Case Summary:


A postdoctoral scientist from China recently engaged the services of North America Immigration Law Group to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on her behalf. Our client’s research centers on the ecological effects of climate change, oil and gas development, and changing land use factors in Arctic regions. She also conducts studies on the spatial and population characteristics contributing to the existence of urban slums in developing nations. As the United States is one of the world’s leading contributors of disaster relief funding, our legal team argued that our client’s research is essential to these nations’ resource plans, which in turn may affect the United States economy.

An expert environmental scientist who contributed a recommendation letter to support our client’s EB-1A petition had this to say about her work: “Given the worldwide benefits stemming directly from her research undertakings, it is easy to see why the need to aid policy makers in these areas is absolutely essential. [Client] is one of the few environmentalists who has consistently made concrete progress in this regard, and I have unwavering confidence in her prolonged work here in the States.” This letter, along with five others we helped our client obtain from other experts, were included in our comprehensive EB-1A petition packet. The petition also contained information on our client’s 179 independent citations, 14 publications, and 23 instances of peer review contributions.

Our client’s choice to file her I-140 under Premium Processing allowed her case to receive rapid adjudication. In this case, the USCIS only took six days to make a decision. We congratulate her on receiving her EB-1A approval notice.
