Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group ( adheres to the highest of standards when it comes to spearheading I-140 petitions for our clients from all over the world. As part of our comprehensive services, we help our clients make informed decisions before they begin their journey towards permanent residence. As another example of our consistent efforts and proven track record of success, we are pleased to announce that we have secured another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval, this time for a Chinese research assistant in the field of systems engineering (just 8 days after filing).

This success came as a result of our strategic approach to presenting our client’s core strengths and competitive position in the systems engineering discipline. The EB-1A petition package that we put together identified his key contributions dedicated to meeting the future demands of optimizing transport networks. His specialized research is focused on intelligent transportation systems, leading to applications such as better models for flexible transit, optimization for intermittent bus lanes, and so on. We demonstrated his present standing within the global scientific community and described how his work has received worldwide recognition.

In order to illuminate the impact of our client’s work, we detailed his outstanding achievements including his eighteen peer-reviewed scientific articles, four conference papers, and seven patents (at the time of filing) and at least 23 peer-reviews he had conducted for high-impact scientific journals. To show that his profound research has received recognition from the scientific community, we included his citation record which accounts to at least 153 citations from top-researchers around the world.

In order to enhance the chances of success of our client’s EB-1A petition, we incorporated recommendation letters from several industry experts. One of his recommenders added the following statement about him in his letter: “His current endeavors demonstrate his multi-faceted skillset that allows him to occupy an entirely unique position in the field of engineering”.

Our team’s unwavering commitment and hard work has driven this EB-1A petition to an approval just 8 days from the date of filing. Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), the entire application process was expedited. We are thankful to our client for giving us this opportunity to represent his EB-1A petition and we congratulate him as he surpasses the first milestone in the two-part green card process.
