Ivan's O-1 Extraordinary Ability Visa RFE Success Story

A success story in which an unusual RFE was received for a business coach's O-1 Extraordinary Ability Visa questioning nearly every one of our client's claims.
SAN FRANCISCO - June 19, 2018 - PRLog -- Ivan was a prominent Russian-based business coach, having his own distribution company for providing his lessons in scaling his clients' businesses with sagacious advice on everything from maximizing product quality to effectively focused marketing. He had earned significant sums of revenue through the business and other ventures he had been a part of and now wished to continue expanding on his success by bringing his services to the United States.

In order to prove that Ivan merited a granting of the O-1 visa for extraordinary ability, evidence needed to be provided that he had received a major, internationally-recognized award, such as a Nobel Prize, or evidence of at least three of the following:

• Receipt of nationally or internationally recognized prizes or awards for excellence in the field of endeavor
• Membership in associations in the field for which classification is sought which require outstanding achievements, as judged by recognized national or international experts in the field
• Published material in professional or major trade publications, newspapers or other major media about the beneficiary and the beneficiary's work in the field for which classification is sought
• Original scientific, scholarly, or business-related contributions of major significance in the field
• Authorship of scholarly articles in professional journals or other major media in the field for which classification is sought
• A high salary or other remuneration for services as evidenced by contracts or other reliable evidence
• Participation on a panel, or individually, as a judge of the work of others in the same or in a field of specialization allied to that field for which classification is sought
• Employment in a critical or essential capacity for organizations and establishments that have a distinguished reputation

If these standards didn't readily apply to our client, comparable evidence could also be submitted in order to establish eligibility.

USCIS Issues a Request for Evidence
Uncharacteristically for such an O-1 petition, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued a Request for Evidence (RFE) probing into the qualifying validity of nearly every one of the application's claims for satisfying the extraordinary ability criteria.
