Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group ( helped a senior photonics engineer from China join the ranks of successful EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petitioners who want to further their careers in the United States. Once we thoroughly examined his credentials, we were assured that he had the right set of qualifications to be considered for an EB-1B petition. As EB-1B is an employer-sponsored visa category, we made sure that our client’s employer was fully on-board and that they were willing to provide us with the relevant documents needed to build and file the case.

Once everything was in order, our professional team analyzed our client’s case and prepared the best evidence to attest to his credibility and outstanding achievements in the discipline. We proved to the USCIS how our client’s research has resulted in recent advances in silicon photonics which help drive the industry of telecommunication networks and computer systems in the US.

Additionally, our client’s EB-1B petition observed his record of authorship (6 peer-reviewed journal articles, one editor invited news/views article, and one patent) and citation metrics (75 citations at the time of filing) which demonstrated his leadership role in the field. When we filed his petition, his achievements also included the 13 times he had assessed the work of his peers.

To further support this petition, we helped our client shortlist a group of influential experts who could vouch for his EB-1B candidacy. Our client promptly contacted them and as a result, we were provided with six strong recommendation letters. According to one of them: “For his dedicated work in the discipline, [Client] is uniquely poised to continue contributing to intellectual conversations currently ongoing concerning the urgent implementation of silicon photonics into telecommunications and data center industries”.

Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), our client’s EB-1B petition was processed just a month after filing. Our years of experience in handling employment-based immigration petitions have enabled us to deliver the best service to our clients. We congratulate our client on his EB-1B petition success and thank him for working with us again to file his I-485 application.
