On April 4th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for an Assistant Scientist in the Field of Atmospheric Sciences (Approval Notice).

General Field: Atmospheric Sciences

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Scientist

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

Approval Notice Date: April 4th, 2016

Processing Time: 12 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A well-known assistant scientist working in the field of atmospheric sciences approached North America Immigration Law Group ( when he decided that he wanted to obtain green cards for himself and his spouse. The first step in the green card process involved filing an I-140 petition. Based on the strength of our client’s credentials, we filed his petition under the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa category. Thanks to Premium Processing, we received an approval notice from the USCIS merely 12 days after the petition was filed.

EB-1A Petition Contents:

As with all our clients, we helped this scientist select a handful of experts working in his field to serve as recommenders. Once we had selected the candidates, we urged our client to contact them for recommendation letters. All six experts whom he contacted agreed to lend their support, and their letters were incorporated into our well-prepared EB-1A petition packet. One of our client’s recommenders noted the importance of his research by discussing the following: “Climate change is an alarming phenomena that grows in prominence. Understanding it, both in the past and now, is the first step to mitigate its effects. [Client’s] work in this field makes important contributions to advancing climate change research. The world will continue to benefit from his insights so long as his ongoing efforts are properly facilitated.”

Alongside these recommendation letters stood details of our client’s various achievements. We listed his M.S. and Ph.D. in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, the 1397 citations to his work, the 20 times he conducted peer reviews for prominent scientific journals, and the 27 publications to his name. We also detailed his research on climate changes, and demonstrated the importance of his findings to the United States.

Final Step in the Green Card Process:

Not long after our client’s EB-1A petition was approved, he engaged our services to file I-485 applications for himself and his wife. Once the USCIS approves their applications, they will receive their green cards. We join them as they eagerly wait for the USCIS to take action on their applications.
