Case Summary:

A Chinese public health expert approached North America Immigration Law Group ( for help with her EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition.  Employed as a research scientist with a doctorate in public health, it is noteworthy that our client’s research enhances the United States’ understanding of multi-level factors related to health disparities and health risk behaviors. The first step in preparing her EB1A petition dossier involved assembling as much information as we could to build a watertight case to be presented to the USCIS. Some of the key points we chose to focus on were:

  1. We highlighted our client’s strong background in public health, demography, and the dynamics of health and society which had led to applications such as the utilization of social epidemiology and advanced quantitative methodologies to determine health risk behaviors and interventions. Based on the information we gathered, we convincingly demonstrated to the USCIS our client’s exemplary contributions made to the field of public health.
  2. Our client’s publication and citation records are highly impressive and reflected her position as a scientist of the highest caliber. At the time of filing, our client had amassed 118 citations to her work and had published 16 peer-reviewed scientific articles in high impact journals. These credentials proved to USCIS that our client is a frontrunner in the public health domain.
  3. Furthermore, our client had served as a peer reviewer for several journals and had conducted 35 reviews for prestigious scientific journals. This impressive peer review experience strengthened our client’s position as a renowned public health expert.
  4. We also incorporated recommendation lettersinto her EB-1A petition packet to highlight our argument that she is a force to be reckoned with. These letters were contributed by other influential and renowned experts in the field. The contents of one such letter stated that: [Client’s] steady record of major achievements in epidemiological and public health focused studies has propelled her to the forefront of this essential field, and it is clear that she will produce such influential research for many years to come.

An EB1A petition package with a request for 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 14 days after filing. We congratulate our client for securing a highly sought-after EB-1A approval notice and we wish her the best as she continues to progress in the field of public health in the US.
