O-1 Visa

The O-1 is a non-immigrant visas available to aliens of extraordinary ability in the fields of art, science, education, business or athletics. O-1 visa holders enter the US to perform work that requires such extraordinary ability. To be eligible for O-1 visa, an alien must have achieved a level of expertise that puts him among the small percentage of individuals who have risen to the very top in the alien’s field. A qualified alien can bring his dependents (spouse and children) to the US. An alien on O-1 visa and his dependents can travel outside the US and return. Aliens on O-1 visas do not have to maintain residency in a foreign country and are allowed to have “double intent”. The advantages of O-1 visa is that it may be extended indefinitely and it is not subject to a quota, which is the case with some other visas, namely H-1b.
