O-1 visa application

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Thanks for all your comments - a great avenue to help each other out. I am wondering if you can comment on my wife's O1-visa application profile. We haven't heard back on her H1B lottery so are exploring other avenues.

1. She has a PhD in Chem. Engg.

2. Works as a PostDoc at a federal research lab on H1 visa (government institution so cap-exempt)

3. Will transfer over to a fortune 500 company as an engineer (this company will apply for O1)

4. Has a patent, another provisional paent in her name

5. 10 journals, 15 conference presentations, 50 citations

6. Has peer-reviewed for 10 journals

7. Couple of local awards

8. Can get recommendations from internationally acclaimed researchers

Looking forward to your thoughts.

hmm...good profile...i would advice you to sit with an attorney with your resume to go over if your wife qualifies for O Visa...you might want to check if she can qualify for EB1 visa too.

This may be possible, but I would need additional information. These filings can be rather challenging, so I would recommend against filing an O-1 without the assistance of an attorney.
