Case Summary:

Ensuring the continued development of novel materials for energy harvesting and storage applications, and tackling the most pertinent issue of energy crisis in the United States is essentially what our client’s research entails. Through his work, he has significantly progressed the field of materials science and lent a hand in the design and development of new energy devices with enhanced performance.

Our client, a research assistant and doctoral candidate from China, hired North America Immigration Law Group ( to put together and file an EB1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition. We were thorough in collating all of his academic and professional achievements to build a persuasive case. This included his record of 8 peer-reviewed scientific articles and one granted patent, his noteworthy record of 189 citations, and 38 peer reviews.

“Having already made ground-breaking discoveries regarding solar power generation, [Client]’s continued research holds great importance to the global implementation of this cleaner, cheaper energy generation technology.”

The quote above was taken from a recommendation letter signed by a senior lecturer working at a prestigious university. This letter, and three others contributed by other respected materials scientists, were incorporated into our client’s EB1A petition dossier. They played an important role in convincing the USCIS that out client deserved to obtain EB1A approval. Furthermore, all the information we presented to the USCIS was used to prove that our client’s research is very much needed to accelerate other researchers’ efforts to solve the energy crisis, which is crucial to strengthening and ensuring the US’ energy independence.

We congratulate our client for obtaining EB1A approval— which he received in just 10 days with the help of Premium Processing. We thank him for retaining our services for the final step in the green cared process (filing I-485 applications for him and his spouse), and we join them as they wait for the USCIS to make a decision on their applications.
