“Thank you for notifying me about the good news! I appreciate your professional service!”

On March 2nd, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Field of Genetics (Approval Notice).

General Field: Genetics

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Approval Notice Date: March 2nd, 2016

Case Summary:

Largely due to Premium Processing, our client (a postdoctoral research fellow from China) received an approval notice from Texas Service Center in just six days. Even so, we have no doubt that our client’s solid credentials and our meticulous presentation played a role in this EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) case approval.

North America Immigration Law Group’s Role:

As the attorney-on-record, our main duty was to present a convincing case to the USICS. We started by compiling recommendation letters offered by other experts in our client’s field of genetics. These letters supplied us with substantial evidence that our client’s research efforts on developing cutting-edge methods to understand human genetic variation and how this relates to disease were essential to the United States. According to one of our client’s recommenders: “With such revolutionary results, [Client] has established himself as one of the premier scholars in the field of public health. His research successes have cemented him as an undeniable authority in the field […] He has certainly surpassed any reasonable expectations for a scientist in this area, and I fully anticipate greater work from him in the future.”

Accompanying these letters were detailed explanations of our client’s various qualifications. For instance, we noted the 510 times his results were cited by other researchers. We also listed his 8 publications and the nearly two dozen times he assessed the work of his peers for high impact scientific periodicals.

Persuading the USCIS:

Once we had gathered all the relevant information, we summarized what we knew into a well-written petition letter that demonstrated the significance of our client’s work to the United States. We established that his findings have a profound impact on the country’s healthcare system and that they are shaping the overall field of genetics.

Gratifying Decision:

We are pleased that the USCIS decided to approve our EB-1A petition. This approval is an encouraging illustration of our firm’s guarantee to offer every client a fighting chance at attaining a green card. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our client for choosing us to represent his EB-1A case, and we wish him well with his continued research.
