O Visas: Opening Doors to Extraordinary Talent

An O visa is a nonimmigrant visa category designed for individuals with exceptional talents and achievements in specific fields. It allows you to reside and work in the United States temporarily. Beneficiaries of these visas must meet strict eligibility requirements through extensive documentation demonstrating qualification. 

At Griffith Immigration Law, we work with individuals from all walks of life who seek to come to the U.S. for various reasons and in many capacities. Our team is highly experienced in resolving all types of visa applications. 

Founding attorney Raymond Griffith is the son of immigrants, and all of his staff are either immigrants or first-generation descendants of immigrants. We understand the challenges and frustrations of dealing with complex U.S. immigration law and are here to help take on the burdens of the visa application process.

Overview of O Visas

The O visa category is divided into three subcategories: O-1A for individuals with extraordinary ability in the sciences, education, business, or athletics; O-1B for individuals with extraordinary ability in the arts or extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or television industry; and O-2 for essential support personnel of O-1 visa holders.

The primary purpose of the O visa is to attract and retain individuals who possess exceptional skills and talents that benefit the United States. By granting these individuals the opportunity to work in the country, the O visa promotes cultural exchange, innovation, and advancement in various industries.

Eligibility for O Visas

To be eligible for an O visa, you must demonstrate extraordinary abilities in your field. This can be proven through a sustained record of internationally recognized awards, significant contributions to your field, membership in prestigious organizations, published material about your work, high salary, or other forms of recognition.

You must intend to work in the same field of your extraordinary ability during your stay in the U.S., have an employment offer or sponsorship from a U.S. employer, and meet the requirements demonstrating your achievements and contributions to your field of endeavor.
