“Thank you for your excellent work!”
On September 12th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for an Application Specialist in the Field of Computer Science (Approval Notice).
General Field: Computer Science
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Application Specialist
Country of Origin: India
Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)
State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts
Approval Notice Date: September 12th, 2016
Processing Time: 8 months, 7 days
A well-known application specialist from India approached North America Immigration Law Group (WeGreened.com) for help with his EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. After carefully reviewing his credentials, we determined that he was suitably qualified for this tough visa category—we confirmed that we could prove to the USCIS that our client’s research in the Field of computer science is of great importance to the United States. In preparing our client’s winning EB-1A petition dossier, these are some of the key points we chose to focus on:
- His research projects on bioinformatics were duly highlighted. We determined that our client has produced tools for clinical trial standardization and adverse drug event identification. We also convinced the USCIS that he is particularly well-known for his development of an automatic gene recognition methodology, text mining applications, and tools for curating model organism databases.
- Our client’s research has led to various accolades including his impressive citation and publication record. At the time of filing, these numbers stood at 211 citations and 18 peer-reviewed conference and journal articles.
- We also chose to focus on our client’s notable peer review experience. When we filed his case, our client had already conducted 34 peer reviews for various prestigious scientific journals such as PLOS ONE.
- Furthermore, we detailed our client’s academic achievements and proved that his PhD in Computer Science has furnished him with the insight to carry out productive research.
- We also incorporated recommendation letters into his EB-1A petition packet to support our argument that he is a leader in the field of computer science. These letters were contributed by other influential computer scientists, one of whom stated that “Assuredly, the field of computer science and many other fields of research will continue rely on these discoveries for their forward advancement. Thus, it is critical that we give [Client] the opportunity to move forward with his scientific work.”
Overall, our client waited 8 months and 7 days before the USCIS approved his EB-1A petition. We are pleased that the USCIS did not issue a Request for Evidence (RFE) as it would have considerably lengthened the overall wait time. We congratulate our client for securing a highly sought-after EB-1A approval notice and we wish him the best as he continues to progress the field of computer science in the US.
