Success Stories: EB-1B Petition Approved for Research Associate from Libya in the Field of Cardiology


Client’s Testimonial:


“Wonderful news. Thank you, thank you very much. I am so happy and can’t believe it was approved in 5 days. Thank you again. I appreciate all the work you have done for this case. I couldn’t have done it without you.”

On January 13th, 2016, we received another EB-1B approval for a Research Associate in the Field of Cardiology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Cardiology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Associate

Country of Origin: Libya

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New York

Approval Notice Date: January 13th, 2016

Processing Time: 5 days (Premium Processing requested)



Case Summary:

This EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) case was petitioned by a medical college in support of a research associate from Libya. Our client received his I-140 approval five days after we filed his case. The rapid adjudication of this case was thanks to Premium Processing, an option that is only available to petitions filed under the EB-1 category.

North America Immigration Law Group compiled a well-balanced EB-1B petition packet that demonstrated our client’s professional and academic accomplishments. For instance, we included his transcripts and a copy of his medical degree. These were accompanied by information on his citation and publication record, which at the time of filing stood at 327 and 10 respectively. We were meticulous in our presentation of our client’s research, which focuses on cardiovascular diseases on a molecular level to develop advanced treatments. Finally, we made clear that our client is well-known in his field for identifying a coronary vascular progenitor cell in the human heart.

As part of our service, we helped our client contact experts in his field to request their support. The recommendation letters these experts contributed made clear the importance of our client’s work to the country and the world. One letter said, in part, “The fact that so many widely geographically distributed research institutions have cited [Client’s] study is a good indication of his global influence on cardiovascular research. I am sure he will continue to produce nothing but similarly important and applicable research well into the future. In my opinion every effort should be made to provide a stable and nurturing environment for this gifted investigator. The benefit to US biomedical science is clear.”   

We recently filed I-485s for our client and his wife, and we wish them the very best in obtaining their green cards.
