Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group ( was hired by a postdoctoral fellow from China to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. With many years of experience researching the field of chemical engineering, our client seemed like a suitable candidate for this visa category. Despite his impressive professional portfolio, we had to be sure that we could build a strong case on his behalf as it is no secret that EB-1A is one of the toughest visa categories to obtain petition approval. After going through our client’s research and achievements in the field, we determined that we would present the following to the USCIS:

  1. Publication Count: At the time of filing, our client had published a dozen articles in prominent scientific journals. His articles were well-received by researchers in the US and abroad.
  2. Citation Record: We used Google Scholar to determine the number of times our client’s findings were cited by other researchers. When we filed his case, this number stood at 143 citations.
  3. Judging the Work of Others: Only top-level experts in their field are invited to assess the work of their peers and our client’s notable record (16 reviews at the time of filing) proved his high standing in the field.
  4. Recommendation Letters: The six letters that were incorporated into our client’s EB-1A petition were contributed by other experts working in the field of chemical engineering. This is what one of them had to say about our client’s work: “… the United States spends a considerable portion of its budget on military and national security. […] To this end, [Client’s] research is of great value, because he has established a method for facilitating the fabrication of novel sensors with photonic crystal suspensions. These sensors are highly sensitive and tunable, making them particularly valuable to national security efforts…”

Additional evidence such as our client’s research results, doctoral degree, and CV were also included. Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), Texas Service Center only spent 14 days reviewing our client’s EB-1A petition before granting their approval. We congratulate him for overcoming this significant hurdle in the green card process and we wish him well as he continues to apply his work towards drug delivery vehicles for anticancer drugs or high sensitive biosensors.
