O-1 visa unlocks your career opportunities in the U.S. This visa allows the top tech talent and leaders from around the world to work in the U.S. for up to 3 years, with unlimited extensions in 1-year increments.
O-1 is among the visas that are considered dual intent, so your status will not be jeopardized or otherwise negatively affected by filing a petition for a green card. For many, this is the most valuable of the O-1 visa benefits
UNLIMITED VALIDITY PERIOD
Here is where the O-1 visa benefits really pay off. Most other visas have a limited duration of stay. In contrast, the O-1 offers an initial period of stay of three years but allows for unlimited one-year extensions
VERSATILITY OF SPONSOR
Most visas that require a sponsor maintain that the sponsor should be an employer. However, because O-1 visa applicants are often contracted rather than hired at will, the sponsor can either be an employer or a U.S. agent.
FAMILY MEMBERS AND ASSISTANTS
You can bring your family along. Additionally, you can bring along assistants that can be considered essential to your work in the U.S.
NO DEGREE OR LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS
No need to hold a college degree, since academic qualifications will not be taken into account (unless you have a PhD, in that case - bring it on!). Additionally there is no English language requirement
When viewed in the light of other nonimmigrant visas, the O-1 is relatively inexpensive
