“First, thank you for the successful approval. We are more than thrilled to get the news.”

On January 26th, 2022, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for an Associate Professor in the Field of Strategic Management (Approval Notice).

General Field: Strategic Management

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Associate Professor

Country of Origin: China

Approval Notice Date: January 26th, 2022

Processing Time: 9 month, 15 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

To secure an EB1-A category of nonimmigrant visa, the applicant must prove his national and international recognition or awards as well as funding received from top-most organizations or federal institutions. So, when an associate professor hired North America Immigration Law Group to get an EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval, we made sure to go through his CVs, transcripts, certificates, awards, letters of recommendation, Publication and citation history, and peer review count, etc. After reviewing and confirming the veracity of his credentials, we laid out a strong petition packet for the USCIS on our client’s behalf and incorporated the following attributes:

  • Firstly, we noted that several established researchers around the world rely on our client’s research, gathering a total of 681 citations, an impressive achievement in his field of expertise. This is infallible evidence of his capability to consistently produce high-caliber, noteworthy research.
  • The strategic management field also recognized his authority by inviting him to review and evaluate the work of his peers 70 times. His peer review experience is evidence of his elite standing in the field.
  • Besides, he has engaged his peers by authoring and co-authoring 13 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 1 book chapter that have been published in international journals.
  • Moreover, he has received 4 letters of recommendation from other experts supporting his research, one of them stated the below:

“In summary, [client] is a highly qualified scientist in his field who has contributed important findings related to corporate strategy and organization management. Based on the undeniable merits of his discoveries for the entire field of strategic and organization management, I urge you to support the continuation of his research.”

Successfully, we were able to convince the USCIS of our client’s research, which offers valuable insights into managing key firm assets effectively, ensuring that management choices benefit the U.S. economy. Thus, when the approval came through in January of 2022 only 2 days after the premium processing service upgrade, we were overjoyed, and we truly thank our client for his firm belief in our law firm. We wish him all the luck in this continued wonderful journey.
