Success Stories: Our Firm Efficiently Helped a Chinese Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Molecular Biology Attain an EB-1A Petition Approval (PP Without RFE)


Client’s Testimonial:

“I’m very excited to hear this news. It won’t be possible without your expertise and hard working. Thank you very much.”

On April 28th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Molecular Biology (Approval Notice).


General Field: Molecular Biology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: California

Approval Notice Date: April 28th, 2016

Processing Time: 4 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Merely 3 days after we filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a postdoctoral fellow working in the field of molecular biology, we received notification of case approval.

The Perks of Premium Processing:

The reason for such quick processing is due to Premium Processing (PP), which means that the USCIS will take action on these cases within 15 days. Petitioners who opt for PP do not have to wait 4-9 months for their cases to be processed, allowing them to save plenty of time in the overall green card journey. To qualify for PP, one’s case must be filed under specific EB-1, EB-2 and EB-3 visa categories and fortunately for our client, EB-1A is one of them. By paying an additional $1,225 and submitting an I-907 form to the USCIS, he got to enjoy rapid adjudication, which is a great option for those who are unwilling or unable to wait several months for action to be taken on their case.

Laying a Solid Foundation:

Although the team at North America Immigration Law Group ( is extremely skilled at putting together strong EB-1A petitions, our clients’ credentials are the basis for a strong case. In this instance, we noted our client’s Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology to prove that he has the knowledge needed to carry out influential research that benefits the United States. We also listed the 269 citations gathered from his 5 published scientific articles and the 20 times he assessed the work of his peers.

To ensure that our client’s EB-1A case was as solid as could be, we included the six recommendation letters that he had gathered from independent and dependent experts in the field of molecular biology, all of whom are prominent professors. According to one of them: “The sustained success that [Client] has experienced in his career provides a certain guarantee that he will maintain his position at the top of his field for the foreseeable future. His background in molecular biology and significant research experience have allowed him to become one of the most distinguished researchers in his discipline today.” We also documented his research on molecular medicine that is applied in treating blood disorders, heart diseases, and musculoskeletal disorders. By proving that our client is an asset to the nation and that his findings are important to the U.S., most notably its medical sector, the USCIS was swayed to approve his EB-1A petition.

Seeing that our client now has an approved EB-1A petition, he is free to adjust his status for permanent residence without waiting several years for his priority date to become current. He is doing this by filing an I-485 application with the help of our comprehensive D.I.Y. Packet. We wish him the best with this and hope that the USCIS approves his application, enabling him to obtain his green card.
