Case Summary:

A gifted research technician from China approached North America Immigration Law Group ( to file an EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition on her behalf. As EB-1B is an employer-sponsored visa category, she had to garner the full support of her employer before hiring us. Once she got the green light, we gathered the relevant paperwork from her employer—a prestigious university—and proceeded to build a strong case for our client.

With an M.S. in Biology and an M.S. in Medical Genetics, our client is undoubtedly armed with the theoretical know-how to conduct impactful research in the field of neuroscience. Based on her research efforts on the molecular and neurobiological basis of neurological diseases, it is clear that her investigations progress the development of novel treatments for neurodegenerative and neurological disorders. We included elements of her research in her EB-1B petition packet and also documented their impressive results: the 39 times her work was cited, the 3 published articles to her name, and the 16 times she was invited to conduct peer reviews for scientific journals.

Furthermore, we incorporated recommendation letters into our client’s EB-1B petition dossier. These letters were contributed by other influential researchers in the field of neuroscience, one of whom stated that “… [Client] has brought a fresh perspective to her research that has allowed her to succeed in this highly competitive field. As this perspective sets [Client] apart from her peers, it would nearly impossible to find another to take her place.”

Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), our client only waited 8 days for the USCIS to take action on her case. We are glad that our meticulous presentation of our client’s solid credentials lent a hand in case approval. Our client is now one giant step closer to green card success, and we wish her the best as she adjusts her status for permanent residence by filing an I-485 application.
