General Field: Physics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Georgia

Approval Notice Date: December 4th, 2017

Processing Time: 7 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Just 7 days after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an individualized EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a postdoctoral fellow from India, the USCIS approved his petition.

Our client has a strong academic background which includes a master’s degree and a doctoral degree. These educational achievements have armed him with the skills and knowledge needed to consistently advance the field of physics. Throughout the course of his research career, he carried out impactful work that led to 7 peer-reviewed scientific articles and one patent. His findings were lauded by members of the scientific community as can be witnessed in the 173 citations his publications had gathered at the time of filing.

As his immigration attorney, our aim was to prove to the USCIS that our client’s studies have important applications in the development of new, more efficient forms of micromotors. We did this by presenting a customized EB1A petition packet which focused on his work and its benefits to the United States.

This well-crafted EB1A petition packet also contained a detailed description of the 5 peer reviews that our client had conducted for several prestigious journals. We also included recommendation letters signed by other experts in the field, all of whom concurred that the United States stands to benefit from our client’s studies. We extracted the following statements from two such letters:

One researcher who has performed exceedingly well in this area is [Client], as he has made a handful of groundbreaking discoveries with regard to micromotor design and performance.

it is obvious that the U.S. government has a vested interest in promoting oil spill cleanup research, and the continuation of [Client]’s work within the country is integral for achieving this goal.”

The swift adjudication of our client’s EB1A petition (just 7 days) was made possible because he opted for Premium Processing (PP). By paying the USCIS an additional $1225, he fast-tracked the processing of his case. We congratulate him for securing petition approval and thank him for choosing our firm to represent his case.
