Success Stories: Research Assistant Scientist in Florida in the Field of Environmental Epidemiology Obtains EB-1A Approval 2 Weeks after Filing (PP Requested)


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thanks again for your helps!”

On June 5th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Research Assistant Scientist in the Field of Environmental Epidemiology (Approval Notice).

General Field: Environmental Epidemiology

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Assistant Scientist

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Texas Service Centre (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Florida

Approval Notice Date: June 5th, 2017

Processing Time: 14 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Time and time again, [Client] has conducted major studies that have major health implications for people around the world. There are few scientists in the world with the ability or inclination to match [client]’s accomplishments.”

I have no doubt that [Client] will continue to conduct studies that lead to healthier mothers and children, as well as to better public health outcomes in general in the United States and abroad.

These are statements extracted from recommendation letters contributed by experts working in the field of environmental epidemiology. These letters praised the work of our client, a research assistant scientist from China, who hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him secure a green card. After evaluating his credentials, we determined that he should file his I-140 petition (the first step in the green card process) through the EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) category.

With a doctoral degree in the bag, our client has certainly contributed aplenty to the field of environmental epidemiology. One way we proved this to the USCIS was by highlighting his tremendous publication record of 26 peer-reviewed scientific articles, all of which were published in high impact scientific journals. We also noted that he had conducted 40 peer reviews, and we listed his citation record which was obtained from his Google Scholar page: this number stood at 239 at the time of filing.

Another way we convinced the USCIS that our client’s EB1A petition should be approved was by proving the relevant nature of his studies and their utmost importance to the United States. We detailed our client’s specialized research which is focused on the public health impact of air pollution and substance abuse, and demonstrated that his work addresses some of the nation’s most pressing issues in understanding how public health issues, including pregnancy, cancer survival, and cardiometabolic health, are affected by air pollution.

Our client’s EB1A petition was approved in merely 2 weeks, thanks to Premium Processing (PP). PP is a paid option offered by the USCIS that guarantees action will be taken on the petition within 15 calendar days. We congratulate our client on this win and thank him for retaining our services for the final step in the green card process (filing an I-485 application).
