Case Summary:

A postdoctoral research associate from China obtained EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval thanks to North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG). Our team worked meticulously to build and submit a strong case on our client’s behalf, and we are pleased that he is now one big step closer to green card success.

Building an EB1A case:

Our goal was to prove that our client possesses extraordinary ability in the field of chemical engineering and that his work is extremely beneficial to the United States. We went about this by collecting a wealth of information pertaining to his achievements in the field. For example, his EB1A petition packet contained data on his 13 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 1 book chapter, and 3 government reports. It was also composed of information regarding the 111 citations gathered from his work and the 33 times he conducted peer reviews for a variety of scientific periodicals.

Gathering supporting evidence:

To fortify our client’s EB1A case, we needed external support, and we obtained this from other expert chemical engineers. This was done via recommendation letters, all of which praised our client’s research on improving the analysis and fabrication of microfluidic systems and micro-sized particles. For instance, this is what a couple of his recommenders wrote:

“His continuing work will be of great advantage to the United States, and as such he must be retained within its scientific community.”

“Due to this impressive dossier, it is certain that [Client] will provide the field with important breakthroughs as his research proceeds. For these reasons and more, [Client] is an asset to the United States and to chemical engineering science.”

We congratulate our client for obtaining EB1A petition approval. Overcoming this significant hurdle in the green card process has led our client closer to a green card. We wish him the best as he files an I-485 application, and we wish him well as he continues to progress the field of chemical engineering.
