Case Summary:

A recent client of North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) received EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval within two weeks after filing the petition. As a research engineer in Georgia, he has time and again proven his extraordinary ability in the field of computer engineering. Furthermore, he has been rightly recognized as “a leader and an innovator…bringing all sorts of new ideas to the field of computer engineering and helping to make today and tomorrow’s technology more optimized and efficient for a given functionality to be realized on an integrated system.”

What made him a good EB1A candidate?

  1. Our client’s research carries the potential to revolutionize computational technology by improving the performance of computer chips through an enhanced understanding of circuit and system performance of microprocessors. The importance of his work to the United States cannot be understated, as noted by a professor in his recommendation letter: “…it is obvious that new innovations in the IT field are crucial to ensure that the U.S. remains an economic and technological leader. [Client] is one of the people helping the U.S. accomplish this goal through his novel look at cellular neural network (CNN) augmented by new technologies to succeed current CMOS chip designs.”
  2. Our client’s outstanding studies have resulted in 42 peer-reviewed scientific papers and 1 peer-reviewed abstract. The fact that these publications have been cited 123 times indicate that his findings are not going unnoticed by other researchers in the field.
  3. Our client has impressive experience as a judge of others’ works. By the time we filed his EB1A petition, he had conducted at least 16 peer reviews for several prominent journals in the field.

The USCIS was duly impressed by our client’s stellar credentials and granted him EB1A approval in just 13 days. The swift adjudication was the result of Premium Processing, a paid option that guarantees action will be taken on the case within 15 calendar days. Now, the only thing that stands between our client and his green card is the I-485 application, which he plans to file with the help of our complimentary Do-It-Yourself packet. We wish him the best with this and thank him for working with us.
