Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group ( helped a senior chemist from China to join the ranks of successful EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petitioners who want to further their careers in the United States. As EB-1B is an employer-sponsored visa category, we made sure that our client’s employer, a biotechnological firm based in New York, was fully on-board and that they were willing to provide us with the relevant documents needed to build and file the petition.

Once everything was in order, our legal team and support staff worked diligently to prepare a strong EB-1B case for our client. Part of our services included helping him narrow down a list of recommenders. We made sure that the shortlisted recommenders were experts in the field of polymer chemistry and that they were familiar with our client’s research work. To our delight, our client returned with 5 signed letters, one of which contained this statement: “Given the United States’ status as a global hub of high-level manufacturing, particularly of pharmaceutical and medical products, [Client]’s discoveries are valuable to the United States economy at multiple levels. The deployment of polymeric biomaterials in an array of biomedical applications means that [Client]s discovery also holds extraordinary value to medicine and public health in the United States”.

Alongside these recommendation letters were details on our client’s work, which mainly focuses on the design and development of new types of polymeric biomaterials for a variety of biomedical applications such as drug delivery, tissue engineering and medical diagnostics in the field of medical and pharmaceutical research.

Additionally, our client’s EB-1B petition observed his record of authorship (11 peer-reviewed journal articles) and the citation metrics (352 citations at the time of filing) which underscores his value as a leader in his discipline. When we filed his petition, his achievements also included the 18 times he had assessed the work of his peers. The evidence clearly and objectively demonstrates the international influence of our client’s work, as well as the widespread actual implementation of his findings.

Although our client had a strong case, the USCIS issued an RFE to which we responded promptly and successfully dealt with all the hesitations regarding our client’s qualifications and credentials. Our years of experience in handling employment-based immigration petitions have enabled us to deliver the most quality and professional service to our clients. We are happy to list his case among our 15,000 success stories, and we wish him the very best as he continues to advance the field of polymer chemistry in the US.
