Outstanding Researcher Status for an Accomplished Chinese Researcher
Client: An outstanding researcher at a prestigious cardiovascular research Institute
Client’s Nationality: Chinese
Location: Cleveland, Ohio
BACKGROUND: Our client is an accomplished and experienced researcher with a doctoral degree. When we first met, he was almost out of H-1B status. He thus retained us to file a petition under outstanding researcher category.
Date of Application: June 11, 2009
Date of Approval: June 19, 2009
WE HELPED OUR CLIENT that he met ALL criteria to demonstrate his extraordinary ability as a researcher. Our client published frequently. His papers were cited many times and contributed to significant progress in his field of study. We highlighted his most important achievement: his research led to more accurate diagnostic techniques for neural diseases.
CHALLENGE: Once our client was actually accomplished in a field as a researcher, evidence will allow us to argue well. Unlike EB-1A Petition for Alien with Extraordinary Ability in Arts, Science or Athletic, outstanding researcher category requires employers to sponsor their choice employee. Your employer needs a great argument to prove why it really needs you. Namely, difficulty in argument crafting for outstanding researcher status may still require legal assistance.
EIGHT DAYS LATER, our client secured an offer from the same employer.
