Case Summary:

Just 9 days after filing, a recent client of ours—an assistant scientist working in the field of natural products chemistry—was notified by the USCIS that her EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition had been approved. The rapid adjudication was made possible with the help of Premium Processing (PP), a top-up option whereby the processing time is significantly reduced from 4-9 months to 15 days.

With a Ph.D. in Microbiology from a leading university in her birth country of China and years of accompanying research experience, our client proved to be a suitable candidate for EB-1A. After an attorney-client relationship was established, we started assembling as much relevant information as we could to build a surefire case. We decided to highlight the following key points:

  1. Publication Record: At the time of filing the petition, our client had nine peer-reviewed scientific articles under her authorship—a productive and exemplary record that sets her apart from other researchers in the field.
  2. Citation Count: Through Google Scholar, we found that her publications had amassed an outstanding 157 citations at the time of filing, which proved other researchers around the globe are benefitting from her studies.
  3. Peer Review Experience: Furthermore, she had already conducted 12 peer reviews for a variety of high-impact scientific journals. As only trusted academics in the field are invited to judge the work of their peers, our client’s impressive record proved to the USCIS that she is a leader in the field.

Our client sought help from esteemed figures in the field of natural products chemistry to endorse her EB1A petition. These individuals contributed letters of recommendation where they explained the nature of her research that addresses the therapeutic value of natural products and identification of new compounds against multidrug resistant pathogens. Her achievements in the field elicited words of praise from the recommenders, with one of them writing: “…her scientific pursuits are conducive to improving the wellbeing of people suffering from cancer. It is plain to see that [Client]’s research is of profound merit. As such, it should be supported in every possible way.”

We congratulate our client as she celebrates her EB-1A petition approval, and we wish her the best as she embarks on the last step of the green card journey; filing the I-485 application.
