If you possess extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, or if you have a demonstrated record of extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or television industry and have been recognized nationally or internationally for those achievements, then the O visa is your ticket to coming to the United States. If there are any foreign nationals with critical skills and experience who are an integral part of your team, they can even accompany you through an O-2 visa.
O-1 visas are issued to foreign nationals of extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics. These visas allow you to stay in the U.S. for up to 3 years, depending on the timing of the event you will participate in. To qualify for an O-1 visa, you must be coming to the United States to perform services in your area of achievement and have a contract in place with an employer or agent.
- Gain lawful entry into the United States.
- Have permission to reenter the United States and travel within the country.
- Bring your dependents with you to the United States.
To be eligible for an O visa, the following requirements must be satisfied:
- The beneficiary must demonstrate extraordinary ability by sustained national or international acclaim
- The beneficiary must be coming temporarily to the United States to continue work in the area of extraordinary ability
- A contract must exist between the petitioner and extraordinary ability beneficiary
- The petitioner must file a Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, with fee, on behalf of the extraordinary ability beneficiary.
- The petition may not be filed more than one year before the actual need for the alien's services.
- To avoid delays, the Form I-129 should be filed at least 45 days before the date of employment.

Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly does it mean to have “extraordinary ability”?
Extraordinary ability in the fields of science, education, business or athletics means a level of expertise indicating that the person is one of the small percentage who has risen to the very top of the field of endeavor.
Extraordinary ability in the field of arts means distinction. Distinction means a high level of achievement in the field of the arts evidenced by a degree of skill and recognition substantially above that ordinarily encountered to the extent that a person described as prominent is renowned, leading, or well-known in the field of arts.
In the motion picture or television industry, the beneficiary must demonstrate extraordinary achievement evidenced by a degree of skill and recognition significantly above that ordinarily encountered to the extent the person is recognized as outstanding, notable or leading in the motion picture and/or television field.
Can I still qualify for a visa if I don’t have a signed contract yet?
USCIS will accept an oral contract, as evidenced by the summation of the elements of the oral agreement. Such evidence may include but is not limited to: emails between the contractual parties, a written summation of the terms of the agreement, or any other evidence that demonstrates that an oral agreement was created.
The summary of the terms of the oral agreement must contain: 1.What was offered by the employer 2.What was accepted by the employee
The summary does not have to be signed by both parties to establish the oral agreement. However, it must document the terms of the employment offered and that the beneficiary has agreed to the offer.
Can I have my agent sponsor me for an O visa?
Yes, provided your agent can provide USCIS with a contractual agreement between you and your agent that specifies the wage offered and other terms and conditions of employment.
If you will be working in more than one location, the petition must also include an itinerary with the dates and locations of work. The itinerary should at a minimum indicate what type of work the beneficiary will be engaged, where, and when this work will take place.

We hired her firm over a year ago and after a long battle where she led us through all the hoops and many unforeseen obstacles. Many times we felt the difficulties, she never gave up on us and helped us through our hard time. Thank you and your firm for fighting for us and working so hard for making my dream of living in the US a reality.
Ms. Julia helped through the immigration process and she was highly professional and helpful through the entire process!
She is superbly efficient and professional. From beginning to end I have felt comfortable and secure in her judgment and I have nothing but praise and recommendation for her.
I have only been her client for a short time but she is very knowledgeable and responds to you in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend her to friends.
My wife is undergoing heart surgery, and due to the nature of my job I would be needing someone to take care my wife while I am under Military deployment. I talked to different lawyers but no one says that it is possible to bring my wife's niece from outside the US. Ms. Cueva however, made it possible to bring my wife's niece into the US as her caretaker for one year while I am overseas. She did so with a positive attitude and was very helpful in the process. Ms. Cueva was very kind and respectful and determined to get the job done.
