Case Summary:

When a China-born cyber security expert contacted North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to help him file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition, we first assessed his credentials to gauge his prospects of obtaining petition approval. A Ph.D. in Computer Engineering obtained from a well-known American university lent a hand in setting our client apart from other EB-1A candidates. Moreover, our client’s research in understanding software vulnerability is an area which definitely benefits the United States, especially since it aids in the development of applications that bolster national and global security.

Amongst other things, our client’s EB1A petition dossier contained information pertaining to his exemplary research record. At the time of filing, he had already collected 151 citations to his work and had 4 scientific articles and a book chapter under his authorship. Additionally, he had conducted at least 50 peer reviews, which we used as proof that he is a cyber security expert whose opinions are highly respected by other researchers in the field.

To top it all off, our client had gathered 4 letters of recommendation contributed by other renowned experts in the field. One such letter stated: “[Client’s] achievements make him an extraordinary asset in cyber security research. In a world where cyber-attacks against critical infrastructure are becoming real threats to national security, it is essential that [Client] be permitted to continue his studies in the United States.” These words of support undoubtedly improved our client’s chances of gaining EB-1A petition approval.

In order to expedite the adjudication process, our client requested our firm to file his EB-1A petition with Premium Processing (PP). It should be mentioned that this decision facilitated a quick response from the immigration authorities and our client’s case was approved within 11 days (the norm is between 4-9 months). We congratulate our client on his success and wish him the very best in his future endeavors.
