Case Summary:

In just 8 days, our client was successful in receiving the EB-1B (Outstanding Professors and Researchers) petition approval. Our proficient legal team at North America Immigration Law Group ensures a comprehensive background evaluation of every client who hires us for helping them with their immigration petition to USCIS. Thus, in this case, also before commencing with our client’s case, we investigated her research on occupational stress and safety which seemed to address some of our nation’s most critical issues in understanding methods for improving safety leadership and safety motivation, occupational stress, and recovery among firefighters, and stress prevention climate measures. We were very impressed with her strong background in the industrial and organizational psychology field and the progress she had made in the academic field of research, which secured her reputation as an outstanding professor in the international community of occupational health psychology. Moreover, leading researchers from top universities and research groups from the United States and abroad have submitted letters confirming our client as an outstanding professor in her specialized field.

“If American companies want to help their employees live healthier lives, incorporating the results of her occupational stress and safety studies into their policies and organizational planning is key to improving mental and emotional health outcomes for their employees. In this regard, [client’s] research is undoubted of considerable importance to the United States.”

“The results of her research illustrate the need for companies and management to focus on building distinct climates (i.e., safety, health, and stress prevention) to improve the safety, health, and well-being of their workers.”

These two above-mentioned excerpts have been taken out from 2 of the 4 recommendation letters submitted to the USCIS obtained by her fellow experts from national and international universities, corroborating that her findings have been widely circulated the world in occupational health psychology research circles.

Together we worked very hard with our client to make sure that she developed and gave us all the required documentation we needed to meet the USCIS’s defined guidelines to obtain the EB1B approval. Therefore, with our client’s cordial support and our team’s efficiency, we demonstrated her outstanding educational and professional experience by incorporating the following details in her EB1B petition packet:

  • After reviewing her credentials, we found that our client holds a Ph.D. in psychology, and her research has resulted in 13 peer-reviewed journal articles (8 of them first-authored) and 2 book chapters published in some of the most highly regarded and influential journals in the field. Her publications have accumulated a total of 129 citations from international researchers, indicating the influence that her work has had on her contemporaries in the field as it shows that other scientists are regularly basing their work on her findings.
  • As further evidence of her esteemed status in the field, she has been invited to peer review on at least 30 occasions, proving her respected status as an occupational health psychology researcher. Besides, not only does she perform peer review for multiple journals but also sits on the editorial board of the occupational health science field.

After 8 days of our diligence, we were victorious in winning the EB1B approval. We are super glad that our client could achieve her approval and can continue her work here in the United States without any further obstacles. We thus wish her all the best in all her future endeavors.
