Case Summary:

Merely 12 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for a postdoctoral research associate based in Texas, the USCIS approved her case. It took less than 2 weeks for them to take action on her petition because she opted for Premium Processing (PP), a paid option that slices the adjudication timeline from 4-9 months to less than 15 days.

Building a strong EB-1A case:

It is no secret that EB-1A is one of the toughest visa categories to obtain petition approval but thanks to our expertise, we helped our client present her professional achievements in a clear and concise manner. For one, we proved that our client met at least 3 of the 10 EB-1A requirements:

  1. Notable Publication Record: When we filed her EB-1A petition, our client’s work had already resulted in 1 patent and 18 scientific articles. Furthermore, her papers were published in high-ranking scientific journals, proving that her research results are of great importance to the scientific community.
  2. Impressive Citation Count: Thanks to Google Scholar and other similar sites such as Scopus, we determined that our client’s work had collected 337 citations at the time of filing. These citations were made by dependent and independent researchers based around the world, further proving the value of her work to not just her field of materials science, but the realm of science as a whole.
  3. Outstanding Peer Review Record: When we filed her petition, our client had already reviewed close to a dozen of her peers’ papers for several scientific journals. As only the cream of the crop are invited to judge the work of others, our client’s commendable peer review experience speaks volumes of her high standing in the field.

To further strengthen our client’s EB-1A petition, we encouraged her to reach out to other experts in the field and ask them for recommendation letters. Five professors agreed to lend their support, one of whom described our client as “…one of the foremost members of her field, and her record of research accomplishments fully supports this reputation.” Another expert noted that should our client stop her work on the design and application of polymeric nanomaterials, there would be “…negative consequences from a public health perspective.

We are pleased that our meticulous efforts and incomparable work ethic helped our client obtain EB-1A petition approval. We congratulate her on this achievement and wish her the best as she embarks on the final leg of the green card journey: filing an I-485 application.
