Case Summary:

A research associate from China contacted North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an EB-1A petition on his behalf. Our client opted for Premium Processing and received an approval notice 11 days later.

We worked diligently on our client’s I-140 petition dossier, which detailed his Ph.D. in Physiochemistry and the 640 citations his 20 published papers had collected. Most importantly, we explained our client’s research on synthesizing and developing specifically shaped mesoporous silica nanomaterials. We demonstrated that his work impacts the treatment of cancer, bacterial infections, and other conditions, making it of great value to the United States. To further strengthen his case, we helped our client select and contact recommenders from his field of materials chemistry and obtain their testimonials. One of these recommenders wrote, “Nanoenabled drug delivery technology represents the future of the pharmaceutical industry. This technology offers improved solubility, pharmacokinetics, and biodistribution compared to small molecule drugs. […] Moreover, the people of the United States and the world also owe [Client] a debt, for his research contributes to the development of new medical technology that improves health by inventing novel methods of pharmaceutical delivery.”

Thanks to our meticulous efforts, our client is more than halfway through the complex process of obtaining a green card. We wish him and his family the best in their journey.
