Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and extensive experience conducting research in the same field, our client had suitable credentials to file his I-140 petition under the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa category. North America Immigration Law Group ( helped him attain an approval notice just 4 days after his petition was filed, and we have no doubt that our meticulous presentation of his strong credentials lent a hand in case approval.

Obtaining petition approval:

It is no secret that EB-1A has a very high standard of law and that it is not easy attaining petition approval. Our legal team and support staff worked diligently to prove that our client deserved to get one step closer to his green card via this visa category by demonstrating the following:

  1. Our client’s credentials included 19 journal articles and 6 conference articles that had collected 308 citations at the time of filing. We also listed the 17 times he conducted peer reviews for well-known scientific journals. These impressive figures demonstrated the importance of his work to other members of the electrical engineering community.
  2. Our client was responsible for providing us with a research summary that explained his research focus. Based on that, we determined that his findings on semiconductor optoelectronic materials and devices are essential to the American development of novel materials and optoelectronic devices that have a wide range of applications, especially in defense.
  3. As we wanted to present an airtight case to the USCIS, we needed supporting evidence to prove that our client’s work is of great importance to the nation. We did this by prompting him to collect recommendation letters from other influential electrical engineers. Our client persuaded five of his peers to lend their support, one of whom stated that “I hope I have shown through my description of [Client’s] accomplishments how critical his work has been to advancing the electrical engineering field. Overall, he has shown himself to be a vital contributor to the field whose continued work is certain to lead to further progress in infrared detector design and enhancement. Therefore, it is without hesitation that I offer my strong endorsement in support of [Client’s] ongoing research in the U.S.”

In conclusion:

This EB-1A petition approval is another example of our firm’s commitment to helping every client get one step closer to permanent residency. We congratulate our client for overcoming this significant hurdle in the green card process and wish him well with his continued research.
