Move to the USA with an O-1 Visa

If you want to live and work in the United States, but don’t have a Green Card or a U.S. citizen family member to sponsor your visa, then an O-1 visa may be the best option for you. This type of visa is available exclusively to people who can demonstrate extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics. If you are eligible as an O-1 applicant, then we’ll walk you through every step of the process!

Who Can Get an O-1 Visa?

If you have an extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, then you are eligible for an O-1 visa. This type of visa is reserved for people with extraordinary abilities who can demonstrate their skills and talents on a national or international level.


As the O-1 visa is available for people who want to come to the U.S. temporarily to work in their field of expertise, they may also bring a spouse and unmarried child(ren) under age 21 in a dependent status.

What is the Process for Obtaining an O-1 Visa?

To get an O-1 visa, you’ll need to fill out a petition for the visa with a U.S. employer that agrees to sponsor you. Then, if the visa is approved, you will be granted the right to work in the United States. If this is what you need, then we can help you figure out all of the details and guide you through each step of the process. We will also provide guidance on legal issues and common mistakes that people make when they’re going through this process.

How to Apply for an O-1 Visa

To apply for an O-1 visa, we will assist your company with submitting a petition on your behalf with the associated filing fee. You will also need to provide evidence of your extraordinary ability, including proof that you have achieved national or international acclaim in your field.


As you may understand, obtaining an O-1 Visa is a relatively straightforward but detailed process. Although it may seem that there are only a few steps to follow, there can be misinterpretations of questions, statements or process that we are able to guide you through. With an experienced immigration expert by your side, you can be assured that you will not experience common pitfalls that others might. We only request that you submit the proper information and documents to us, and we’ll do the rest. You’ll be on your way to living in the USA with an O-1 Visa.
