Case Summary:

A Chinese materials science expert approached North America Immigration Law Group ( for help with his EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition.  He is employed as an R&D engineer and has a doctorate in materials science. It is noteworthy that our client’s research enhances the United States’ understanding of polymer composites and hybrid polymer-glass optical devices. As a preview to preparing his EB1A petition dossier, we evaluated his credentials in order to build a watertight case to be presented before the USCIS. Some of the key points we chose to focus on were:

  1. The fruits of his extensive research, such as bendable glass and green building materials, which hold immense promise for the United States were duly highlighted. Based on the information we gathered, we convincingly demonstrated to the USCIS our client’s exemplary contributions made to the highly complex field of material sciences.
  2. Our client’s publication and citation records are highly impressive and reflected his position as a scientist of the highest caliber. At the time of filing, our client had amassed 355 citations to his work and had published 16 peer-reviewed scientific articles in high impact journals. To add to this list of extraordinary achievements, he had also presented 18 conference papers. These publications established our client as a frontrunner in the materials science domain.
  3. Furthermore, our client had served as a peer reviewer for several journals and had conducted 30 reviews for prestigious scientific journals. This mirrored the international influence his work had attracted among his peers.
  4. We also incorporated recommendation lettersinto his EB-1A petition packet to highlight our argument that he is a leader in the field of materials science. These letters were contributed by other influential and renowned experts in the field. The contents of one such letter stated that: Clearly, [Client] is a leader among his peers and he is largely responsible for a significant amount of the field’s most recent progress. I fully believe that without [Client’s] productivity, materials science institutions will be at a distinct disadvantage in overcoming the vital challenges that they are currently facing.”

An EB1A petition package with a Premium Processing (PP) request was presented to the USCIS. PP is an option offered by the USCIS whereby the processing time is significantly reduced and petitioners need not wait longer than 15 days for action to be taken on their cases. The PP route enabled our client to secure an EB1A approval merely 12 days after filing. We congratulate our client for securing a highly sought-after EB-1A approval notice and we wish him the best as he continues to progress the field of materials science in the US.
