Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group ( recently had the opportunity to help a prominent senior biomedical engineer from China attain an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval. Her Ph.D. in Solid Mechanics and impressive professional qualifications made her a suitable candidate for this visa category. Here are some of the key points that we focused on in preparing her EB-1A petition packet:

  1. Compelling Credentials: When we filed her case, our client had 15 scientific articles and 2 book chapters to her name which had collectively gathered 135 citations. Furthermore, the 25 times she served as a peer reviewer for various well-known scientific periodicals solidified our argument that she is a leader in the field of biomedical engineering.
  2. Research Summary: As part of our comprehensive services, we carefully examined our client’s research summary and determined that her projects on applying biomedical imaging technologies to understand the solid mechanics of vascular tissues are important to the United States.
  3. Testimonials: To bolster our client’s EB-1A petition, we encouraged her to contact a handful of other experts in the field for recommendation letters. Five experts agreed to lend their support and they signed strong testimonials that not only briefly discussed our client’s important research but also advocated for the approval of her EB-1A petition. Here are several quotes:

“[Client’s] work plays a critical part in addressing the persistent risk of heart disease in the United States. One in four deaths in America is caused by some forms of heart disease, and early detection is the best way to prevent catastrophic heart failure. Incorrect models of vessel wall behavior result in improper diagnosis and ineffective treatments. [Client’s] modeling system corrects these errors, creating a much better means of accurate diagnosis…”

“Given the serious nature of heart disease in the United States and its continued effect on the health and economy of millions of lives, I consider [Client] as one of the elite few investigators to formulate solutions. Her presence is invaluable to the advancement of better coronary understanding, and developing revolutionary treatment methods that save thousands of lives.”

“Based on the quality of her contributions, and her elite standing as a biomechanical researcher, I recommend [Client] with enthusiasm and without hesitation. [Client] is at the forefront of the next generation of coronary treatment options, and the field will continue to benefit and be significantly advanced with her presence in the United States.”

Overall, our client only waited one week for the USCIS to take action on her case. Such rapid adjudication is thanks to Premium Processing (PP), a paid option offered by the USCIS. Petitioners whose cases are filed under PP will have action taken on their cases within 15 days instead of the usual 4-9 months. We congratulate our client for obtaining an EB-1A petition approval, and we wish her well as she continues to advance the field of biomedical engineering.
