Case Summary:

Earlier this year, a well-known senior engineer from China approached North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for him. With a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and numerous professional accolades under his belt, our client was a suitable candidate for this tough visa category. Amongst other things, we included the following information in our client’s EB-1A petition dossier:

  1. Recommendation Letters: An important element of our client’s case involved the six recommendation letters that he had gathered from his peers. These letters contained statements that firmly supported the approval of his EB-1A petition. For instance, this is what one of our client’s recommenders had to say about his work: “His research is a major step forward in the formation of optical and electronic devices on many materials that can be produced on a wider industrial scale, demonstrating the major national and international impact of his developments in this domain.”
  2. Research Information: Our client sent us a comprehensive research summary that detailed his research projects. After carefully reviewing it, we determined that his work is focused on the advancement of nanotechnology. We concluded that our client’s investigations are important to the US as they are applied in the development of ultrahigh-sensitivity temperature, magnetic, and electric field sensing technologies for use in medical, biological, and physical research.
  3. Publication and Citation Count: At the time of filing, our client’s publication record was composed of 18 well-received scientific articles and 2 patents. Additionally, his citation count stood at 302 citations.
  4. Peer Review Record: When we filed the case, our client had conducted two dozen peer reviews for an array of scientific journals. As only the cream of the crop are invited to judge the work of their peers, our client’s impressive peer review record speaks volumes about his leadership role in the field of electrical engineering.

Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), our client only waited 9 days for the USCIS to take action on his EB-1A petition. Furthermore, he chose to retain our I-485 services, and we filed applications for him and his spouse not too long after his EB-1A petition was approved. We join them as they eagerly await a favorable response from the USCIS. In the meantime, we wish our client well as he continues to progress the field of electrical engineering.
