Success Stories: EB-1A Petition Approved in 10 Months for Postdoctoral Researcher from India in the Field of Biomedical Science

Client’s Testimonial:

“Thanks so much, I really do appreciate all your help. I had already spread the word around about your team of lawyers to all my friends and colleagues.”

On March 14th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Field of Biomedical Science (Approval Notice).


General Field: Biomedical Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher

Country of Origin: India

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Maryland

Approval Notice Date: March 14th, 2016

Processing Time: 10 months

Case Summary:

Exactly 10 months after we filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on our client’s behalf, we received an approval notice from Texas Service Center (TSC). Our client, a postdoctoral researcher immersed in the Field of biomedical science, hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to organize and submit a strong EB-1A petition for him. We worked diligently to consolidate as much relevant information as we could on our client’s diverse portfolio.

Outstanding Credentials:

As EB-1A has a very high standard of law, we needed to convince the USCIS that our client’s credentials were legitimate and that his work positively impacts the United States. We started by documenting his citation and publication record, which at the time of filing stood at 1204 citations and 7 publications. We also listed the nearly two dozen times he conducted peer reviews for journals and conferences. We used this information to demonstrate to the USCIS that our client’s work is highly regarded by other researchers in his field and that it is used to advance the work of other biomedical scientists.

We also detailed our client’s research efforts on the development of novel scientific technologies regarding nanoparticle drug delivery and bioengineering. We established that his findings boost the American pharmaceutical industry and significantly progress the fields of nanotechnology and microfluidic engineering. We supported our claims by incorporating recommendation letters into our EB-1A petition packet. Our client gathered these letters from other leaders in his field, all of whom willingly authenticated the evidence included in our presentation. One of our client’s supporters wrote, “His presence in the United States is invaluable for the development of superior medical treatments for diseases like GTS, although his work also has palpable applications for anti-cancer therapy, as well.” Another supporter described our client’s work as “… highly beneficial to the scientific community in the United States and globally.”

Filing an I-485:

Our client chose to file I-485 applications (final step in the green card process) for himself and his spouse while his EB1A petition was pending approval. We hope that they receive news on their applications soon. Meanwhile, we would like to thank our client for selecting our firm to help him attain permanent residency, and we wish him well as he continues to advance his field of biomedical science.
