged her to reach out to her peers and ask for letters of recommendation. We helped our client select suitable recommenders and made sure that they were familiar with her work on the synthesis and characterization of metal and metal oxide catalysts that are cost-effective and environmentally friendly. Our client convinced six of her peers to lend their support, one of whom stated this in his recommendation letter: “With these discoveries and several others, [Client] has exerted a substantial influence on the academic study of materials science. […] The repeated successes that [Client] has achieved in this past work make it clear that the country cannot afford to deny the continuation of her research and preclude the further advancements that she is certain to achieve in the future.”

We are pleased that the USCIS saw merit in retaining our client in the US, and we congratulate her for securing a highly sought-after EB1A approval. We would also like to thank our client for retaining our I-485 services, and we look forward to helping her obtain her green card.
