visa2 - The O-1 Visa: Extraordinary Abilities

The O-1 visa can be granted to a limited number of individuals with exceptional abilities, including artists, entertainers, athletes, researchers and other highly skilled professionals.

It is important to note that there are two categories of the O-1 visa:

– scientists, athletes, entrepreneurs, researchers;

– entertainers and artists (actors, fashion designers, art designers)

In order to qualify for the O-1 visa, one must correspond to some of the following criteria:

  • Internationally recognized prize or formal recognition of excellence
  • Evidence of high compensation in their field of work
  • Current or past work in a professional, highly reputable organization
  • Articles and publications in a mainstream media
  • Original contribution in their field of endeavor (novelties, discoveries, etc.)

Obtaining an O-1 visa, which may eventually lead to Permanent Residence/Green Card, is a complex bureaucratic process which requires the assistance of a qualified immigration lawyer
