Case type: O-1 Extraordinary Ability petition
Our client was a physician specializing in nephrology medicine, practicing for about one year after fellowship training. Because he had exhausted the six-year limit on H-1B visa, we applied for the O-1 extraordinary ability visa. We highlighted his presentations and publications, critical role as chief fellow, and substantial medical contributions to support four of the 10 criteria. USCIS approved the O-1 petition in fewer than 15 days.
