As compared with other US visas, O1 has many important advantages. First of all, unlike H-1B, obtaining of the O-1 visa does not depend on the season or a chance. The O-1 visa is meant to be issued to a particularly outstanding professional and helps to negotiate a higher salary. At the same time, preparation of a package of documents and adaptation of the applicant’s profile to this type of visa’s requirements takes on average at least 200 hours, or 3 to 6 months.
You are invited to check the information on the O-1 visa at the US Government website at https://www.uscis.gov.
Other advantages of the О-1 visa:
Our experts will screen your profile and determine your strengths and weaknesses, develop a strategy for the preparation of documents and adapting your profile to the requirements of an O-1 visa.
We provide consultations on the collection of documents, select a petitioner and pay lawyers’ fees for filing an O-1 case with the US Immigration Service. The entire cycle can take 3 to 9 months depending on the profile and involvement of a candidate.
We will prepare you for a job interview in terms of both technical and behavioral skills. Our specialists will adapt your CV, respond to job positions and arrange for a job interview for you. You will need to most diligently prepare for the interview together with our mentors. As soon as you develop the required skills, we will start sending you job vacancies specifically tailored to you. On average, we arrange for 20 to 30 interviews. With each passed interview, you will be feeling more and more confident, which would directly impact your salary expectations.
We will help you write a cover letter, negotiate a salary and get an offer. Thanks to our business connections, we are able to offer job positions with an upper-middle salary level. We are aware of the salary ceilings and know how to get the best offers, so we will help you handle it.

Building a career in the USA is not easy, even if you have all the necessary knowledge and experience.
• It is easier for companies to hire a local resident than consider hiring even the most talented foreigner: the US visa system is very complicated and time-consuming, so many employers are simply not willing to start the process;
• Companies specializing in visa support offer lower salaries that are 50 to 70% below the market level and suggest obtaining the L1 visa that would not allow to change the employer;
• Passing a job interview with top companies offering relocation to the US may take several years because hiring an employee from a foreign country is difficult for employers due a maze of obstacles at the market;
• Unfortunately, those who has recently moved to the USA are offered modest salaries for quite a long time.

The USA has its own modern taxation system. The amount of taxes will depend on certain factors such as income level, household composition, state and city of residence, etc. To get an estimate of future tax payments, we recommend using a tax calculator.For instance, in California (the state with the highest taxes) a family of 2 people would have to pay 30.5% of income tax on an annual income of $350K, while a single taxpayer would have to pay 39% of income tax.
The level of the English language will not be examined when applying for the O1 visa. It is not about knowing the language, it is about how well you understand the questions and can answer them in English.

If you cannot speak fluently at the moment, we will help you find your weaknesses preventing to successfully pass a job interview and will provide recommendations on what you need to do. You will have enough time to upgrade your language level before getting a visa.
Just like elsewhere in the world, some companies were forced to lay off employees (Lyft, Uber, AirBnb), however, those were immediately hired by other top companies whose businesses continued to grow during the pandemic.

However, IT specialists are still needed on the market, and the demand for them has even grown in certain areas.
