On December 17th, 2018, we received another O1-A (Individuals with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement) approval for a Researcher in the Field of Telecommunications (Approval Notice).

General Field: Telecommunications

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Researcher

Country of Origin: China

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Virginia

Approval Notice Date: December 17th, 2018

Processing Time: 13 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Similar to EB1-A cases, O1-A cases require that beneficiaries demonstrate that they meet at least three of the regulatory criteria set forth by the USCIS, that they have achieved sustained national or international acclaim. In addition, the O-1A petitioner should seek to employ the beneficiary to continue his or her work in the field of endeavor in the United States. Our client, a researcher from China who plans to work in a technology company, approached us to help him file an O1-A petition. It took USCIS merely 13 days to adjudicate our client’s petition thanks to Premium Processing (PP).

We put together our client’s O1-A petition by presenting evidence to support the argument that he is a top researcher in the field. Based on what we learned, his research focused on developing mobile hotspot networks for the next generation of mobile communications. In fact, his work has contributed to the development of new mobile hotspot network systems and numerous improvements to 5G wireless technology, and has an huge impact on mobile and wireless communication systems. He has demonstrated his professional achievement through 19 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 22 peer-reviewed conference proceedings, 2 granted U.S. patents, and 13 reviews he conducted. Through one of his projects, our client laid out a substantial foundation for the continued development of mobile hotspot networks for 4G and 5G communication by developing a millimeter wave-based high-speed mobile wireless backhaul system that works on high-speed moving vehicles like passenger trains.

An important part of our client’s customized O1-A petition packet consisted of recommendation letters, all of which were contributed by notable experts in the field. These experts highlighted the fact that our client’s work is in the best interest of the US and that he should be allowed to continue his research on the development of mobile communications in the United States. Here is how one of the recommenders described our client and his research “I have personally cited [Client]’s work on multiple occasions, using it to aid my projects in areas (…). The numerous citations of [Client]’s work are very significant, as they show the level of influence that his research has had on the studies on his peers within the field of information technology”.

Although our client’s strong credentials is well suited for O1-A, it is important to make sure that he stands out from the huge amount of applications the USCIS received. With our experienced legal team and rigorous methods of customizing our client’s petition, we were able to build a convincing petition for our client. We congratulate our client for his case approval, and we thank him for choosing North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to represent his O1-A petition.
