Case Summary:

Not long ago, a prominent research fellow from China hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him with his I-140 petition under the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) visa category. We had to demonstrate that our client’s research is of great value of the United States and that he is an asset to the nation.

First step in petition preparation:

One of the first things we did was encourage our client to reach out to other experts in the field of molecular biology. We needed him to persuade them to provide us with recommendation letters in support of his EB-1A petition. As part of our services, we helped him shortlist these recommenders based on two simple criteria: they had to be familiar with his research and/or had worked with him. The five letters that our client managed to obtain all verified the significance of his work on the biological mechanisms behind diabetes and lung cancer. For example, here is what one of his recommenders stated: “[Client’s] research is directly benefitting the development of better therapeutic strategies. When viewing the accomplishments of his career, it is clear that [Client] is a remarkable researcher. Considering the large numbers of Americans who struggle with diabetes and cancer, it is important that [Client] is able to continue his work uninterrupted.”

Compiling relevant data:

Besides recommendation letters, our client’s EB-1A petition packet was composed of the following: data on his doctoral degree, his 14 abstracts and 18 publications that had gathered 253 citations, and the 30 times he conducted peer reviews for scientific journals. Using the wealth of information we had accumulated, we established that our client’s work benefits the United States medical sector (in terms of new treatment designs) as well as the international scientific community (his investigations progress the research of other researchers).

Celebrating petition approval:

We congratulate our client for obtaining an EB-1A petition approval. To make things even sweeter, he received notification of case approval merely 6 days after it was filed. The accelerated adjudication was largely thanks to Premium Processing, but we have no doubt that the combination of our client’s strong credentials and our attention-to-detail resulted in his approved petition. We thank our client for choosing to work with us, and we wish him well with his continued research.
