Success Stories: Senior Research Scientist from India in the Field of Computer Science Obtained Employer-Sponsored EB-1B Petition Approval


Client’s Testimonial:

“The efforts put forth by Chen Immigration and Attorneys has been instrumental in obtaining the approvals for my O1-A and EB-1B (I-140) petitions. The approvals came in 4 and 8 days respectively after request for premium processing.

However, this did not happen overnight and neither did I want them to happen that way. Although my credentials were in place for both the petitions, most of the time was spent on preparing the materials and revising them over and over again. I was very busy in my job and barely had time to go over revisions on a continuous basis. However, the team at Chen Associates kept at it, always responding to my questions promptly and carefully going over every single piece of text and supporting evidence. Being trained as a scientist during my PhD, I would say, it was more like writing an academic paper with collaborators – everybody invested time and energy into the process and in the end the paper got accepted. This is a win for us all!

It took around 5 months to prepare the materials mostly because of my intermittent involvements but it was worth the wait. That being said, the logical constructs and inferences laid down by my team of lawyers to construct the reasoning as to why I may be suitable candidate in the area of O1-A and EB-1B criteria is outstanding – there simply was no room to refute the arguments. Very well done! I will always keep you in mind.”

On March 30th, 2016, we received another EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) approval for a Senior Research Scientist in the Field of Computer Science (Approval Notice).

Case Summary:

This EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) case involved a prominent senior research scientist from India working in the field of computer science. As EB-1B is an employer-petitioned visa category, our client had to get his employer’s full support before hiring North America Immigration Law Group ( After our client had signed the contract and his employer (a private American company) had furnished us with the relevant documents, our legal team and support staff immediately got to work putting together a strong EB-1B petition.

EB-1B Petition:

Our client’s EB-1B petitioned contained a wealth of information on his various research accomplishments. We documented the 91 citations gathered from his work and the 26 times he conducted peer reviews for multiple scientific journals. We used these figures to prove that our client’s insights are in high demand among scientists immersed in the field of computer science. We also noted our client’s research ventures on natural language processing and machine learning, as well as the 5 published papers that resulted from his investigations. Based on the data that we had amassed, we concluded that our client’s findings progress national research related to supervised learning and topic modeling in artificial intelligence.

To further fortify the EB-1B petition, we included recommendation letters signed by other expert computer scientists from top U.S. universities and research labs in the U.S. and abroad. As part of our comprehensive services, we helped our client select these experts and ensured that the shortlisted candidates were familiar with his publications and/or had worked with him. The six letters that our client gathered attested to the value of his work, one of which recommended our client “… to continue moving artificial intelligence onward with his talents as a researcher and equally superb expertise as a research software developer.”

Petition Outcome:

Because we were able to convince the USCIS that our client’s credentials are legitimate and that his work is of great importance to the United States, they were persuaded to approve his EB-1B petition. Largely due to Premium Processing, our client received notification of case approval merely 9 days after we filed the petition on his behalf. We congratulate our client for obtaining an EB-1B petition approval, and we look forward to helping him attain a green card.
