General Field: Biochemistry

Approval Notice Date: March 17th, 2017

Case Summary:

After a long wait of 14.5 months, a research associate from India finally received notification of EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval. His petition received a Request for Evidence (RFE) and overall, we had to raise two service requests on his behalf. Despite the setbacks, the USCIS saw the merits in retaining him in the United States, which propelled him one big step closer to a green card.

Building the EB1A case:

We spent several months preparing our client’s EB1A petition. Our goal was to convince the USCIS that our client is an extraordinary researcher in the field of biochemistry and that his findings are valuable to the United States. We did this by presenting his various achievements, such as his publication record of eight peer-reviewed scientific articles, two book chapters, and numerous presentations at national and international conferences. We also noted the over 100 times he had judged the work of his peers as well as the 110 times his work had been cited at the time of filing.

Further, we urged our client to contact other expert biochemists and ask for recommendation letters. These letters were incorporated into the EB1A petition dossier and served as important evidence of our client’s high standing in the field. They also listed the significance of our client’s work on the underlying mechanisms in protein signaling that contribute to bodily function and disease development. As an example, one of client’s recommenders described our client as “…uniquely situated to conduct interdisciplinary research. In this light, I view [Client] as an irreplaceable researcher.”

The team at North America Immigration Law Group ( would like to thank our client for working with us, and we congratulate him as he celebrates the fact that his I-485 was recently approved and he is now a US permanent resident.
