Being Certified Public Accountant qualifies for Extraordinary Ability ?

Recommended Posts



I may have the same questions like most of them. All I have seen here are  the people  from India with engineering degrees. I have done Bachelor degree  in Commerce (B.Com) from India and M.B.A  ( Accounting ) from USA.


I wanted to know what exactly does extraordinary ability means. If all that it means is about the qualifications and degrees , then I would like to know that being a person from accounting background, If i obtain professional certifications like Certified Public Accountant , Certified Management Accountant  and other such premier qualifications in my field of work ( which are treated to be highest professional certifications in that area of specialization) be treated/considered for being qualified as extraordinary ability. 


I have written to few attorneys and most of the replies that i have got are that they aren't sure  as they have not come across such situations.

That is not what EA is for.

EA means people with PhDs, people with patents, etc.

Sorry, but CPAs are a dime a dozen.

CPA is not exceptional; it is in many career paths a requirement to practice.


A professor of accounting with a PhD and publications, etc. might qualify.
