Case Summary:

With a Ph.D. in sedimentology and an M.S. in structural geology, a professor from China hired us to prepare an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. We evaluated his credentials before affirming to take his case. We discerned his sound academics and extensively documented record of authorship in the field of geology, which proved him to be a suitable candidate for the EB-1A visa category. We agreed to work on his case and to lead him to achieve the EB1A approval. Thus, we incorporated the following bits in our petition packet:

  • We recorded the 101 peer-reviewed scientific articles published by him in some of the most selective, high-impact journals in his field. Additionally, we noted our client’s peer-review participation as he assessed the work of others 14 times for highly honored journals.
  • We also detailed his research focusing on studying chemical elements in rocks, minerals, and the environment using high precision element analysis in order to remediate heavy metal pollution and benefit the shale oil and gas industry. His structural geology and geochemistry research address some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including pollution and the safety and prosperity of the oil and gas industry.
  • Moreover, we observed his research has been cited extensively by his peers in the research community. His publications have been cited 3,287 times in at least 52 countries, expressing the importance and significance of his contributions.
  • Finally, we included four recommendation letters obtained by our client to strengthen his case further. He accumulated all the letters from independent advisors in the field and one of them opinionated:

“[Client’s] research has long focused on coal’s chemical properties and behavior, which offers a clearer picture of the generation and emission of harmful gases… He is a talented scientist and engineer whose work is aligned with the economic and strategic interests of the United States.”

Given all the evidence, USCIS adjudicated our client’s case in just 9 days and our client received his EB1A approval. Many thanks to premium processing and our team’s efforts. Also, we thank our client for choosing us to represent his case and permitting us to be a part of this success story.
