Case Summary:

Just 9 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a Ph.D. researcher in Canada, the USCIS approved his case. The reason for such rapid adjudication is thanks to Premium Processing (PP), a paid service offered by the USCIS that allows petitioners to have action taken on their cases within 15 days. Even so, we have no doubt that our strong presentation of our client’s skills and research lent a hand in case approval. These are some of the things we focused on when building his EB-1A case:

  1. We incorporated six recommendation letters contributed by other well-known researchers into our client’s petition packet. We wanted the USCIS to know just how important our client’s work is to the field of mechanical engineering, and who better to confirm this fact than other experts in the field? According to one of these experts: “[Client’s] past accomplishments clearly indicate a record of future achievements that will prove to be even more important to our understanding of vehicle stability and safety. It is my expert opinion that [Client’s] future work will not only continue to improve the driving experience of the average American but will also ensure the safety and well-being of drivers in this country.”
  2. Our client’s publication record was also highlighted. When we filed his case, he had already published 10 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 7 peer-reviewed conference papers, 1 technical paper and 3 Chinese patents.
  3. His peer review record and citation count were also noted. At the time of filing, these numbers stood at 75 and 152 respectively.
  4. Perhaps one of the most important elements of our client’s EB-1A petition had to do with his research. We carefully accounted for our client’s work and demonstrated to the USCIS the significance of enhancing road vehicles’ stability and traffic safety. We proved that our client’s research addresses some of the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding how to best improve vehicle active safety and developing energy-efficient electric vehicles (EVs).

We congratulate our client for obtaining an EB-1A petition approval and we wish him the best as he undergoes immigrant visa processing (IVP). To find out more about IVP, head to
