EB1A

Published Aug 10,2018 By Mitali

Hi, I am an Indian citizen who completed her PhD in Pharma Nanotechnology and have 4 years of experience in Singapore thereafter. I have 31 journal papers and 777 citations. I have reviewed journal papers and received an international IET award for presenting my research. What are my chances of getting EB1A?

2 years back I moved to Canada and completed my MBA, to be able to combine my science background with business. I am currently working in a big Canadian bank in their Risk team. How does this affect my application?

Hi Mitali,

The information you provided shows that you have a good chance to satisfy USCIS criteria for EB1A. According to the law, the 2 years you spent outside your field of research should not affect your opportunities in obtaining the green card, since your achievements are recent. However, you will have to be able to demonstrate your intent of working in the field defined in your EB1A petition (the field, in which your possess the extraordinary skills, based on the evidence, such as those citations). Inability to do so might be an obstacle, and it would make sense to contact an immigration lawyer for a first free consultation to see what are the current USCIS practices regarding such cases.
