Case Summary:

When a Georgia-based postdoctoral fellow specializing in immunology contacted North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, we evaluated his credentials to get a better idea of how qualified he was to obtain approval in this tough visa category. Besides possessing a doctoral degree from his birth country of China, he was an expert researcher who focused on the elucidation of new therapeutic strategies for the treatment of cancer and autoimmune diseases. This is of particular significance to the United States since his research helps the scientific community in the US understand how to effectively treat major autoimmune diseases and cancers, especially through site-directed mutagenesis. We were convinced that the USCIS will see merit in our client’s numerous achievements and permit him to continue his research in the US.

We commenced work on our client’s case by gathering relevant information pertaining to his research. His publication and citation record was impressive –– 12 peer-reviewed scientific articles and a total citation number of 156 at the time of filing. Moreover, his role as a reviewer of the work of other researchers elevated his standing amongst his peers. When we filed his case, our client had already conducted 30 reviews and also served on the editorial board of 2 top-tier journals. To top it all off, he also possessed a patent. Undeniably, these substantial achievements strengthened his case to a great extent.

In order to build a strong EB-1A case for our client, we advised him to collect recommendation letters from other academic experts working in the field of immunology. An associate professor contributed the following comments: “I am contacting you regarding the research work of [Client], who has excelled in the field of molecular biology by expanding the molecular understanding of metabolic stress signaling in autoimmunity diseases. [Client] has established himself as one of the principal experts in this specialty.” This and 5 other letters contributed by expert immunologists conclusively acknowledged the merits of allowing our client to continue his research unhindered in the United States.

Premium Processing (PP)-based filing of our client’s EB1A petition ensured a speedy response from the adjudicating authorities. Our client’s EB1A petition was approved in 11 days, unlike the 4-9 months it would have taken without PP. We congratulate our client on his EB1A success and wish him well as he progresses the field of immunology.
