The Citations as Strong Evidence for My Green Card Application

Hi William:

As a post-doctor for 3 years, I plan to apply for Green Card in both EB1-Extraordinary Ability and National Interest Waiver categories. I have over 30 citations for my publications. How could I use the citations as strong evidence for my Green Card application?


When evaluating citations to an alien’s work, USCIS will determine the significance of the alien’s original contribution to the field that resulted in the citation. 

In some cases, inclusion of a lengthy list of referenced articles that often accompany published articles might be probative of the alien’s ability, because the alien’s contributions served as a significant, original contribution that spurred the subsequent references and citations.
