Success Stories: EB-1A Petition Approved for Chinese Research Scientist in Massachusetts in the Field of Biochemistry (117 Citations, 10 Publications)


Client’s Testimonial:

“I really want to express my sincerest thanks to you. Thank you for your professional, hardworking, and very careful preparation on my case.”

On January 8th, 2018, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Research Scientist in the Field of Biochemistry (Approval Notice).

General Field: Biochemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Scientist

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: January 8th, 2018

Processing Time: 13 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

It did not take very long for the USCIS to decide that our client deserved to get one step closer to green card success. They approved his EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) in just 13 days, and we have no doubt that our careful presentation of our client’s credentials played a big role in securing petition approval.

What did the EB1A petition contain?

Amongst other things, it detailed our client’s various achievements such as the 10 published articles in his name, the 117 times they were cited, and the 29 times he judged the work of other researchers. Moreover, the petition contained information related to his work on the molecular mechanisms of drugs and various diseases. We made it our goal to prove to the USCIS that our client’s research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding the molecular and biochemical basis of deadly diseases such as the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Not just that, we persuaded the USCIS that our client is an asset to the United States and that he should be allowed to conduct his research in the country.

Addition evidence:

Six detailed recommendation letters served as evidence that our client’s work in the field of biochemistry is highly respected. These letters were signed by his peers, all of whom advocated for the approval of his EB1A petition. They agreed that our client’s achievements are notable and that he is an influential researcher. This is what a prominent professor noted about our client: “Clearly, [Client] is one of the top scientists currently working in the field of molecular biology.”

The final step:

Not long after our client received notification of EB1A petition approval, he retained us to help him and his dependent prepare and file their I-485 applications. As the final step in the green card process, approved I-485 applications mean that they will becomes US permanent residents. We guarantee our continued support and dedication on this final leg of the journey, and we thank our client for working with us.
