Case Summary:

Not long ago, we were informed that our client, a Chinese research fellow who specializes in optical engineering, received his I-140 approval notice. North America Immigration Law Group helped him file his EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) case under Premium Processing, which resulted in only 34 days of adjudication. Our client, who is employed by one of the most distinguished universities in the United States, is now much closer to obtaining his green card.

We meticulously compiled a petition dossier that was composed of data on his many research projects, notable citation record, more than half a dozen publications, peer review participation, and several recommendation letters written by experts in his field. One of these letters stated, “From my perspective, [Client] is one of the most impactful mechanical engineering research scientists today. He has and will continue to make important contributions to optical engineering and adaptive optics imaging.”

In short, we proved that our client, whose investigations advance the entire field of adaptive optics imaging, is an asset to the United States. His research efforts are applied in various sectors and benefit the country both scientifically and financially. The USCIS agreed with our presentation and approved our client’s I-140. This EB-1B approval is yet another example of North America Immigration Law Group’s extensive list of green card success stories.
