O-1 Alien of Extraordinary Ability:

Establishing Eligibility for the 0-1 Category:

  • Extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business or athletics which has been "demonstrated by sustained national or international acclaim".
  • The definition of "extraordinary ability" varies depending on the type of beneficiary. Specifically, the law enacts three different standards.
  • 0-1 category:
    • (1) the most exacting standards apply to aliens in the sciences, education, business, and athletics;
    • (2) a much less rigorous standard applies to individual aliens in the arts; and
    • (3) an intermediate standard applies to aliens of extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or TV industries. However, all beneficiaries petitioning under the 0-1 category must be able to demonstrate their extraordinary ability through extensive documentation.

    to perform under a reciprocal exchange program.
