Case Summary:

13 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition for a Principal Scientist from India, the USCIS approved his case. Not only did our client have a doctoral degree and ample experience working in the field of organic chemistry, he also had the full support from his employer—a pharmaceutical company based in North Carolina—who served as the case’s petitioner.

Qualifying for EB1-B

EB1-B is a subcategory of priority worker. To be qualified in this category, the petition must show international recognition as being outstanding in a specific academic area. The foreign national must have at least three years of experience in teaching or research in the academic area.

Building a Strong EB1-B Petition

Once we thoroughly examined our client’s credentials, we were assured that he had the right set of qualifications to be considered for an EB-1B petition. His specialized research has focused on the design and synthesis of drugs for therapeutic purposes with applications such as in the treatment of cancer, cognitive disorders, and diabetes. As EB-1B is an employer-sponsored category, we made sure that our client’s employer was on the same page and that they were willing to provide us with the relevant documents needed to build and file the case.

Once everything was in order, our team prepared the best evidence to attest to his qualifications and outstanding achievements in the criteria. Our client’s EB-1B petition observed his record of authorship (4 peer-reviewed scientific articles) and citation metrics (59 citations at the time of filing) which demonstrated his leading role in the field. Additionally, we submitted evidence of the 25 reviews he conducted for 4 highly distinguished journals in the field.

To further support this petition, we helped our client shortlist a group of experts who could vouch for his EB-1B candidacy in the field of organic chemistry. Six of the experts provided strong recommendation letters to support our client. According to one of the recommenders: “[Client]’s contributions to date showcase an exceptional degree of competence in organic chemistry. Not only is it clear that he is highly proficient at translating the principles of chemistry into effective methodologies for the production of specific compounds, he also demonstrates clear vision of what types of reactions need to be pursued for the sake of the greater scientific and medical needs of society. These attributes make it clear that his future scientific work will continue to revolutionize this field. For that reason, strongly recommend that the United States support his ongoing organic chemistry work”.

Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), our client’s EB-1B petition was approved just 13 days after filing. Our years of experience in handling employment-based immigration petitions have enabled us to deliver the best services to our clients. We congratulate our client on his EB-1B petition success and thank him for working with us.
