O-1 Visa: Individuals with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement

OvisaFolks who would like to work in the United States often ask about the O-1 visa for “Aliens of Outstanding Ability.”  We, of course, think that you are all outstanding.  To get this visa, though, you need to fit very specific requirements.

미국에서 취업을 원하시는 많은 분들이O-1 비자  (특수 재능 소유자들을 위한 비자)에 관해 궁금해 하십니다.  저희는 당연히 모든 분들이 다 특수하고 재능이 있다고 생각을 합니다.  이러한  O-1 비자를 받기 위해서는 아래 특별한 조건에 해당이 되어야 합니다.

Broadly speaking, O-1 applicants need to demonstrate that they have extraordinary expertise or achievement within their field. It’s not enough to be intelligent, well-qualified, or good at your job; an O-1 applicant must document that they have received sustained national or international recognition for their work. The applicant also needs a job offer from a U.S. employer, who can then submit a petition on their behalf to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). If USCIS approves that petition, the O-1 applicant will have an in-person interview at the U.S. Embassy.

USCIS has an excellent summary of O-1 requirements on its website (English only), as well as a more detailed description of how to prove “outstanding ability.”

대체로 O-1 비자 신청자들은 본인의 분야에서 특별한 전문 지식이나 업적이 있음을 보여 주어어야 합니다. 단지 뛰어난 지식이나 자격, 또는 귀하의 일을 잘한다고 되는 것이 아니고 O-1 비자 신청자들은 반드시 본인들의 분야에서 국내외 적으로 한결같은 인지도가 있음을 증명해야 합니다. 신청자는 미국이민국에 비자신청자를 위해 청원서를 제출해야하는 미국 고용주로부터의 고용계약서가 있어야 합니다. 만약 미국이민국에서 청원서가 승인이 되면 O-1 비자 신청자는 미국대사관에서 인터뷰를 통해서 비자를 받아야 합니다.

미국이민국 홈페이지에서 특수재능 소지자임을 증명할수 있는 안내를 포함한 O-1 비자에 관해 잘 요약(영어) 되어 있음을 확인하실 수 있습니다.
