Understanding O Visas

O Visas are a category of non-immigrant visas designated for individuals who possess extraordinary abilities or have achieved significant recognition in their respective fields. These visas are divided into two primary categories:

O-1A Visa: Reserved for individuals with extraordinary abilities in the sciences, education, business, or athletics.

O-1B Visa: Intended for individuals with extraordinary achievements in the arts, including music, film, television, fashion, and more.

Key Benefits of O Visas

O Visas offer several advantages, making them an attractive choice for individuals with exceptional talents:

Temporary Residency: O Visa holders are granted temporary legal status in the United States to pursue opportunities related to their extraordinary abilities or achievements.

Flexibility: O Visa holders can work for multiple employers, engage in self-employment, and take on various projects while in the U.S.

Dependents: O Visa holders can bring their immediate family members (spouse and unmarried children under 21) to the U.S. on O-3 visas.

Duration: O Visas can be initially granted for up to three years and can be extended in one-year increments for as long as the extraordinary work continues.

Dear Mr. Ahluwalia, I would like to thank you for all your help with Dr. xxx case. She and I were very impressed with your services and the professionalism that you showed both of us.

I am forwarding your information for xxxx to contact you and make arrangements accordingly. Thank you for all your help.

Dr. F.

Inderjit, thank you so very much. I sincerely appreciate all the effort you took to get this approved and your incredible patience. As xxx mentioned, we will only work with you for all our future H1's. Thanks once again.


Inderjit handled our immigration matter in reference to my parents. We approached him and found him extremely pleasant to work with. In addition to his knowledge of the law, he guided us very well throughout the process. I would recommend him very strongly to anyone in matter of immigration.
