Success Stories: NIW and EB1-B Petitions Approved for a Psychiatrist from India in the Field of Psychiatry with the help of our Experts at NAILG


Client’s Testimonial:

“I am very impressed with the professionalism of Chen immigration staff and more than that the humane way they deal with their clients. I did not feel like just a case on their list but felt that they cared for not only your immigration matters but you as a person. The staff was patient, prompt, and ready to answer any difficult questions and never made me feel like I was burdening them with my questions which I must admit were at one point repetitive but the staff dealt with them with a great attitude. I have decided that any of my immigration needs will be dealt with the Chen immigration. Great job and thank you for all the support over the last several months.”

On January 5th, 2022 and April 20th, 2022, we received another EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) and EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) approval for a Psychiatrist in the Field of Psychiatry (Approval Notice).

General Field: Psychiatry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Psychiatrist

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: January 5th, 2022 (NIW) and April 20th, 2022 (EB-1B)

Processing Time: 8 months, 7 days (NIW) and 8 days (EB-1B) (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A psychiatrist in the field of psychiatry approached us to file his NIW (National Interest Waiver) and EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petitions. We made sure that he receives the best legal aid for the same.

To be qualified for the EB1-B category, the petition must:

  • Show international recognition as being outstanding in a specific academic area;
  • The foreign national must have at least 3 years of experience in teaching or researching in the academic area;
  • While no labor certification is required, there must be an offer of ongoing employment from the sponsoring employer.

Therefore, after reviewing his credentials, we found that our client has accumulated an impressive record of success:

  • He received his MBBS from India
  • His research has resulted in 11 peer-reviewed scientific papers and 3 book chapters.
  • His publications have been cited 234 times according to Google Scholar, thereby signifying that these publications are widely acknowledged and counted upon in the field of his expertise.
  • He has conducted at least 45 reviews for at least 5 journals.

Additionally, our client’s research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in advancing new treatments for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. His strong background in providing psychiatric care and treatment for neuroinflammation has allowed his research to be particularly original, with applications such as the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder and the decreased global burden of mental illness and suicide.

Leading researchers from top universities and research groups from the United States and abroad have also submitted letters for him as one out of four stated:

“…[Client] has presented himself as a scientist at the forefront of psychiatry providing significant progress in understanding mood disorders and schizophrenia. His work has been responsible for significant leaps in how we view such conditions and has, by extension, conferred information essential to revising how we treat them. There are few researchers capable of replicating [client’s] efforts, and it would be a detriment to limit [client’s] current efforts”

We are certain that he is more than capable of furthering his knowledge base in the chosen field and continuing his work in the United States of America. He not only received his NIW approval with our efforts but also received his EB-1B approval in 8 days only (thanks to premium processing). He has even filed his I-485 case with us.

We would like to thank him for his sustained presence in the whole immigration process and wish him good luck in his future endeavors.
