The US offers numerous non-immigration visas. The O-1 visa for example, is a temporary visa that allows a person to work while in the US. Once the visa has been properly applied for and approved, the visa is issued pretty quickly when compared to other visas. Although it is a temporary visa, you can request an unlimited number of extensions, at one-year increments. The O-1 visa also allows the visa holder to travel in and out of the US, or if they chose, stay in the US the whole time the visa is valid. This perk is also granted to the immediate family of the O-1 visa holder. To qualify for an O-1 visa, the applicant must be able to prove that they have an extraordinary ability in the field of science, arts, education, business, or athletics. There are numerous ways to prove your “extraordinary ability”, however it would be easier to prove this with the assistance of a competent and experienced immigration attorney. Once the applicant is granted their visa, the applicant must be coming into the US to perform in the area or filed that is their field of extraordinary ability.
