It is not uncommon for U.S. employers to recruit worldwide to find qualified employees with expert knowledge in fields ranging from scientific research to specific artistic talents.
At times U.S. employers have difficulty finding U.S. workers with specialized skills required for a certain project. The O-1 visa allows U.S. employers to fill these positions with foreign workers from abroad as long as those workers can prove that they have extraordinary ability in their field.
The O-1 non-immigrant visa is for foreign nationals who have demonstrated extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, or who have a proven record of extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or television industry and have been recognized nationally or internationally for those achievements.
A foreign national would want the O-1 Visa classification in order to work temporarily in the United States on a project or event in his or her area of extraordinary ability. It is required that an employer sponsors a foreign national for an O-1 visa. The foreign national cannot apply for the O-1 visa on their own, the employer must sponsor.
Generally, the O-1 visa employee will be admitted to the U.S. for the estimated time to complete the project or event described in the petition, for a maximum of three (3) years. Once in the U.S., an O-1 visa employee may apply to extend his or her status by one (1) year increments. But remember that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) ultimately determines the time necessary to accomplish the project or event.
If you possess extraordinary abilities, you could come to the U.S. to work temporarily on a project in your area! Apply for your O-1 Visa in a few easy steps!
