Case Summary:

Merely 6 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a geophysicist, he received an approval notice.

Premium Processing:

Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), our client did not have to wait 4-9 months for the USCIS to take action on his case and instead, received notification of case approval within 15 calendar days. Only petitioners filing their I-140 petitions under certain visa categories qualify for PP (EB-1A is one of them). All they have to do is submit Form I-907 and pay the USCIS an additional $1,225 to be eligible for rapid adjudication. As part of our services, we handle every aspect of the upgrade on behalf of our clients.

EB-1A Petition Dossier:

We documented our client’s two M.S. degrees and his Ph.D. degree, the 237 citations to his work, the nearly two dozen times he assessed the work of his peers, and the 12 publications to his name. Furthermore, we detailed his research on characterizing and fabricating materials and devices, and convinced the USCIS that our client’s work benefits the country’s exploration of oil reservoirs. To strengthen our client’s EB-1A petition, we encouraged him to reach out to other leading physicists who were familiar with his work or had worked with him. We needed our client to ask them for recommendation letters that confirmed the value of his research not only to the field, but to the U.S. as a whole. According to one of these experts: “I am a strong advocate for the unimpeded continuation of [Client’s] research, as his work is indeed excellent. He is most definitely an important contributor to the scientific community and will continue to influence his field.

Last Step towards a Green Card:

With the approval of his EB-1A petition, our client is now significantly closer to green card success. We are currently helping him prepare the necessary documents to file his I-485 application, and we look forward to helping him attain permanent residency.
