Case Summary:

A research fellow immersed in the field of cancer nanotechnology approached North America Immigration Law Group ( for help with his I-140 petition. He wanted to know if he qualified to file his petition under EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) and after evaluating his credentials, we confirmed that he did. Here are some of the steps that we took to ensure that our client’s EB-1A petition was ironclad:

  1. We detailed his research efforts on the development and testing of novel tumor-targeted nanomedicine platforms for chemo- and radiation therapy. Based on what we gathered, we were able to conclude that our client’s work progresses the United States’ development of more effective technologies for the treatment and diagnosis of cancer.
  2. We determined that our client had conducted peer reviews for over 20 scientific journals. Only accomplished researchers are invited to judge the work of their peers—our client’s outstanding peer review record highlights the value of his insights to the scientific community.
  3. We also listed the one book chapter and 14 published scientific articles to his name, and the 297 citations gathered from his work.
  4. The incorporation of five recommendation letters into our client’s EB-1A petition packet served as further evidence that his work is of great value to other researchers in the field. These letters were contributed by our client’s peers, one of whom wrote, “… [Client’s] research has exhibited merit that distinguishes him as one of the leading researchers in cancer nanomedicine and molecular imaging around the world, and his work has had significant benefits for the country, especially in finding novel ways to treat cancer and improve existing cancer therapies.”

Premium Processing:

Thanks to Premium Processing (PP), our client received notification of case approval just 8 days after his EB-1A petition was filed. PP is an add-on option offered by the USCIS to petitioners filing under certain EB-1, EB-2 and EB-3 visa categories. By paying the USCIS $1,225 more, these petitioners get to enjoy rapid adjudication; action will be taken on their case within 15 days instead of 4-9 months. We congratulate our client for obtaining an EB-1A petition approval. We are currently helping him and his spouse prepare their I-485 applications, and we look forward to helping them obtain green cards.
