How Could I Meet the "Extraordinary Ability" Standard for RFE Resonse of O-1 Visa?

Hi William,

I filed an O-1 petitiion one month ago, soon I received the Request For Evidence from USCIS. The major RFE request is to prove my 
extraordinary ability in science. How could I meet the "extraordinary ability" atandard for O-1 visa application?


In science, education, business, and athletics, the extraordinary ability means “one of the small percentage who have arisen to the very top of the field of endeavor." Foreign nationals working in motion pictures and television must show "a degree of skill and recognition significantly above that ordinarily encountered," a standard that falls somewhere in the middle. The definition at the lowest level says "extraordinary ability in the arts means distinction."

The accomplishments of all types of O-1 beneficiaries must be "recognized in the field through extensive documentation." The subjective nature of standards renders them vulnerable to vague and ill-considered RFEs, NOIDs and unjustified denials. Insufficient training, varied aptitudes of adjudicators, and the absence of consistent guidance from headquarters and oversight by seasoned supervisors contribute to the problem, which starts with an absence of training on the different O-1 standards.

If you get a Request For Evidence (RFE) notice for your O-1 visa application or extension from an USCIS Service Center, it is necessary that you must work hard to provide requested evidence in a short time, and persuade the USCIS adjudicators to approve your case. It
is critical to appropriately and proficiently reply the Request For Evidence. Incorrect response of the RFE will directly result in your O-1 visa application or extension rejection.
