What counts as extraordinary ability?
The O-1 visa is for those who have been recognized as individuals with
extraordinary ability in a certain field. The visa will allow you to come
to the United States to continue work in the same field for a temporary
period of time and return to your country at the end of your visa's
Here are some examples of the fields that are considered in extraordinary
- Scientific discovery
- The arts
- Motion picture or television industry
To be considered as one of extraordinary achievement, you will need to
show that you have received national or international acclaim. This means
that you will need to demonstrate that you are part of the small percentage
of business, science, or education professionals who are considered to
be leaders of the field. If you are extraordinary in the arts, then you
will need to show significant distinction through a high level of achievement
through skill and recognition. To be considered as an extraordinary individual
in the motion picture industry, you must be recognized as outstanding
in the field.
Why You Need a Lawyer on Your Side
One of the most important aspects of the application process for this visa
is the consultation. As part of the application,
you will need a written advisory from a peer group dictating your skill level and whether or not you should be considered
as one of extraordinary ability. If you are part of the motion picture
industry, the advisory must come from an appropriate labor union and management
organization. Your peer group (or selected representative) must be a part
of the same field, and they must have expertise in your field to accurately
ascertain your level of ability.
Obtaining an effective consultation is a serious matter that should be
dealt with by your attorney. Our Orange County immigration lawyers can
work to ensure that the advisory comes from a non-biased party, and that
it accurately represents your abilities. We have handled these cases in
the past, and we know how to help you effectively pursue the results that you need.
