Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New York

Case Summary:

A postdoctoral research scientist working in New York received EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval after waiting 4.5 months. Our client opted for Premium Processing a month after filing but instead of receiving an approval notice within 15 days, he received a Request for Evidence (RFE). As part of our services, North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) promptly sprang into action and put together a strong response to the RFE. The USCIS subsequently approved our client’s EB1A petition, bringing him one step closer to a green card.

In preparing our client’s EB1A petition, we focused on the argument that retaining him in the United Stated significantly benefits the nation. We backed up our claim by presenting ample supporting evidence that showcased his extraordinary ability in the field of immunology. These included:

  • Evidence of our client’s original scientific contributions such as his various research projects aimed at developing novel cancer therapies by understanding anti-tumor immune responses activated by molecular and cellular mechanisms. Summing up the importance of our client’s studies, a director of an immunology center wrote this in his recommendation letter: Few scientists hold the kind of research record, full of prominent discoveries, held by [Client], whose uncovering of human DC identity, differentiation, and environmental requirements, distinguishes him as a researcher with no equivalent in the field of immunology.
  • Evidence of his authorship of scholarly articles and their impact on other researchers in the field. Thanks to Google Scholar, we confirmed that our client had published 8 peer-reviewed scientific articles that had been cited 156 times at the time of filing. Furthermore, his contributions to the field were apparent in the 20 peer reviews he had conducted for highly esteemed journals.

We are extremely pleased that our hard work paid off, and we wish our client the very best as he continues to advance his field of endeavor. Furthermore, we wish him well as he files I-485 applications for himself and his dependent with the help of our D.I.Y. Packet.
