to Demonstrate the Extraordinary Ability in My O-1 Visa Application?
A company invited me to work on an ongoing research project in U.S. Now, I am considering the possibility to apply for O-1 Visa. How to understand the term "event" in the O-1 visa qualification criteria? and how to demonstrate the "extraordinary ability" in my O-1 visa application?
For qualification criteria of O-1 visa, the alien applicant should come to U.S. to work or perform at an event or a series of events in the area of extraordinary ability. The term “event" can be interpreted liberally not only in the fields of athletics or arts, but can also include an ongoing research project for a U.S. company.
To meet the O-1 visa requirement of extraordinary ability in science, education, business, or athletics, the applicant must be able to show extraordinary ability, and receipt of sustained national or international acclaim for it. This can be demonstrated if the person has accomplished at least three of the following:
