Success Stories: EB1A Approval for an Executive and Manager in the field of Business Development and Entrepreneurial Leadership in 2 months

Client’s Testimonial:

I can personally recommend Chen Immigration for any business person applying for either a self petition EB1, or EB2 NIW. Chen Immigration’s visa expertise and quality of service is exemplary, and they maintained a very professional approach from the start of the I140 visa process through to the successful approval of the I140 application.

On August 14th, 2013 we received another EB1-A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) Approval for an Executive and Manager in the field of Business Development and Entrepreneurial Leadership (Approval Notice)

General Field: Business Development and Entrepreneurial Leadership
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Executive and Manager
National Origin:  Mozambique
Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)
Residence at the Time of Filing:  South Africa
Approval Notice Date: August 14, 2013
Processing Time:  2 months

Case Summary:

The average processing time for I-140 cases is 4-6 months. But on many occasions, we have cases approved far faster than the average processing time.

The client in this case was an executive and manager in the field of business development and entrepreneurial leadership. His work had primarily focused on developing innovative business models, securing necessary funding, product development and supply, managing intellectual property assets, risk assessment, and making investment decisions. He had made original contributions to the field of business development and entrepreneurial leadership by developing successful business models and introducing innovation and technology into the economy.  He had also acted as a judge of the work of other businesses and experts in the shared or similar fields of endeavor by serving as an adjudicator and panelist at conferences and symposia.  In addition, he had played a leading and critical role in multiple internationally recognized and distinguished organizations.  Further, our client and his business endeavors had been highlighted in 13 major business media outlets.  He was a member of the South African Business Network World Almanac and had been admitted as a Full Member of the South African Institute of Management (SAIM).   He had also received a number of lesser nationally or internationally recognized prizes or awards for excellence. Of his accomplishments, one of his independent recommenders remarked, “The medical world is constantly evolving, and because of that, we are always in need of people who are willing to generate new ideas, experiment with new technology advancements, and in so doing, shape the future of medical technology. [Client] is one of those people, and [company] is already on the verge of reshaping the way we view and use BMP products in orthopedics and surgery. His current project with BMP products is groundbreaking, and he has the entrepreneurial-backed potential to reinvigorate the United States economy and at the same time pave new pathways for research and careers in biotechnology and biomedicine.” It was our goal to prove that our client qualified for classification as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability given that he sought to remain in the United States to continue work in the area of business development and entrepreneurial leadership, and that his continued research would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States. With the proof and documentation that we provided, his case was approved in just 2 months.
