Success Stories: USCIS Approves EB-1A Petition of a Chinese Research Associate in the Field of Biochemistry Just 14 days after Filing (129 Citations, 6 Publications)

Client’s Testimonial:

“Thank you very much for your great help.”

On May 22nd, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Research Associate in the Field of Biochemistry (Approval Notice).


General Field: Biochemistry

Position at the Time of Case Filing: Research Associate

Country of Origin: China

Service Center: Texas Service Center (TSC)

State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Massachusetts

Approval Notice Date: May 22nd, 2017

Processing Time: 14 days (Premium Processing Requested)

Case Summary:

Just 14 days after North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) filed an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on behalf of a Massachusetts-based research associate specializing in biochemistry, the USCIS approved his case. This prompt adjudication was a result of Premium Processing (PP), a paid service offered by the USCIS which allows petitioners to have action taken on their cases within 15 calendar days rather than 4-9 months.

We started off the process by evaluating our client’s body of research to ascertain if he was suitably qualified for this strict visa category. After confirming the authenticity of his credentials, we countersigned the legal agreement and focused on building a strong EB-1A petition for him. The contents of the petition dossier included:

  1. A total of 6 recommendation letters signed by other experts in the field of biochemistry were used to reinforce our client’s case. According to one of these experts: Whether facilitating new scientific advancements or articulating new therapeutic development strategies, [Client] has clearly made his mark on the biological research community. Not only has he furthered scientific research, but his work’s practicality has directly influenced the lives of average Americans across the country.” These letters undoubtedly acknowledged our client’s contributions when it comes to the improvement of American healthcare.
  2. At the time of filing, our client had already published 6 journal articles and had a patent application to his credit. This strengthened his case immensely and reflected his expertise and experience in the field.
  3. We highlighted the 129 times his work had been cited by his peers and the 30 peer reviews he had conducted for high impact journals.
  4. We also highlighted our client’s excellent educational qualifications including his master’s and Ph.D. degrees in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. This educational background enabled him to carry out stellar research focused on molecular and integrative physiological sciences. His work has contributed to applications that unravel the molecular mechanisms of different diseases. Undoubtedly, our client’s research leads to an in-depth understanding of the molecular components that control biological functions and development, which positively impacts the production of biological therapeutics used to treat debilitating human diseases. Needless to say, his continued presence in the United States will advance the field of biochemistry to a great extent.

We thank our client for working with us and congratulate him for securing an EB-1A petition approval. We wish him well as he tackles the next part of the green card process (filing an I-485 application) using our complimentary D.I.Y packet.
