Case Summary:

Not long ago, North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a software engineer from China. Our client’s research ventures, academic background, and plan to continuously advance his field of computer science made him a suitable candidate for EB-1A.  

Premium Processing:

One of this case’s highlights was the fact that Nebraska Service Center approved our client’s petition merely five days after we submitted it on his behalf. We have no doubt that the combination of Premium Processing (PP), our client’s credentials, and our meticulous presentation paved the way for rapid case approval (within 15 days as opposed to 4-9 months).

EB-1A Petition Dossier:

A main portion of our duties involved putting together a strong EB1A petition packet and submitting it to the USCIS. We made sure to include only the most flattering bits of information on our client, including, but not limited to: his scholarly accomplishments, research endeavors, testimonials attesting to the value of his work, and veritable proof that his research efforts are useful to other researchers besides himself.

For instance, we made sure to highlight the number of our client’s publications which had gathered 200+ citation and the 10+ times he conducted peer reviews for scientific periodicals. We also listed his doctorate in computer science and engineering, and documented his work. We then summarized everything we gathered into a well-written petition letter and demonstrated to the USCIS that our client is irreplaceable and that his work unquestionably benefits the United States.

To fortify our argument, we mobilized other experts in the field of computer science. We prompted our client to obtain recommendation letters from them and six experts agreed to lend their support, one of whom stated, “[Client] is a highly respected researcher in his discipline because the breadth of his knowledge in computer science is only matched by the depth of his acumen in every individual facet of his sub-field. Only a handful of academics can boast such an accomplished record, and his advances in the fields serve as a veritable guarantee of the high quality of the work he will continue to produce in the coming years.”

In Conclusion:

We are pleased that our efforts paid off in the best way possible: an EB-1A petition approval notice. We thank our client for selecting us to represent his case, and we wish him the best as he continues to progress his field of computer science.
