Case Summary:

A recent client of ours was described as “… a talented and innovative engineer, and shares his scientific knowledge, through publication, to our broader research community. His unique multipronged expertise in automation and mechanical engineering with particular emphasis on the engineering of robotics and control provides considerable value in this rapidly emerging field of medicine. […] To retain such an individual in the United States would allow the US and its many partners to maintain a leadership in medicine, engineering and science.”

This quote was extracted from a recommendation letter volunteered by a professor in Canada. He and five other influential members of the robotics engineering research community contributed testimonials to support our client’s EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. Although our client—a senior software engineer from China—possessed suitable qualifications to obtain an EB-1A approval, he needed our help to present a clear and concise case to the USCIS.

Amongst other things, we focused on our client’s citation count (136 citations), publication record (12 published scientific papers), and peer review experience (25 reviews conducted) at the time of filing. We also detailed his research on medical robotics and proved to the USCIS that his research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding how to effectively develop robotic machinery for use in the medical field. Because we were able to demonstrate just how important our client’s findings are to various American industries, the USCIS was persuaded to approve his EB-1A petition. We are pleased that our client is now significantly closer to achieving his dream of becoming a US permanent resident. We wish him the best with his I-485 application and thank him for working with North America Immigration Law Group (
