Case Summary:

A postdoctoral research associate working in the field of horticulture approached North America Immigration Law Group ( to help him with the first step of the green card process: filing an I-140 petition. Based on his credentials, our client qualified for EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability), a visa category upheld by a very high standard of law that had relatively low approval rates. Because we were able to prove that our client is an asset to the United States, the USCIS was persuaded to approve his petition, and they did so in just 13 days. The short adjudication timeline was largely thanks to Premium Processing (PP), an add-on service that allows petitioners to have action taken on their cases within 15 calendar days. As an added bonus, the USCIS did not issue a Request for Evidence (RFE), which attested to the strength of the EB-1A case that we had built for our client.

Our client’s work was described as “…vital to efforts in botany and its related fields, and due to [Client’s] rare expertise in this area, his continued work is entirely necessary to the future success of this research in the United States.” This statement is excerpted from one of the six recommendation letters volunteered by other expert horticulturists. They firmly supported our client’s EB-1A petition by verifying just how important his findings are to other researchers who are progressing the field as a whole. Furthermore, we incorporated details on our client’s various achievements such as the 121 citations gathered from his work, his 6 publications, and the 40 times he judged the work of his peers. We also noted his investigations on elucidating the molecular, genetic, and biochemistry mechanisms by which plants develop and compensate for environmental circumstances, as well as the mechanisms underlying fruit crop quality.

We congratulate our client for obtaining a highly sought-after EB-1A petition approval, and we wish him the best as he adjusts his status for permanent residence by filing an I-485 application. We look forward to congratulating him on his green card success, and we wish him the best as he continues to progress the important field of horticulture.
