Case Summary:

At North America Immigration Law Group, we recently received an EB-1B approval for an Economist in the field of Economics. The beneficiary’s outstanding ability, highly skilled background, and impressive record of achievement provided a strong case for her EB-1B petition. Her specialized research has focused on identifying the underlying factors that impact health care costs and decisions. Her research work had resulted in 6 peer-reviewed scientific articles, and 10 presentations at national and international conferences. She had also reviewed more than 10 manuscripts for journals at the time we filed the case. Furthermore, the beneficiary had a total of 115 citations to her work by independent and leading researchers from prestigious institutions and organizations around the world, indicating the major significance of her work. The petitioner in this case was a private company. The significance of the beneficiary’s research is confirmed in the following quote by an independent recommender, “[Client]’s work provides policy makers with the evidence they need to make informed decisions […]—in particular, by assessing the implications of various options for the public cost of care and for patient quality of life.” It was our goal to prove that this beneficiary qualified for classification as an outstanding professor or researcher given the international recognition for her outstanding achievements.  With the proof and documentation that we provided, her case was approved in 24 days.
