Case Summary:

A gifted applied scientist from China hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. Our client, who has a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, has spent many years working in the field of computer engineering and has amassed numerous professional accomplishments that made him a suitable candidate for EB-1A.

Forming a strong case:

We were hired to put together a strong EB-1A petition packet for our client and we did so in an effective and efficient manner. We noted his 10 journal articles, 5 conference articles, and 1 conference abstract as well as the 181 citations collected from his work. We also listed the 40 times he conducted peer reviews for a variety of high impact scientific journals which proved the significance of his opinions to other experts working in the field.

To make our client’s EB-1A petition even stronger, we incorporated recommendation letters furnished by a handful of his peers. One letter stated that “… His work is groundbreaking in the field of computer engineering, and is very useful for medical research. As his mathematical models address serious health concerns in the United States, it is evident that his research is beneficial.” This and the five other letters that our client obtained confirmed the importance of his research to not just the field of computer engineering but to the U.S. as a whole. Part of our services was also composed of reviewing and accounting for our client’s research projects on the development of machine learning and mathematical modeling-based technologies. We demonstrated that his findings have various applications such as the establishment of a text-mining-based network capable of quickly comparing millions of documents on protein-protein interactions for myocardial infarction.

Obtaining petition approval:

From the date we submitted our client’s EB-1A petition to the date he received an approval notice from Nebraska Service Center, our client only waited 21 days. Such rapid adjudication is largely thanks to Premium Processing (PP), an add-on service that allows petitioners to have action taken on their cases within 15 days instead of the usual 4-9 months. The reason why our client waited longer than 15 days is because he chose to upgrade his petition to PP 10 days after we initially filed it, and not at the very beginning. We congratulate our client for obtaining an in-demand EB-1A petition approval and we wish him well as he adjusts his status for permanent residence.
