Success Stories: EB-1A Petition Approved for Scientist in New Jersey with 164 Citations in the Field of Genetics


Client’s Testimonial:

“I checked the website and it is approved. Thank you so much for your effort! Your team is very professional!”

On October 24th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Scientist in the Field of Genetics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Genetics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Scientist

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New Jersey

Approval Notice Date: October 24th, 2017

Processing Time: 11 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), a Chinese scientist only waited 11 days before receiving notification of EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval. PP is an add-on option by the USCIS that guarantees action will be taken on the petition within 15 calendar days. All petitioners have to do is pay the USCIS an extra $1,225 and submit Form I-907.

What did the EB1A petition packet contain?

We worked diligently to gather a wealth of information related to our client’s achievements in the field of genetics. By the time we were ready to file her EB1A petition, we had amassed plenty of information such as her citation count, publication record, and peer review experience. At the time of filing, these numbers stood at 164 citations, 15 publications, and 20 peer reviews. Not just that, we carefully reviewed and summarized her studies on developing treatments for rare genetic diseases. Our goal was to prove to the USCIS that our client’s extraordinary research efforts address some of the United States’ most important issues in understanding the molecular and genetic mechanisms of disease.

In support of our client’s EB1A petition, several experts in the field of genetics contributed recommendation letters. These letters contained bold statements that advocated for the approval of our client’s petition. For instance, this is what a prominent professor noted in his letter: “In summary, [Client] is a top performer in her field and must remain in the United States for the continuation of her research. Without [Client], the United States would certainly be at a disadvantage well into the future”

Taking the final step:

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our client for securing a highly sought-after EB1A approval.  The approval of this petition is another example of North America Immigration Law Group’s excellent record of helping our clients get closer to achieving their green card goals. We also thank our client for retaining us to help her and her dependent file their I-485 applications. Once the I-485 applications are approved, they will become American permanent residents.
