General Field: Electronic Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Scientist

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Maryland

Approval Notice Date: November 23rd, 2016

Processing Time: 5 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), a research scientist from China only waited 5 days for notification of case approval. Despite costing $1,225 more, it enabled him to have action taken on his EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition within 15 days instead of the usual 4-9 months.

Step 1: Evaluation

When he approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) for help, we carefully evaluated his credentials to be sure that we could build a strong EB-1A case for him. Once we confirmed that we could, we initiated the contract and got to work compiling a wealth of information on his various achievements in the field of electronic engineering.

Step 2: Gathering Information

In order to prove to the USCIS that our client deserved to get one step closer to green card success, we collected as much relevant information as we could regarding his work in the field. The research summary that our client sent to us was especially helpful as it gave us insight into his work on developing new algorithms in wireless communications for cognitive radio networks and addressing wireless security issues. We also collected recommendation letters volunteered by six other experts working in the field. These letters supported the approval of our client’s EB-1A petition approval and contained statements such as this one: “[Client] has clearly risen above the level of average ability in his field, and his expertise could not be easily replaced. His expert knowledge of cognitive radio networks and their application to Wi-Fi technology makes his work vital to a world where wireless demand is continuing to increase.”

Step 3: Building the Case

Once we had everything we needed, we started building a strong EB-1A presentation for our client. Amongst other things, we listed the 134 citations to his work, his 10 published articles, and the whopping 136 times he judged the work of his peers. We also noted his Ph.D. in Computer Engineering and informed the USCIS that our client possesses the theoretical and practical skills to conduct impactful research that benefits the United States.

We are pleased that our meticulous efforts paved the way for case approval. Or client recently retained our I-485 services and we look forward to helping him navigate the final portion of the green card process. In the meantime, we wish him the best as he continues to advance the field of electronic engineering in the United States
