Success Stories: EB-1A Petition Approved in 12 Days for Marine Biotechnology Expert from India (PP Requested)


Client’s Testimonial:

“My thanks to Chen immigration group for approving my i140 under EB1-A (PP). Being a H4 visa holder I understand my case was handled with utmost care and professionalism.  Your staff (lawyers) were always easy to reach. Most of all their availability to fix potential problems and explain the on-going process spared me from anxieties of many a kind. With my five page presentation of my project, you have drafted the most suitable and convincing reference letter in addition to giving me new insights to consider options I have never thought of.  Your lawyers are everything one wants in a counsellor. With the amount of errors and inconsistencies that were eliminated, I am sure the petition drafted will be in my favour on consideration by the USCIS. But for you, I cannot imagine my case being accomplished more comfortably than it is. Thanks a ton.

Many thanks to you once again for the knowledgeable, courteous, efficient advice and services you provided as we navigated through this process. I have no hesitation in recommending your firm to any other individual or institution seeking immigration advice and guidance only because my experience has been friendly, professional and fruitful.”

On February 7th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Petitioner in the Field of Marine Biotechnology (Approval Notice).


General Field: Marine Biotechnology

Country of Origin: India

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: North Carolina

Approval Notice Date: February 7th, 2017

Processing Time: 12 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in Marine Biotechnology, our client is undoubtedly well-equipped with the relevant skills and knowledge to conduct outstanding research in the same field. According to a prominent scientist: “[Client’s] research into bioactive fungal compounds and the effect of that research on other scientists showcases her position as a scientist at the peak of her field of study.” This statement was extracted from the recommendation letter which he contributed in support of our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. He was not alone in this show of support and was joined by four of his peers, who also contributed recommendation letters.

Besides letters of recommendation, our client’s EB-1A petition contained information regarding her 42 publications, 10 instances of peer review service, and the 365 citations gathered from her work. As part of our comprehensive services, we went through our client’s research summary with a fine toothed comb to determine the various benefits her work has to the US. Based on what we learned, we persuaded the USCIS that our client possesses extraordinary ability in addressing some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding the usefulness of natural materials when it comes to developing therapeutics for cancer and other major diseases.

As our client opted to file her EB1A under Premium Processing (PP), she only waited 12 days for the USCIS to grant their approval. We congratulate her for overcoming this significant hurdle in the green card process. We also thank her for retaining us to prepare I-485 applications for her and her spouse, which we recently filed on their behalf.
