Success Stories: EB-1A Petition Approved for Postdoctoral Fellow from China in the Field of Electrical Engineering


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you for your help with this application […] I will also recommend you to my friends who are willing to apply for green cards.”

On February 8th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Electrical Engineering (Approval Notice).

General Field: Electrical Engineering

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Louisiana

Approval Notice Date: February 8th, 2016

Processing Time: 10 days (Premium Processing requested)

Case Summary:


“I am confident [Client’s] knowledge and expertise contributes substantially to the scientific research and technological development in the United States…I believe that [Client] is a well-accomplished scientist with an impressive scientific record […] His accomplishments are truly outstanding and have earned him an international reputation in the scientific community and I am confident that his expertise and knowledge would benefit substantially the advancement of scientific research in the US.”

This quote is taken from a recommendation letter volunteered by a well-known professor in the field of electrical engineering. This letter, and several others that our client obtained, was included in the well-balanced EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition packet that we submitted to the USCIS on our client’s behalf. This packet also contained information on our client’s 9 published journal articles, the 171 citations to his work, and the 110 instances he assessed the work of other electrical engineers. Our client, who obtained his Ph.D. in Physical Electronics from an institution in his birth country of China, is conducting research on photonic/plasmonic nanostructures and advances solar energy technologies.

In large part because our client chose to file his case under Premium Processing, the USCIS granted their approval just 11 days later. Even so, we have no doubt that our thorough demonstration of the significance of our client’s work to the United States played a role in the case approval. We would like to congratulate our client on this milestone and we wish him well with his I-485 application (final step in the green card process).
