Chen Immigration Law Associates recently received an EB1A approval for a photographer from Germany and working in the Dominican Republic. This client seeks to enter the United States to continue her work in photography. It was our goal to prove that this client qualifies for classification as an alien of extraordinary ability given that she seeks to enter the United States to continue work in the area of extraordinary ability and that her entry into the United States will substantially and prospectively benefit the United States. Our client’s work has resulted in 8 books and 6 documentaries. She has also produced countless pieces, which have been recognized for their importance by museums, experts in the field, and the media. Her contributions to the field are also recognized by other experts, notably in a statement by an independent recommender who stated, “Although I do not know [the Petitioner] personally, I am familiar with several of her projects and their importance on an international scale.” We at Chen Immigration Law Associates collected recommendation letters from leading experts in the field that argue the necessity of continuation of our client’s work. Eight of the letters we submitted were from leading independent experts who attest to the major significance and influence of her work in the field of photography. This client’s case was approved in just one month.
