Success Stories: EB-1A Petition Approved Just 5 Days after Filing for Research Scientist in Maryland in the Field of Nanomaterials


Client’s Testimonial:

“Chen Immigration Attorneys did an excellent job to help me with my i140 petition. They were extremely professional and answered all my queries promptly in a thorough fashion. Though I was unable to retain them for the i485 petition, their “do it yourself” kit was very helpful. I have already referred them to many of my friends and will continue to refer them to anyone who needs help with green card petitions. Thank you once again for your assistance, I appreciate it greatly!”

On January 11th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Research Scientist in the Field of Nanomaterials (Approval Notice).

Case Summary:

Merely 5 days after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a research scientist from India, the USCIS approved his case. Our client elected to file under Premium Processing, which greatly reduced the wait time for a decision (the usual adjudication timeline is between 4-9 months), but we also believe that our highly detailed petition lent a hand in the swift approval of this case.

As with all our clients, we advised him on the process of selecting recommenders and obtaining their testimonials. Our client obtained six recommendation letters (all from experts in the field of nanomaterials), and this is what one of them had to say about his work: “[Client’s] research on the transfer and growth of these coatings is very important to the advancement of these industries, as they seek to improve the durability of their equipment. Taking these facts into consideration, there is no question that [Client’s] research has been beneficial even on a national scale.”

Alongside these recommendations were details related to our client’s extensive research experience. For instance, we noted the 237 citations gathered from his 9 publications and the dozen times he assessed the work of his peers. We also detailed his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and most importantly, his work on the manufacture of corrosion resistant coatings, energy storage nanomaterials and nanocomposites.

Because we professionally presented the many advantages that our client’s research has for the United States, his I-140 EB-1A was approved by the USCIS. We congratulate him on this victory and wish him the best in his continued research.
