On March 28th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Research Scientist in the Field of Materials Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Materials Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Scientist

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: March 28th, 2016

Processing Time: 14 Days (Premium Processing Requested)


Case Summary:

A talented research scientist from China approached North America Immigration Law Group ( when he decided that he wanted to obtain American permanent residency. He knew exactly which visa category he wanted to file his I-140 petition under and after carefully evaluating his credentials, we confirmed that the best way forward was via EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability).

Case Details:

As with all our cases, we helped our client select potential candidates who could contribute recommendation letters to support his EB-1A petition. We needed the shortlisted recommenders to be experts in the field of materials science, be familiar with our client’s work through his publications, and/or had worked with our client. Our client obtained recommendation letters from the five preferred recommenders, all of whom attested to the value of his work to the United States. One of them described our client as “…one of the most advanced researchers working in this area, and the continued improvement of the materials science field will benefit significantly from his continued research.”

These recommendation letters were accompanied by various other bits of information on our client’s illustrious career. From his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering, to the value of his research to the American aerospace industry, we detailed it all. Furthermore, we documented the impact of our client’s work on other researchers in his field by listing the 35 times he conducted peer reviews, the 276 citations to his work, and his 5 publications.

Premium Processing:

Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), our client received notification of case approval merely 14 days after we filed the petition on his behalf. PP is a paid option offered by the USCIS. By paying them $1,225 more, petitioners get to enjoy rapid adjudication (a decision will be made within 15 days). This is the perfect option for petitioners unwilling to wait 4-9 months for the USCIS to make a decision on their case. The catch is that only certain EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 visa categories qualify for PP, and EB-1A is one of them. We congratulate our client for obtaining an EB-1A petition approval, and we wish him the best as he continues to progress his field of materials science.
