Are you an Immigrant with Extraordinary ability?

March 7, 2012

Did you know that the United States offers the opportunity to attain specialized visas to those who are considered Aliens Of Extraordinary Ability? An Alien Of Extraordinary Ability is someone the United States deems valuable, or a worthy candidate to be an asset to the US. One way in which this occurs is via O Visas.

O Visas may be granted to scientists, educators, artists, athletes, and business professionals, allowing them to come to the U.S. temporarily if a U.S. employer vouches for them in the form of a petition. The O visa also allows aliens of extraordinary ability to live in the U.S. and work in their field of expertise for a specific amount of time, after which point the alien of extraordinary ability may renew, or request permission to become a permanent resident of the United States.

What qualifications are helpful in acquiring an O Visa?

Non-United States citizens may be considered outstanding if they achieved internationally recognized awards such as the Nobel Prize, or specialized training in rare or difficult fields of study. They may be asked to provide documentation that validates any claimed abilities or qualifications. Sometimes O visas may be granted for members of exclusive scholarly associations known for contributing to society academically.

Another Visa that may be granted to Aliens of Outstanding ability is the O1B Visa, which is granted to artists such as performers, painters, musicians, actors, film makers and writers. If you are an immigrant in or outside of the United States and want to know if you qualify for an Alien of extraordinary ability Visa, please contact Immigration Attorney Susan B. Henner now at 914-358-5200 for a free consultation.
