O Visa Requirements [Infographic]

Although the Trump administration has implemented a visa ban until the end of the year, O visas are one of the few visa applications still available to foreign nationals. The O-1 nonimmigrant visa is for the individual who possesses extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, or who has a demonstrated record of extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or television industry and has been recognized nationally or internationally for those achievements.

To qualify for an O visa, the applicant must demonstrate extraordinary ability through sustained national or international acclaim. They must also demonstrate that they are coming temporarily to the United States to continue working in the area of extraordinary achievement.
