The Part Two and Reference Letters for EB1-Extraordinary Ability Petition

Hi William,

I am preparing the petition in the category of
EB1-Extraordinary Ability. What kind of comments and description that I should put into the Part Two for my accomplishments "in total"? and what are the major consideration for reference letters?


You should set up your EB1-Extraordinary Ability petition in two parts. Part One should be reserved for a discussion of the submitted evidence under the
EB1-Extraordinary Ability regulatory criteria; Part Two should be reserved for a review of your evidence “in its entirety”.

Part Two is where it might be helpful to put in anything that would not be considered sufficient to prove a specific EB-1A criterion, but “in total” show up your achievements to the best advantage. For example, even through travel awards are generally not considered major prizes, the fact that you won several of those awards to attend major conferences gives a full and more accurate picture of your accomplishments.

For reference letters, youn should focus on independent and objective experts in the field who know of your work primarily through reputation, and make sure that the reference letters address how each of your accomplishments meet each individual EB-1A criterion, as well as how the evidence in its entirety demonstrates that you have achieved national or international acclaim, and are one of the very few who have risen to the top of the field.
