Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group ( was hired by a postdoctoral fellow from China to help him with his EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. Our client’s work in the field of electrical engineering is primarily focused on the application of metamaterials in nano- and micro-structured material optics. We established that his work is of inherent value to other researchers’ understanding of how metamaterials can be utilized to develop novel technologies for national defense and communication applications in the United States.

Strong Credentials:

Our client is a suitable candidate for EB-1A as he possesses very strong professional credentials. For instance, his work has gathered over 630 citations and he has conducted 60 peer reviews for multiple scientific journals. Our client’s impressive citation count and peer review experience serve as proof that his insights are important to other scientists in the field. Furthermore, our client had already published 19 scientific articles at the time of filing.

Third-party Reviews:

Despite our client’s strong credentials, we needed third-party opinions to fortify our case. We encouraged our client to reach out to other top minds in his field and request for recommendation letters. Six experts obliged, one of whom had this to say about our client’s work: “Not allowing [Client] to continue his research in this important field would have negative impacts on information security in the United States and the future of the metamaterial science field.” Another expert wrote this: “[Client’s] research opens many doors for further studies into creating materials capable of manipulating light propagation. Subsequently, this work harbors great implications for communications and security.”

Agreeable Results:

We are pleased that the USCIS agreed with our presentation on the importance of our client’s work to the United States. This EB-1A approval notice serves as proof that our law firm is fully committed to helping every client get one step closer to green card success. We congratulate our client on this milestone and wish him well with his I-485 application (final step in the green card process).
