Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you guys. By far, you guys are the best in the market. Compared to other immigration law firms, Chen immigration charges a reasonable price but handles the applications very good. I have seen applications processed through other immigration law firms where they take some issues for granted leading to RFEs. Chen immigration takes importance to even the tiny issues and makes sure that your case is approved. Their success rate speaks about their commitment.”

On March 17th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Physiology (Approval Notice).


General Field: Physiology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Tennessee

Approval Notice Date: March 17th, 2016

Processing Time: 7 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A week after we submitted our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition under Premium Processing, we received an approval notice from Texas Service Center. Our client, a postdoctoral fellow from India working in the field of physiology, chose to work with North America Immigration Law Group ( because he knew about our high approval rates and commitment to helping every client get one step closer to green card success.

EB-1A Petition Details:

Our client’s comprehensive EB-1A petition packet was composed of a myriad of information on his educational and professional achievements. For instance, we detailed his 9 publications that had gathered 263 citations at the time of filing. We also listed the 14 times he contributed his insights to other researchers through peer reviews. These accomplishments undoubtedly highlighted our client’s position as a leader in his field. We also carefully reviewed and accounted for our client’s work on ion channel physiology and demonstrated the significance of his findings to the United States.

In a bid to bolster our EB1A petition, we urged our client to reach out to other experts in his field and ask for recommendation letters. Five specialists agreed to lend their support, and their letters played prominent roles in helping us convince the USCIS that our client is an asset to the nation. Here are several excerpts:

  • “Without [Client’s] continued presence in the field, the research community of the United States would be at a considerable disadvantage, as his innovations have led to tangible improvements in biophysical and physiological research.”
  • “As one of the most prominent names in physiology, [Client] has considerably improved the field, strengthening the scientific community’s knowledge of ionic pathways and opening exploratory avenues for further research in this area. There are few scientists who have been able to match the superior quality and relentless innovation that have become the hallmarks of [Client’s] research.”

[…] I have no hesitation in saying that his findings have impacted his chosen field to a degree that few others in the community can match. Indeed, he is one of the most acclaimed members of the scientific community.

I-485 Application:

We are currently helping our client and his spouse with their I-485 applications. This is the final step in the green card process and once the USCIS approves their applications, they will become American permanent residents.
