“Thank you very much for your help on I140 submission. It’s been a pleasure to work with you.”
On December 2nd, 2017, we received another EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) approval for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Field of Microfluidics (Approval Notice).
General Field: Microfluidics
Position at the Time of Case Filing: Postdoctoral Fellow
Country of Origin: China
State of Residence at the Time of Filing: Georgia
Approval Notice Date: December 2nd, 2017
Processing Time: 12 days (Premium Processing Requested)
A Chinese postdoctoral fellow hired North America Immigration Law Group (NAILG) to file an EB-1A (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) petition on his behalf. He knew that we would do whatever it takes to build a distinct case. Based on the approval notification he received, we did not let him down.
With a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and extensive research experience, our client undoubtedly possessed extraordinary ability in the Field of microfluidics. To prove this point to the USCIS, we set out to gather a wealth of information that supported our case. After collecting as much relevant information as we could, we prepared a personalized EB1A petition packet that highlight our client’s strengths. Among other things, these are some of the main points we focused on:
- We noted our client’s 19 publications—a productive and exemplary record compared to that of his peers in the same field.
- With the help of Google Scholar, we confirmed that our client’s work had amassed 180 citations at the time of filing, proving that he has made significant contributions documented by his publications. This proved to the USCIS that his original research has been considered reliable by others in the field of microfluidics.
- We also highlighted his peer review record. By the time we were ready to file his EB1A petition, he had already conducted at least 45 reviews for a number of scientific journals.
The EB1A Petition Packet:
In addition to the above details, the comprehensive EB1A petition packet consisted of proof that our client is an asset to the United States. We demonstrated that his work is focused on providing a clearer understanding of the particle transport phenomena critical to many chemical and biomedical technologies. To back up our case, several of our client’s peers acknowledged the value of his research in their recommendation letters. These letters confirmed that our client’s work is important to the US and that he should be allowed to continue his research in the country. According to one of these recommenders: “By virtually every standard, [Client] stands well above the average researcher in his field, producing work of high impact and enabling the rapid advancement of his discipline… Indeed, he is a leader in the field whose research is sure to continue benefiting the United States for years to come.”
With the help of Premium Processing (a top-up option that guarantees expedited adjudication), an approval was issued in just 12 days. We congratulate our client on this win and wish him the best as he files an I-485 application— the final step in the green card process.
