Jensen & Jensen regularly assists a large number of individuals with ”outstanding ability” in their fields to obtain United States permanent resident status. We take particular pride in our excellent record of success with extraordinary ability applications. You may email your resume to email@example.com for an evaluation of your chances of success if we assist you to make this type of application.
To file a petition under the outstanding professor or researcher category, an individual must show, through extensive documentation and expert letters of support, that he or she is recognized internationally as outstanding in a specific academic area.
Evidence of outstanding ability as a professor or researcher is determined by showing at least two of the following:
These criteria are only guidelines for determining outstanding ability as a professor or researcher. Merely proving two of the above does not automatically result in the approval of the petition. The USCIS considers these applications on a case-by-case basis, and, ultimately, the individual must prove that he or she stands out from others in the field.
A job offer is also required to apply for permanent residency in this category.
