O-1A Is for people with extraordinary ability in education, business, science or the arts.

O-1B is for individuals who can demonstrate that they have been recognized nationally or internationally in film or television.

O-1 visa holders are also able to apply for integral team members to join them in the United States for a specific event or performance. This person is granted an O-2 visa.

O-1 visa holders are permitted to bring their spouses to the United States on an O-3 visa.

O-1 for Entrepreneurs

While the O-1 is a well-known route for the arts and sciences, it is less well known as a path for entrepreneurs and business owners. In addition to successfully assisting artists and scientists, Davies & Associates has helped entrepreneurs and businessmen move to the United States on an O-1 visa.

We work with our clients to prepare the strongest and most credible case. This includes determining the best documentation to support the assertion that our client is of extraordinary talent. Such documentation includes prizes, publications, membership associations, patents, media coverage, employment history, etc.

Businessmen and entrepreneurs have multiple different options for moving to the United States. Davies & Associates specializes in helping entrepreneurs understand the merits of the different options and works to find the best solution to suit each client’s circumstances.

Besides the O-1 visa, other options for entrepreneurs include:
  • The L-1 Visa - Expand your business to the United States and move there to run that business
  • The E-2 Visa – Purchase or set-up a business in the United States
  • The EB-5 Visa – Invest in a green card for the freedom to conduct business in the United States

Mark is one of the best things happened to me in immigration. I was very skeptical as my last attempt to obtain an L1A was a negative one through another lawyer. Mark came in and… [made] sure that the case [was refiled] successfully. Rest assured, I can vouch for his services and will recommend him highly.
