Nonimmigrant Visa for Aliens of Extraordinary Ability (O Visa)
At Sethi Law Group we know that there are some foreign nationals wishing to enter the United States to do extraordinary things with their talents. Those nationals who possess extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics may qualify for an O-Visa. Also, for those who have demonstrated outstanding successes in the entertainment industry may also be eligible for an O-Visa.
The O Visa allows an outstanding individual to perform work only in his or her area of extraordinary ability.
To qualify for an O-Visa and demonstrate that a foreign national possesses an extraordinary ability, he or she must be able to document three of the following qualifications:
Additionally, the employer wishing to employ a foreign national possessing extraordinary abilities must provide a financial statement and description of the work the individual in O-Visa will perform while in the United States.
In addition to the O-1 Visa, the O-2 Visa is available to those interesting in serving as support personnel of a visa holder in O-1 status. The O-2 visa is available to support personnel of an O-1 visa holder in the fields of athletics, entertainment, motion pictures and television production. However, this status is not available to those in the fields of science, business or education.
