On March 7th, 2016, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Financial Software Engineer in the Field of Wireless Communication (Approval Notice).


General Field: Wireless Communication

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Financial Software Engineer

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Nebraska Service Center (NSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: New Jersey

Approval Notice Date: March 7th, 2016

Processing Time: 11 Days (Premium Processing Requested)


Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group ( had the pleasure of working with a financial software engineer from China working in the field of wireless communication. After carefully evaluating his qualifications, we determined that we would file I-140 petitions under both EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) and EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver) visa categories to increase our client’s chances of getting a petition approval. To our delight, our client’s EB-1A petition was approved, allowing him to move on to the final step of the green card process (the I-485 application) without needing to wait for his priority date to become current.

Premium Processing:

As our client elected to file his EB-1A petition under Premium Processing (PP), we received an approval notice from Nebraska Service Center just 11 days after we filed the case on his behalf. PP allows for rapid adjudication (the USCIS must take action on a petition within 15 days as opposed to 4-9 months for regularly filed cases). Although the USCIS charged our client $1,225 more, filing his petition under PP significantly shortened the wait time for a decision.

Strong Qualifications:

As part of our services, we carefully reviewed and accounted for our client’s various research projects on improving the efficiency of spectrum sharing and the performance of transmission strategies in relay, interference and sensor networks. We then used what we learned to explain to the USCIS that our client’s work is of extreme value to the United States, particularly when it comes to the country’s wireless communications transmissions and addressing the growing complexity of interference networks and servers. We backed up our claim by incorporating proof of our client’s successful research endeavors: the 137 citations to his work, his 6 published scientific articles, and 7 conference papers. Our legal team also established the value of our client’s findings to other researchers in his field of wireless communication by detailing the 29 times he assessed the work of his peers for scientific journals.

External Support:

We wanted to be sure that the USCIS would not be able to poke any holes through our meticulously prepared EB-1A petition so we urged our client to reach out to other specialists in his field for recommendation letters. The four letters that our client managed to obtain furnished the USCIS with additional evidence that our client is an asset to the nation. Here are a couple of quotes that we excerpted from two letters:

  • “As the country’s reliance on cellular technology grows, so does the need for [Client’s] superior research. As he has repeatedly demonstrated, he is a skilled researcher equipped to handle the most complex technological challenges. Based on this, his continued research within the United States is in the best interest of the country.”  
  • “[Client’s] several practical contributions demonstrate that he is among the most advanced researchers in his field. Given the applications he has already delivered to the field, [Client’s] research will continue to improve wireless networks and eliminate the present threat of security breach.”

Story of Success:

We are pleased that we can chalk this EB-1A approval up as yet another success story for our firm. We would like to congratulate our client for overcoming this significant hurdle, thereby getting one step closer to his green card, and we wish him the best as he continues to advance his field of wireless communication.
