Extraordinary Ability

We have a winning formula for achieving results.

Foreign nationals who possess “extraordinary ability” in the sciences, arts, business, education or athletics can qualify for the coveted O nonimmigrant visa category or the employment-based first preference (EB-1-1) immigrant visa category. While the criteria for nonimmigrant and immigrant extraordinary ability status are the same for those in business, education, and sciences, standards for O performing artists and those in motion picture and TV are less rigorous.

We have helped a wide variety of professionals obtain extraordinary ability status, including:
