Client’s Testimonial:

“That’s really great news to hear about the approved O1A Visa application. I sincerely thank each member of your team for their valuable input and efforts.”

On April 14th, 2022, we received another O1-A (Individuals with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement) approval for a Research Scientist in the Field of Chemistry (Approval Notice).

General Field: Chemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Scientist

Country of Origin: India

Country of Residence at the Time of Filing: India

Approval Notice Date: April 14th, 2022

Processing Time: 10 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

The O-1 nonimmigrant visa is for those individuals who possess extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, or those who have a demonstrated record of extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or television industry and have been recognized nationally or internationally for those achievements. So when we got an O1-A client from India who needed our help we made sure to give him the best service possible. As a research scientist in the field, he held a Ph.D. in chemistry and we collected the following data from the academic and professional documents that he furnished to be used in his petition letter to the USCIS:

  • He has made substantial contributions to the field of chemistry. Specifically, his specialized research has focused on developing hybrid nanocomposites for electrochemical biosensors, along with photo/electrocatalytic, corrosion, and biomedical applications.
  • His research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding how different functional groups and metal precursors impact the thermal and structural features of hybrid nanocomposites.
  • He has an extensively documented record of authorship in his field of endeavor. As evidence of this research success, his work has resulted in 19 peer-reviewed journal articles and a book chapter.
  • Moreover, his work has been cited 533 times in other peer-reviewed journal articles, according to Google Scholar.
  • He is also active in the scientific community as a peer reviewer for highly acclaimed journals. He has conducted at least 9 reviews.
  • Leading researchers from top universities and research groups from the United States and abroad have submitted 4 letters confirming him as a researcher of extraordinary ability in his specialized field. One of these experts had the following opinion of his work:

“…[the client] is a uniquely qualified scientist in the chemistry field, and his work is essential for both the scientific community and energy storage around the world. He designed, synthesized, tested, and implemented a new electro/photocatalyst for the oxygen evolution reaction/dye degradation, effectively optimizing the energy storage industry and overcoming many of its current challenges. This is a testament to [the client’s] considerable skill and experience as a chemist. His research is among the first and most successful of its kind, and he must be given the chance to continue it uninterrupted.”

So, our teamwork helped the client prepare, file, and win his O1-A approval only 10 days after applying. This would not have been possible without the joint effort of our experienced attorney and team. We are thankful to him for choosing our firm to represent him and we wish him all the best in the future.
