Preparing EB1A cases for entrepreneurs is an exceptionally complex process. Unlike other fields, such as science and arts, entrepreneurs and managers do not have clear-cut evidence of exceptional abilities. Therefore, it is very important to examine each evidence and evaluate them individually to ensure they meet all the requirements and then, prepare a detailed application to highlight and define each of their accomplishments to the immigration officer. In this case, the client had received numerous awards from national and international organizations. We were able to present them in the most effective fashion to highlight their importance, relationship to the IT field, and their national and international aspects. The client had also participated as a judge on several events. We successfully highlighted and related his past successes to those events by using support letters and information from each event. The client was also a member of several professional associations and a board member. By gathering official documents, such as bylaws, we proved that his membership was the result of his extraordinary abilities. We were also able to prepare strong evidence and support letters to establish the client’s leading and critical roles in a number of reputable national & international organizations related to his field of endeavor.
The client's goal was to migrate to the United States to continue developing business in the U.S. and create more jobs. We were able to demonstrate his future success in the U.S. through the interest of other U.S. businesses and his past entrepreneurial leadership success.
With the proof and documentation that we provided, his case was approved in just 8 days without a request for further evidence.
