Premium Processing Services Filing Date: January 17, 2014
Approval Date: January 30, 2014
Service Center: Texas Service Center
Processing Time: 34 days

Dr. Y was a researcher in the fields of chemical engineering and renewable energy, particularly in the areas of carbon capturing sorbents and biomass utilization. She published 6 peer-reviewed journal articles and 7 conference and symposium papers. Her publications were cited 102 times. Dr. Y was invited to present her work at 27 conferences and reviewed 47 manuscripts for leading academic journals. Despite Dr. Y’s lack of substantial awards, Dr. Y’s lack of membership in merit-based organizations, and no significant published materials about Dr. Y in major publications or media, Visatopia highlighted Dr. Y’s other achievements and ensured that Dr. Y’s petition package was at its most probative when submitted.

Dr. Y’s petition was filed with the Texas Service Center and later upgraded to Premium Processing. Because of the expedited nature of Premium Processing Services, reviewing immigration officers often request RFEs. Here, Dr. Y’s approval was granted only 14 days after upgrading to Premium Processing Services.
