Case Summary:

A respected principal engineer from China hired North America Immigration Law Group to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. With extensive experience in the field of biomedical engineering and excellent credentials, it did not take our legal team very long to verify that he qualified to file the first step of his green card case under this visa category.

One of the first things that we did was to advise our client to gather recommendation letters from other influential engineers in his field. The five testimonials that he gathered were included in our carefully worded EB1A petition packet to the USICS. They served as evidence that our client’s work is of the utmost importance to the United States and that his findings are beneficial to the country’s medical sector. A statement extracted from one of the letters clearly supports our claim: “As [Client] has already influenced clinical research surrounding osteoporosis on a grand scale, it is in the best interest of the United States to permit him to continue his research endeavors. Without his sustained efforts, it is likely that progress in treating and preventing osteoporosis will be significantly set back.”

Besides well-founded recommendation letters, our petition packet also contained a wealth of information on our client’s various professional triumphs: the 678 citations gathered from his 30 published scientific articles, and his peer review experience. At the time of filing, our client served on the editorial board of three journals and had conducted nearly three dozen peer reviews for multiple high impact scientific publications. His various review activities distinctly proved that he is a highly respected and valued member of the field.

Because our client decided to upgrade his EB-1A case to Premium Processing (PP) two weeks after we filed the case on his behalf, he received an approval notice from Nebraska Service Center 11 days after the upgrade. We are very pleased with the outcome, and we congratulate our client for getting significantly closer to his end goal of permanent residency. We wish him and his wife well as they embark on the final leg of the green card journey: the I-485 application.
