EB-1B Approval in Just 2 Days

Recently, an EB-1B Outstanding Professor case filed by Zhang & Associates on behalf of a client was approved within 2 days of filing.  The case was mailed out on June 14, received by the Nebraska Service Center on June 16, and approved on June 18.  Using premium processing, the case was approved within 2 days, instead of the allotted 15 days, and approved without USCIS issuing a Request for Evidence.   
In order to qualify for an EB-1B, the petitioner must satisfy at least two of the following six categories: (1) receipt of major prizes or awards for outstanding achievement in the academic field; (2) membership in associations in the academic field which require outstanding achievements of their members; (3) published material in professional publications written by others about the alien’s work in the academic field; (4) participation as the judge of the work of others in the same or an allied academic field; (5) original scientific or scholarly research contributions to the academic field; or (6) authorship of scholarly books or articles in the academic field.  The advantage of EB-1B is that it is a less stringent standard than the EB-1A Extraordinary Ability petition and an immigrant visa number is immediately available.  However, the petition must be employer sponsored and the employer must qualify to sponsor the EB-1B.  From January 2010 to June 2010, Zhang & Associates has had 101 EB-1B approvals.

In this specificcase, the client is a professor at a university, working in the field of mathematics, particularly in difference sets.   For the case, 4 categories were claimed: (1) original scientific contributions; (2) authored scholarly articles; (3) participation as a judge of the work of others; and (4) published material in professional publications written by others about the client’s work in the field.  By highlighting information such as the fact that the client discovered a theorem which subsequently became named after him; his citation record; the prestige of the journals in which he published his scholarly work; and other relevant information, in combination with detailed documentation and great organization, Zhang & Associates was able to present a strong case to USCIS on behalf of the client.  As a result, the case was quickly approved without any second guessing by USCIS.   

Attorney Alex Park worked on the case.
