“Thanks so much once again. And, it was great working with you.”

On November 18th, 2021, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow II in the Field of Atmospheric Science (Approval Notice).

General Field: Atmospheric Science

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow II

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Colorado

Approval Notice Date: November 18th, 2021

Processing Time: 27 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in physics, our EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) client from China was a postdoctoral fellow (now a research scientist with permanent position) working on the impact of geomagnetic activity and lower atmospheric forcing on thermosphere and ionosphere in the field of space physics. He is especially well-known for hiscontribution in the ionosphere eqautorial ionization anomaly and the thermosphere composition response to geomagnetic disturbance. It was for this reason that when he came to us in October 2021, our team could easily put together the required documents and information for his EB1-A petition to USCIS. The adjudicating authorities are clear on the requirements for the category, which include an indication of the extraordinary ability the petitioner claims to have and the positive impact of their ability on the United States. This was proved by including the following documents in the petition packet:

  • Updated CVs
  • Transcripts of academic degrees
  • Certificates from academic institutions and professional career
  • Letters of Recommendation from experts in the area
  • Proof of his extraordinary ability and dedication to continue working in his area of expertise
  • Evidence of his primary funding sources

Along with these documents other relevant information such as:

  • Details of publication history- He had already published 20 peer-reviewed articles in scientific journals of repute.
  • Details of his citation count: His works have been cited 269 times in 20 countries around the world in all.
  • Details of peer review experience: He has conducted a total of 60 peer reviews for other authors in his area of expertise.
  • Details of the news report carried by NASA on his publications

Thus one of the experts said the following about his work:

“Overall, the advancements that [the client] has driven within the space physics field are nothing short of extraordinary. Because of this, I suggest with no doubt in my mind that he remains in the United States and continue to advance the American space physics research community.”

We thus congratulate him on his case approval and thank him for his continued trust in us, which could help him get an NIW (National Interest Waiver) approval as well.
