Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) was approached by a Chinese postdoctoral fellow to help him with an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. After thoroughly reviewing his credentials and asking him questions about his research, we determined that we could help him build a winning case.

Proving to the USCIS that our client is an extraordinary researcher:

With a Ph.D. in Food Biotechnology and ample experience conducting research in the field of bioengineering, our client had amassed an impressive list of accomplishments. For instance, he had published 17 scientific articles and had 4 granted patents in his name. Further, he had judged the work of his peers 50 times for a variety of scientific journals. Not just that, his findings had collected 166 citations at the time of filing.

Obtaining external support to further fortify the case:

As with all our clients, we helped him select suitable recommenders to support his case. We made sure that the shortlisted candidates were experts in the field and familiar with his research. Our client promptly reached out to these recommenders and returned with six signed letters, one of which contained this statement: “Retaining the innovative and pioneering mind of [Client] is essential for continuing to advance the field of bioengineering.”  Another recommender stated: “[Client] is certainly a one-of-a-kind scientist whose continued participation in bioengineering is integral to the success of the field.”

Presenting a strong EB1A case to the USCIS:

We are glad that after months of hard work, we successfully built a strong EB1A case for our client— we received notification of case approval just 6 months after filing. We congratulate our client on this win and wish him the best as he continues to improve the characteristics of industrial-relevant enzymes and understanding the function-evolution relationship at a molecular level.
