On September 16th, 2019, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Data Scientist in the field of Mechanical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Mechanical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Data Scientist

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Texas

Processing Time: 8 months, 9 days

Case Summary:

A Chinese data scientist hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. Once we thoroughly examined our client’s credentials, we were assured that he had the right set of qualifications to be considered for an EB-1A petition. His specialized research has focused on the synthesis and mechanical testing of novel materials, and on the development of new technologies for mapping proppant distribution in hydraulic fractures in oil and gas reservoirs. With numerous achievements under his name, our client, an expert in mechanical engineering whose work spans the fields of geophysics, petrophysics and engineering, is indeed an influential researcher who is highly respected by his peers.

Compiling Documentary Evidence:

The many years that our client has spent progressing the field of mechanical engineering have led to various achievements. As part of our services, we narrowed them down and determined what to include in his petition packet. Amongst other things, we detailed his 10 peer-reviewed scientific articles. We noted that he has contributed to the field in different capacities. For example, he has conducted at least 11 peer reviews. We also listed the 500 times his work has been cited in other peer-reviewed journal articles. Additional information such as our client’s doctoral degree, CV, and employment letter were also included in the petition packet.

Presenting a Strong Case:

Further corroboration of the significance of his research was provided through letters of recommendation volunteered by distinguished mechanical engineers. They lauded our client’s “methods remarkably adaptable to other forms of materials science research”. One of these recommenders stated that: “Restricting a scientist such as [Client] who has proven to be accomplished both in terms of novel technique development and public reception, gravely inhibits the progress in several crucial areas of unconventional oil research and the success of the United States as a whole.”

With the EB1A I-140 approval in hand, our client is now one step closer to his green card. We join him as he celebrates his EB-1A win and we wish him the very best as he adjusts his status for permanent residence with the help of our free DIY I-485 Packet.
