Success Stories: NSC Approves EB-1A Petition in 3 Days for Chinese Assistant Research Professor in the Field of Chemistry


Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you so much for your help!”

On March 6th, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for an Assistant Research Professor in the Field of Chemistry (Approval Notice).

General Field: Chemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Assistant Research Professor

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Washington

Approval Notice Date: March 6th, 2017

Processing Time: 3 Days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Just 3 days after North America Immigration Law Group ( filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition for a Chinese assistant research professor, Nebraska Service Center (NSC) approved his case. The accelerated timeline is thanks to Premium Processing (PP), a supplementary option offered by the USCIS that guarantees action will be taken on the case within 15 calendar days.

Our main goal was to prove to the USCIS that our client’s ongoing work in the field of chemistry is valuable to the United States. We also demonstrated that as a researcher at the top of his field, our client has sustained international recognition for his development of highly selective fluorescent probes (indicators) that can be used for analyzing and detecting bioactive substances related to a wide variety of diseases. We went about this by presenting our client’s 23 scientific articles and the whopping 716 citations they had amassed at the time of filing. Moreover, we detailed the 39 times our client was invited to judge the work of his peers.

Additional evidence such as our client’s Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry and CV were also included in his EB1A petition dossier. Arguably what carried the most weight were the four recommendation letters signed by other prominent chemists. These letters contained strong statements that supported the approval of our client’s EB1A petition. According to one of these recommenders, a professor at a top-tier American university: “I cannot stress enough the importance of allowing [Client] to continue his work in the United States, a nation known for scientific progress and where [Client’s] work is best able to continue thriving.”

We congratulate our client for securing EB1A petition approval, and we thank him for retaining our services to file I-485 applications for him and his dependent. We join them as they wait for the USCIS to take action on their applications, and in the meantime, we wish our client well as he continues to progress the field of chemistry.
