O1 Visa is for the extraordinary ability person that coming to united states to work with their profession. The O1 is based on couple of thing and factors meeting is minimum requirements, not only just meet the requirements but also that this person has raised to the top of their profession. So, the there’s a number of these categories are:
Whether they have won a national or international award. Well that can be utilized and thought of in a couple of different ways to explain. For example, if this person is a couch or did they couch someone to win an international award, maybe they won any sports (like Wimbledon), maybe they won any US gymnastics championship. Any of those things can e applied if the person has the evidence to support them.
Another category is membership in elite association, this requires looking at the association and seeing if there’s a threshold, this does not work if the person just a member of say the association for industry. Anybody can get into those, if they’re an industry it has to have a threshold it has to to be difficult and they have been experts that person appointed the person to it.
The next category is publications about the individual. Now these publications have to be either a major media (which is like Newsweek or New York times or trade journals). This can be the websites or the publications that deal with that specific industry. The other things they need to meet or judging the work of others. If they sit on a panel or individually to do that as long as their jobs isn’t to judge the work of others. Coaches can’t take credit for this because that’s all they do. But, say a tech person that’s put on a panel to look another tech company, absolutely can do that. Another thing they look at is, high salary. If that person has a salary that’s higher than other profession that can also be credited. Catching all the major contributions that the person may have done.
We make experts talk about these contributions and other to talk about these contributions and other and talk about how they meet these specific qualifications.
Other things besides contribution can be whether or not someone is published an article or a book themselves within their industry.
Immigration wants those things to be scholarly or technical,
so blogs aren’t really sufficient but, other can be. So, those are the essentially of the criteria. If the person is raise to the top as indicated by experts that can help.
We look into O1 Visa as having three types of evidences:
• Initial evidence: This is an article, this is an award. These are the things not based on opinion.
• Second Evidence: These are opinion letters. These are the experts, and theses experts cannot be within the circle of influence. But needs to be somebody that has some independence that can look at the evidence.
• Tertiary Evidence: The third level of evidence, which are pieces of evidence that supports the primary evidence (award, scholarly article or industry experts). These are highly subjective eases.
This O1 Visa is for good for three years, but it can be extended in perpetuity and they lead to automatic deal with the EB1 Visa (Extraordinary ability green card visa). Lot of people don’t realise it but those are similar standards but has to be more sustained in higher level for EB1, but no one a good way to get there.
