Success Stories: EB-1A Petition Approved for Assistant Scientist in Wisconsin in the Field of Public Health (PP Upgrade Requested)


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you SO much for you[r] help during the past year!”

On August 2nd, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for an Assistant Scientist in the Field of Public Health (Approval Notice).

General Field: Public Health

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Scientist

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Wisconsin

Approval Notice Date: August 2nd, 2017

Processing Time: 23 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

A recent client of ours received EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval in 23 days. This assistant scientist from China had initially filed her case using regular processing but chose to upgrade it to Premium Processing (PP) 15 days later. The USCIS guarantees that all PP cases will be adjudicated within 15 calendar days. True to their word, our client obtained petition approval 8 days after the upgrade.

With a strong research background in public health, our client addresses some of the United States’ most pressing issues in understanding how to reduce exposure to secondhand smoke and improve the prevention of cervical and breast cancers. She has earned various accolades for her work, which proved her suitability as an EB-1A candidate. The team at North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) worked diligently to craft her petition. After months of hard work, we presented the following information and other supporting evidence to the USCIS:

  • Her exemplary record of 24 peer-reviewed scientific articles which had amassed 157 citations at the time of filing the petition.
  • Her record of conducting 70 peer reviews for prestigious journals.
  • Several letters of recommendation from other experts in the field who had worked with our client or were familiar with her work. Her studies drew praise from these experts, two of whom wrote the following:

“…she has laid the groundwork for developing new interventions that address the needs of minority populations across the globe.”

“She is an impactful public health professional whose work promotes health equity and cultivates a healthy national citizenry.”

Our client’s strong background in population health sciences and social and behavioral health has led to impactful research results, which convinced the USCIS of the national importance of her work. We also demonstrated that she is at the top of her field and has sustained international/national influence. We congratulate our client for securing EB1A approval, and we wish her the best with the final step in the green card process: filing an I-485 application.
