Success Stories: With 157 Citations to His Name, a Research Associate in the Field of Human Genetics Secures EB-1A Petition Approval in 13 Days


Client’s Testimonial:

“Congratulations to all of you too!! Thanks for making the wining petition including excellent reference letters and petition letter drafts. I will keep recommending your services to my friends.”

On January 31st, 2018, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Research Associate in the Field of Human Genetics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Human Genetics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Associate

Country of Origin: India

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Minnesota

Approval Notice Date: January 31st, 2018

Processing Time: 13 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A client of ours—a research associate from India— was described as “a distinct asset to the United States” as well as “a major figure in the research community”. Further, his work in the field of human genetics has been hailed as “necessary for continued improvements in clinical strategies and overall public health” and deemed “vital for healthcare improvements on a national level.”

The statements above were made by six influential members of the human genetics research community. They contributed recommendation letters in support of our client’s personalized EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, and we have no doubt that their support played a big role in obtaining case approval.

Besides the recommendation letters, our client’s customized EB1A petition dossier contained information related to his work on using next generation sequencing to discover novel genes implicated in human diseases. We also listed the 157 times his 7 publications were cited a well as the 21 times he had assessed the work of his peers at the time of filing. Moreover, we made it a point to include supporting evidence such as our client’s CV, copies of his doctoral degree, a statement describing his future research plans, and a detailed employment letter.

Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), our client only waited 13 days for the USCIS to adjudicate his case. To file their cases with PP, all qualified petitioners have to do is pay the USCIS an additional $1,225 and submit Form I-907.

We congratulate our client for securing EB1A petition approval, and we thank him for retaining our services to help him with the final step in the green card process: filing an I-485 application. We guarantee him our continued support and wish him the best as he continues to conduct impactful work in the field of human genetics.
