“It is such a great news to me. I fully appreciate your help along the way and will recommend your service to my other friends.”

On February 18th, 2018, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Research Assistant Professor in the Field of Aerospace Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Aerospace Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Assistant Professor

Country of Origin: China

Approval Notice Date: February 28th, 2018

Processing Time: 8 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

“Because of his successful research in the past, and his continued contributions in the present, [Client’s] work is characterized with noteworthy merit and is central for our field.” –Assistant Professor, USA

“The gains that he continues to provide significantly advance the field and the international research community, and it is vital that his work not experience any avoidable delays or setbacks.” –Professor, USA

“…that he has become an essential figure in his field.” –Engineer, Spain

The quotes above were extracted from recommendation letters signed by well-known experts in the field of aerospace engineering. Totaling six letters, these recommendations played a key role in helping our client, a research assistant professor from China, secure EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval.

Besides letters of recommendation, North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) included a wealth of information in our client’s personalized EB1A petition dossier. From details regarding his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering to information on his work and teaching in academia, we worked diligently to build a strong case for our client. We also noted the 144 times his 17 publications were cited as well as the 25 times he judged the work of his peers. Essentially, we adopted a unique legal strategy that highlighted our client’s background, field of expertise, and various achievements.

Thanks to the customized petition we put together for our client, we were able to convince the USCIS that our client’s work advances our understanding of how to improve the safety, durability, and efficiency of machines that experience icing damage. Due to Premium Processing (PP), our client only waited 8 days for them to adjudicate his petition. We congratulate him for overcoming the first hurdle in the lengthy green card process, and we wish him the best as he completes the journey by filing an I-485 application.
