Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group ( helped a postdoctoral researcher from China attain an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval. As our client elected to file his case under Premium Processing, his case was subject to rapid adjudication, meaning the USCIS took action on his petition within 15 days (9 days to be exact) instead of the usual 4-9 months. We are glad that he has overcome the first portion of the green part process and can freely file an I-485 application.

Our client’s doctorate in traditional Chinese pharmacology, has armed him with the skills needed to carry out original research in the field of natural products chemistry. His extensive experience researching natural products with the ability to treat various health conditions has resulted in his publication of 30 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 3 patents. Moreover, his work has been cited over 300 times by various researchers around the world. Five of these very same researchers agreed to advocate for the approval of our client’s EB-1A petition by means of recommendation letters. Their letters contained pivotal information on our client’s research that confirmed its value to global public health. For instance, one of our client’s recommenders stated: “Plant-based medicines have been a basis for medical treatments through much of human history, and physicians still prescribe herbal remedies such as aspirin to treat patients today. […] Plant-based medicines and herbal remedies are much cheaper to produce than modern medicines, making them a useful alternative for the millions of patients who cannot afford adequate healthcare. Therefore, much of the world depends on further developments in plant-based biomedicine. [Client] has undoubtedly met this need through his work, and his past successes confirm that he will continue to benefit his field in the many years ahead.”

Our client’s comprehensive EB-1A petition also contained information pertaining to the 50 times he assessed the work of his peers. His impressive peer review record demonstrated to the USCIS that his opinions are highly regarded by other experts working in the field.

We join our client as he celebrates the approval of his EB-1A petition, and we wish him well as he continues to make advances in the field of natural products chemistry.
