Success Stories: EB-1A Petition Approved for Postdoctoral Associate from China in the Field of Chemical Engineering (No RFE, PP Upgrade)


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much for helping me on EB1A and NIW. I had a great experience with your service. I have recommended you to any of my friends who would apply for green card and will highly do so in the future.”

On October 3rd, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Associate in the Field of Chemical Engineering (Approval Notice).


General Field: Chemical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Associate

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: October 3rd, 2016

Processing Time: 45 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Just 45 days after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of postdoctoral associate from China, the USCIS approved her case. It would have taken far longer had our client not elected to upgrade her case to Premium Processing (PP) a month after filing. PP is a paid option offered by the USCIS and it allows petitioners to have action taken on their cases within 15 days. True to their word, the USCIS only spent 13 days adjudicating our client’s EB-1A petition before granting their approval.

What did her EB-1A petition packet contain?

Part of our services included obtaining a wealth of information on our client’s various achievements in the field of chemical engineering. We then pieced all the information together to build a strong case for her. Amongst other things, we highlighted the 67 times her work was cited, the 10 published articles to her name, and the 23 times she assessed the work of her peers. Furthermore, we noted her work on data-driven models and analytic techniques for production process monitoring and controlling in particulate and crystallization systems, in addition to investigations of crystal structure-physical property correlation. We then demonstrated to the USCIS that our client’s findings are important to the US as they are applied in process engineering enhancements that allow American manufacturers to access better data analysis regarding the performance of systems in real-time, and to respond to problems or process disturbances more quickly and effectively, leading to a more efficient and cost-effective production process and a higher quality final product.

Another important element of her EB-1A petition packet involved the six recommendation letters contributed by other experts in the field. These letters contained strong statements that supported the approval of our client’s EB-1A petition. As an example, this is what one of our client’s recommenders had to say about her: “… [Client’s] presence in the U.S. is highly important to the field, and that a less qualified scientist could simply not fill the gap left by her absence if she were forced to discontinue her research there.”

We congratulate our client for obtaining a highly sought after EB-1A petition approval. We thank her for working with our law firm and wish her the best as she continues to progress the field of chemical engineering.
