What Is Immigration Law?

Immigration law defines a person's citizenship and residency status, which binds them with rights and obligations. It also manages how a non-resident of the U.S. may gain residency, citizenship, or visitation rights. Deportation is also a part of immigration law.

United States immigration is governed by four ideals:

  • To unify families that have been dispersed.
  • To bring foreign nationals who have skills to contribute to the U.S. economy.
  • To protect refugees and people at risk.
  • To increase diversity.

O-1 Visa

What Is the O-1 Visa?

The O-1 visa is a temporary work permit for those with extraordinary talents or skills. It's an easy visa to get, but only if the job is set up ahead of time and the person doing the job has special skills that the position needs.

The O-1 visa first appeared in 1990. Special status for exceptional immigrants had been around since 1965, but it was still a slow process. The O-1 gets around some of that by being a temporary work visa, and visa holders can still petition for a permanent green card while they work in the U.S.

What Gets You an O-1 Visa?

The extraordinary ability you need to get an O-1 visa can include any field, such as science, medicine, education, athletics, business, art, and entertainment. However, the people who apply for the visa hav
