Case Summary:

A research engineer from China approached North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on her behalf. Her vast research experience and notable contributions to the field of computer science manifested themselves in recent advances made to multimedia data mining and computer vision algorithms, most notably in solving real-world issues and in understanding image retrieval and object detection. After evaluating her qualifications, we ascertained that she had a good chance of success with her EB-1A petition.

When we started working on our client’s case, we paid special attention to her impactful research which had led to the formation of new standards in the realm of computer vision, signal processing, image/video processing, and machine learning formulas to benefit software development. In addition to this, our client’s petition packet focused on her impressive record of authorship: her research had led to 27 publications at the time of filing, and her work had been cited at least 150 times by other researchers. Furthermore, our client had conducted at least 23 peer reviews for distinctive, highly acclaimed scientific journals.

In order to uphold our client’s petition, we added recommendation letters signed by veterans in the same field. According to one of them: “[Client] stands particularly able to make further advancements within this field. Her unique ability is predicated on her outstanding educational background and extensive research experience”.

In order to bring forth the timeline, our client decided to file her case with Premium Processing (PP). It was partly due to our scrupulous attention to detail that our client obtained an approval from the USCIS in just 22 days. We are delighted to have helped her achieve EB-1A success as she moves closer to her dream of obtaining a green card.
