Case Summary:

Our client’s extensive experience characterizing the molecular mechanisms underlying various diseases and developing novel treatment approaches made her a suitable candidate for EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers). Before initiating the contract, we made sure that our client had obtained her employer’s full support (EB-1B is an employer-sponsored visa category). Once her employer—a university—had furnished us with the necessary paperwork, we proceeded with the compilation and submission of our client’s EB-1B petition packet.

When we filed the petition, our client (a research assistant from India) had published 5 scientific papers and her work had amassed 66 citations. We used these figures to prove to the USCIS that her work is heavily relied upon to progress the research of other biochemists. We also documented the 16 times she judged the work of her peers for various scientific journals. Using this data, we demonstrated that her opinions and insights significantly impact the field of biochemistry.

To bolster the EB-1B petition, we urged our client to persuade other influential researchers in the field to provide us with testimonials. Six researchers agreed to lend their support, and the recommendation letters they signed verified our claim that our client’s work is of great importance to the United States medical sector. According to one of our client’s recommenders: “[Client] is unquestionably one of the most exceptional biomedical researchers I have encountered in my career…I have had numerous opportunities to observe her mastery of advanced research techniques, as well as her innate intelligence and tremendous analytical abilities. She uses these skills and attributes, along with the plentiful knowledge she has amassed from years of education and experience, to conduct research that is well beyond the reach of the great majority of her peers.”

Thanks to Premium Processing, our client’s EB-1B petition was approved by the USCIS in merely 13 days. We are currently helping our client and her spouse prepare their I-485 applications. Once the USCIS approves their applications, they will become American permanent residents. North America Immigration Law Group looks forward to helping them attain permanent residency.
