Client’s Testimonial:


Thank you very much. So excited!


On February 12th, 2016, We Received another EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) Approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Atmospheric Sciences (Approval Notice)

General Field: Atmospheric Sciences

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New Jersey

Approval Notice Date: February 12th, 2016

Processing Time: 1 Month and 1 Day (10 Days after Premium Processing Requested)



Case Summary:

Our client in this case was a postdoctoral fellow from China who works in the field of atmospheric sciences with a focus on the organic aerosols in the atmosphere, which majorly impact climate change, public health, and the broader environment. We have successfully demonstrated the client’s superior level of expertise and her qualification for classification as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability in spite of her moderate citation count (78 times at the time this case was filed). Her EB-1A case was smoothly approved within only 1 month and 1 day after case filing (Premium Processing requested).

At the time this case was filed, the client has published 6 peer-reviewed scientific articles in some of the most prestigious, high impact journals in her field. She has also participated in numerous national and international conferences and has served as the reviewer for over 6 distinctive, internationally-circulated journals. One of client’s independent recommenders has confirmed her unique and expansive background of expertise and experience in the following quote: “As an expert in the field myself, I consider [client] a leading atmospheric scientist. Her work is consistently influential, and she undertakes projects with benefits for the state of the climate and environment in the United States. […] As a direct result of [client’s] work, we are more effectively mitigating these (i.e. climate) changes.”

With the evidence and documentation that we provided, we have made a strong argument of the client’s reasonable expectation for continuing conducting extraordinary research within the United States, and justified her continued research would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States.
