Case Summary:

North America Immigration Law Group ( helped a Chinese postdoctoral research scientist in the field of neuropsychopharmacology secure EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition approval just 12 days after filing. To a large extent, the swift adjudication can be attributed to Premium Processing, a service that guarantees action will be taken on the case within 15 days. Additionally, we have no doubt that our professional effort in presenting our client’s impressive achievements played an important role in petition approval.

When we examined our client’s credentials, we found that her pioneering research is focused on investigating the mechanisms underlying common mental illnesses, including sleep disorders, depression, drug addiction, and autism, in order to improve their pharmacological treatment. Her EB1A petition packet included information on her research experiments and how her findings have the potential to bring about a change in the US healthcare sector through the development of safe and effective treatments.

Furthermore, our client’s petition noted her doctoral degree and her exemplary record of authorship. At the time of filing, she had published 17 peer-reviewed scientific articles which had been cited 140 times by numerous researchers around the world. This information, combined with review work that consisted of 30 assessments of the work of her peers, helped build a convincing petition. To bolster our client’s petition, we incorporated several recommendation letters from top experts in her field.

We congratulate our client for securing EB-1A petition approval, and we thank her for retaining our services for the I-485 application. We are currently preparing her application and once ready, will file it on her behalf. In the meantime, we wish our client the best as she continues to conduct impactful research in the US.
