To qualify for an O-1 visa, the employee/performer must be considered to be among the top in his/her field, must be highly talented and demonstrate sustained national or international recognition and acclaim. The standard defining “extraordinary” varies dependent upon the area in which the beneficiary will perform services.
Our approach to processing O-1 Visas
As a preliminary step, our Office will review your resume and assess your chances of success with an O-1 visa. Depending on the amount of time and effort required to make a determination, our Office will undertake to do this for a small administrative fee. The O-1 Visa typically requires extensive research and documentation and predicting a time line is difficult. However, in most situations, we can provide you with a ballpark timeline at the time of the evaluation.
