On February 14th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Field of Organometallic Chemistry (Approval Notice).

General Field: Organometallic Chemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher

Country of Origin: India

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Connecticut

Approval Notice Date: February 14th, 2017

Processing Time: 13 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Just 13 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a postdoctoral researcher from India, the USCIS took action on his case and approved it. The quick processing time is largely thanks to Premium Processing (PP). By paying $1,225 more, our client enjoyed the luxury of having action taken on his petition within 15 calendar days instead of the usual 4-9 months.

Proving that our client is an expert in the field of organometallic chemistry:

First of all, we urged our client to obtain evidence of the value of his work from his fellow peers. He did this by convincing them to contribute recommendation letters, all of which strongly supported the approval of his EB1A petition. According to one of his recommenders: “His work is of the utmost importance to researchers within the U.S. pharmaceutical industry, particularly those involved in drug discovery and development. As a world leader in the pharmaceutical market and general innovation, it is clearly in the interests of the U.S. to allow [Client] to continue his research unhindered.”

We also highlighted our client’s overall influence in the field by listing the 175 citations gathered from his 5 published scientific articles as well as the 35 times he assessed the work of his peers. Moreover, we noted his work on improving the synthesis of important organic molecules by advancing the understanding of catalytic reactions. We then concluded that his research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding the mechanistic basis of invaluable catalytic reactions required for making molecules that are important to daily life by means of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and energy sources.

We are pleased that the USCIS saw the value in our client’s research efforts and granted him EB1A petition approval. Three months after his EB1A petition was approved, we filed I-485 applications for him and his spouse. As the final step in the green card process, I-485 approval signals US permanent residency. We join them as they eagerly wait for action to be taken on their applications.
