Case Summary:

Thanks to Premium Processing, the USCIS only spent three days reviewing our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition packet before granting their approval. Our client, a process engineer from China, had the professional credentials needed to apply for his green card under this visa category: 1715 citations collected from his 42 peer-reviewed scientific articles, and 39 instances of peer review service.

North America Immigration Law Group ( put together a meticulous EB-1A petition dossier that detailed various reasons why our client is an asset to the United States. Our legal team started with a breakdown of his many research projects on renewable energy harvesting devices and self-powered sensors. We proved that his research addresses some of the country’s most pressing issues in understanding mechanical and thermal energy harvesting to power wireless or portable electronics. Furthermore, we strengthened our EB-1A petition by encouraging our client to invite experts in his field of materials engineering to contribute recommendation letters. Four experts lent their support, one of whom wrote, “Due to the high quality of his work and the insight that it has provided to me, I can verify the assertion that [Client’s] work is of the utmost importance to the field at a level that few of his peers can match. Therefore, the uninterrupted continuation of his work is vital to the interests of any country that wants to remain one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world.”

The approval of our client’s EB-1A petition is yet another indication of our law firm’s effectiveness. We congratulate our client on his approval notice and wish him all the best as he continues to progress his field of materials engineering.
