Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you so much for the information and wishes. You made it happen for me!”

On January 20th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Petitioner in the Field of Materials Engineering (Approval Notice).


General Field: Materials Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: N/A

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: January 20th, 2017

Processing Time: 8 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Largely thanks to Premium Processing (PP), a materials engineering expert from India secured EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition in 8 days. PP is an option offered by the USCIS whereby select petitioners who pay $1,225 extra will have action taken on their cases within 15 calendar days. This is the perfect option for petitioners who are hesitant to wait between 4-9 months for the USCIS to adjudicate their cases.

Our client’s extensive experience in the field of materials engineering had led to the publication of 14 scientific articles, which collectively, had gathered 122 citations at the time of filing. Furthermore, she had been invited to assess the work of her peers 23 times. These achievements spoke volumes of her role as a leading researcher in her chosen field of expertise.

Besides the aforementioned accomplishments, we also noted our client’s important work on the area of interface science, the study of boundary areas between two materials. After carefully reviewing her research summary, we concluded that her efforts address some of the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding single molecular interactions and adhesions.

To support our client’s EB1A case, we encouraged her to obtain recommendation letters from a handful of her peers. As with all our clients, we advised her on the process of selecting recommenders and obtaining their testimonials. Overall, our client secured 6 letters, one of which contained this statement: “[Client] is a skillful scientist capable of combining an innovative spirit with the discipline of a systematic researcher. [Client’s] record of excellence in the field has placed her among the upper echelons in materials science research worldwide.”

The comprehensive EB1A petition packet North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) put together contained convincing evidence of the benefits of our client’s research to the United States. We are pleased that the USCIS was persuaded to approve her petition, and we congratulate her for moving one step closer to her green card.
