Case Summary:

Merely 8 days after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a postdoctoral research associate from China, the USCIS approved his case. With multiple years of experience progressing the field of physics, we were able to gather important information pertaining to his extraordinary ability in the field. These are some of the key points we focused on:

  • We listed the 40 times our client assessed the work of his peers for an array of high profile scientific journals. As only respected experts in their field are invited to perform review work, our client’s frequent review activity demonstrated his high standing in the field.
  • We noted the 260 times our client’s 17 publications had been cited. Using this data, we demonstrated to the USCIS that other researchers from around the world used our client’s findings to progress their research, indicating the major significance of his work.
  • Further, we discussed our client’s projects on the control of both charge and spin properties of electrons in nano-size devices as well as the resultant applications in information storage and processing.
  • In order to present an airtight case, we needed the support of other expert physicists so we asked our client to reach out to a handful of his peers for recommendation letters. Five experts agreed to lend their support, one of whom stated: “I simply do not believe that the research community of the US could have advanced as far as it has in our understanding of semiconductors without [Client’s] diligent work, and we will continue to rely upon his insight and skills going forward. Without his continued research, advancements in semiconductor research will not keep pace with the growing demands for new technology. Thus, [Client] must be permitted to continue his studies.”

As we were able to convince the USCIS that our client’s research is aiding US industries to develop faster and more robust devices for storing very large amounts of data, our client was granted petition approval. We congratulate him for coming this far in the green card process and we wish him luck as he undertakes the final step: filing an I-485 application.
