O-1 — Aliens of Extraordinary Ability

O-1 classification is reserved for foreign nationals of “extraordinary ability” who have risen to the top of their profession. For many employers, O-1 offers a useful alternative to the more rigid H-1B classification, which is subject to an annual numerical cap. Often, due to this cap and other H-1B restrictions, the O-1 provides the only option for hiring a key person right away. We have expertise preparing O-1s for talented people of various backgrounds, including businesspersons, musicians, filmmakers, dancers, engineers, and scientists.
