How to Get an O-1 Visa Extension

Like an EB-1 immigrant visa, an O-1 visa is also for aliens who possess extraordinary abilities but are in the non-immigrant category. It is available for those who possess extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics or who have demonstrated a record of extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or television industry and have been recognized nationally or internationally for those achievements.

What are the requirements to file for an O-1 visa extension?

Before you decide to apply for an O-1 Visa extension, you should make sure that you comply with certain requirements. It is pertinent because if you fail to comply with those requirements, your application for an extension could be rejected by the authorities. 

How can I apply for an O-1 visa extension? 

You should keep track of when you will apply for an extension. Don’t apply too late otherwise, your O-1 visa status will expire before the approval of your extension application, and you have to leave the US.
