Case Summary:

Just 8 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a mechanical design engineer from China, Texas Service Center approved his case. Considering that EB1A is upheld by a very high standard of law, our client undeniably possessed extraordinary ability in his chosen field of mechanical engineering. These are several key points we focused on when preparing his petition:

  • We noted the 254 citations gathered from his 13 published scientific articles.
  • The two dozen times he conducted peer reviews for multiple journals were also detailed.
  • We reviewed his research on novel 2D nanomaterials and determined that it addresses some of our nation’s most pressing issues in understanding how to optimize the properties and performance of nanomaterials.
  • Six recommendation letters were volunteered by other well-known professionals in the field. These letters advocated for the approval of our client’s EB1A petition and highlighted the significance of his research to the United States. According to one of these recommenders: “Simply put, the research community would suffer without [Client’s] sustained research efforts.” Another recommender stated that “…halting his progress would be detrimental to the advancement of the field of mechanical engineering.”

We spent months building a strong EB1A case for our client, and we are pleased that our diligent efforts paid off. We congratulate him for surpassing this milestone in the green card process, and we wish him the best as he heads towards the green card finish line.
