Dear Mr. Khanna,

This is Subhash Sista, currently working as a research scholar at NIST, Gaithersburg, MD. My credentials are as given below:

My education: PhD in Biomaterial Science with 2 years post-phd and 1 year pre-phd.
Total number of publications = 3 (All first author)
Total citations (Google Scholar) = 61
Reviewed papers for journals as a reviewer = 2

I would like to know my realistic chances of applying for a EB1 A/B category and what percentage of success can i expect to stand with the credentials i own as of now. I would be pleased to contact you on things where i can work on to improve, to stand a realistic chance of getting my i-140 approved. Please do let me know for any additional information i can provide for assessing my application.

It looks like a very long shot. But that is just an educated guess, Subhash ji. No more, no less.

Dear Sir,

My L1B to L1A conversion has been approved by USCIS. I wish to know if my employer can file for GC under EB1 category as I have not worked in managerial role outside US. I have been a technical lead at offshore for the same organisation. Appreciate your response

Thanks
Vikas

No, Vikas ji, I do not believe an EB-1C is available in such circumstances. Sorry.

Qualification for EB1
Hello Mr. Khanna,
I am trying to see if my qualifications make me a good candidate for a green card application in EB-1 category. I am working on H1B Visa in US an I want to get the green card process started ASAP especially if I have a strong candidacy for EB1. I have published 7 journal articles and 15 abstract and many national & international conference presentations & proceedings with honours and awards.
Do you have an email address where I can send my resume and other details to you so that you can look at my case and may be set up a consultation with you or one of your associates.
I would greatly appreciate your input in this regards.
Thank you
Regards
