Case Summary:

An Associate professor approached North America Immigration Law Group to file her alien of extraordinary ability (EB1-A) petition. Hailing from China, she has completed her Ph.D. in food science and is also currently employed in the same field.

Since, a petition for the first preference category of individuals with extraordinary ability, (“EB1-A”), unlike the employment-based immigration visa under the second preference (“EB-2”) at least requires the following:

  • Evidence of original contributions, usually through publication, of major significance in the foreign national’s field of science, scholastic, artistic, or athletic.
  • No specific job offer/labor certification is required for a foreign person as long as he/she is entering the United States to continue work in the field in which he/she has an extraordinary ability, therefore self-petition is allowed.
  • Performance in a significant role for organizations or establishments that have a distinguished reputation.
  • Receipt of a higher salary or remuneration than is usual in the field.
  • Other comparable evidence if the above types of evidence do not readily apply to the foreign national’s occupation.

Therefore, we included the following essentials from her academic and professional records in her petition packet to make a convincing case in her favor:

  • Her food science research addresses some of our nation’s and the world’s most pressing issues, including reducing the spread of foodborne illnesses and minimizing the environmental impact of food disinfection practices.
  • Her research has resulted in 41 peer-reviewed scientific articles, being cited 1,211 times in at least 27 countries.
  • She has conducted at least 64 reviews to date.

Our client’s work has thus been majorly significant, and her achievements are of the utmost importance due to their direct applicability in global efforts to address the spread of foodborne illnesses and the environmental impact of food disinfection practices.

Four fellow experts in the field further provided insight into the significance of her continuing research in the field, one of whom remarked:

“Client’s profound contributions and extensive training are the foundation of her continued success in the field. Following this review of client’s achievements, I believe that I have made it apparent that she is ideally positioned to further research in the field of food science in the United States.”

Finally, she achieved her EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval in just a month (thanks to premium processing). She has even retained our firm for 1-485 for herself and her spouse. We are glad to have been a part of her successful journey and wish her a flourishing life ahead.
