General Field: Materials Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Researcher

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Delaware

Approval Notice Date: July 19th, 2017

Case Summary:

Just 9 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a Chinese postdoctoral researcher, the USCIS approved it. The reason why it did not take the expected 4-9 months is because our client paid them $1,225 more for Premium Processing (PP). Filing one’s petition under PP guarantees action will be taken on it within 15 calendar days.

What did the EB1A petition contain?

Our goal was to prove to the USCIS that our client has extraordinary ability in her chosen field of materials science. We did this by presenting her various accomplishments in a clear and concise manner. For instance, we listed the 106 times her 6 publications were cited and the 19 times she conducted peer reviews for well-known scientific periodicals. Perhaps one of the most important aspects of our client’s EB1A petition encompassed her work on developing and evaluating novel materials for next generation information technology. After carefully reviewing her research summary, we concluded that her findings benefit the US in terms of development of next generation bio-sensing and computer memory devices.

Supporting our case:

In a bid to support our claim that our client is an asset to the US, we encouraged her to seek external support via recommendation letters. As part of our services, we helped her select suitable recommenders and to our delight, six expert materials scientists agreed to lend their support, one of whom stated: “[Client] is instrumental in this regard, as her ongoing studies hold immense value for technology companies in the U.S. and abroad.”

Taking the final step:

We congratulate our client for obtaining EB1A petition approval, and we thank her for choosing us to represent her case. We wish her the very best as she files an I-485 application with the help of our D.I.Y. Packet, and we wish her well as she continues to conduct impactful research in the US.
