Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. and M.S. in horticulture and many years of experience administering discerning research, our client undoubtedly possessed the ability to continue further in the field of horticulture. She hired North America Immigration Law Group to build an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on her behalf. We evaluated her academic background thoroughly and discovered her proposed research work, and affirmed that we could lead her to EB1A approval by highlighting the below-mentioned information in her EB1A case:

  • We detailed the 279 times her work was cited by other experts, suggesting the importance of her findings in the field of horticulture. Also, she has not only achieved the results of her research in the field, but her publications have been cited by researchers in at least 29 countries, representing that these publications are well-recognized all around the world.
  • Moreover, we highlighted the 6 peer-reviewed scientific articles, all of which were published in some of the most judicious and impacting journals in her field. Furthermore, we observed the impressive 15 times our client assessed the work of her peers for several highly acclaimed journals.
  • Establishing one of the requisite elements of our client’s EB1A petition was her research on improving the efficiency of plant breeding. Also, her research addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding how to utilize novel methods and software to enhance plant breeding in a variety of crops.
  • Reinforcing our client’s petition further, we incorporated five recommendation letters provided by other well-recognized researchers in the field, one of whom stated that:

“[Client] is a researcher who I believe is making tremendously important advances towards allowing the expedited development of cultivars with characteristics that make them more productive and marketable. As such, I believe that her contributions to the U.S. are quite valuable.”

Finally, our client obtained her EB1A petition approval, thanks to our team’s consistent follow-up, and now she is one major step closer to her green card success. We thank her for choosing us to represent her case. We also congratulate her on her future endeavors.
