Case Summary:

“[Client] is one of the few food and science researchers who has consistently made concrete progress in such a monumental capacity, and I have unwavering confidence in her prolonged work on enhancing comparative and evaluation strategies for better understanding the chemical properties of essential oil components for industrial gain, medicinal purposes, and far more.”

This quote is excerpted from one of the recommendation letters we included in our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition packet. This, along with several other letters, demonstrated our client’s influential position in her field of food science. Her research on essential oils, liquid transfusion technology, and microemulsions addresses food safety as well as delivery systems for essential oils and bioactive components on a national and global level.

North America Immigration Law Group further established the significance of our client’s research by highlighting her impressive citation count and publication record, which at the time of filing were 342 citations and 23 peer-reviewed articles. We also demonstrated her influence in her field by detailing the 50 instances in which she assessed the work of other food scientists.

As additional proof of our client’s skills and knowledge, the EB-1A petition contained details of her Ph.D. in in Food Science and Technology. Our client elected to file under Premium Processing, which greatly reduces the wait time for a decision, but we also believe that our highly detailed and persuasive petition lent a hand in the swift approval of this case.
