Case Summary:

Just 14 days after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a sustainable materials manager from Iran, we received confirmation of case approval from Texas Service Center.

Our client has a strong academic background including two master’s degrees in in industrial engineering, and environmental science, and his impactful research has led to 5 peer-reviewed journal articles and 5 peer-reviewed conference articles. These publications were well received by the scientific community and were cited 73 times at the time of filing. Our overall goal was to prove to the USCIS that our client’s studies have important applications such as the implementation of environmentally responsible and sustainable industrial systems that reduce resource consumption and eliminate unnecessary waste and byproducts.

The EB1A petition which we prepared for our client contained a detailed description of his academic background, his publication and citation history (as stated above) as well as the 6 peer reviews that he had conducted for prestigious journals. Our client also procured recommendation letters from other experts in the field, all of whom agreed that the United States stands to benefit from his findings. We extracted these statements from two such letters:

“He has provided a roadmap for designers and manufacturers alike, allowing them to create green products that benefit companies, consumers, society, and the planet.”

“His findings are of manifest importance to the United States, as they allow U.S. industries to maintain high profit margins while safeguarding the natural resources on which we all depend.”

It usually takes the USCIS 4-9 months to process I-140 petitions but in this case, the adjudication process was expedited because our client opted for Premium Processing (PP). We congratulate him on this win and thank him for choosing to retain our I-485 services. We look forward to helping him secure his green card, and we wish him the best as he continues to advance the field of sustainability engineering.
