In this episode of Immigration Law for Tech Startups, I proudly unveil the details of Alcorn Immigration Law’s new Extraordinary Ability Bootcamp, an online course.
In my previous “Extraordinary Ability Bootcamp” podcast episode, I discussed the O-1A nonimmigrant visa for extraordinary ability, the EB-1A extraordinary ability green card, and the EB-2 NIW (National Interest Waiver for exceptional ability) green card.
The O-1A, EB-1A, and EB-2 NIW are great for startup founders and entrepreneurs, tech and biotech talent, researchers and scientists, business professionals and educators, and of course, the companies who sponsor these individuals. What’s more, the EB-1A and EB-2 NIW green cards don’t require a company sponsor, which means individuals can file their own petition for these green cards.
The Extraordinary Ability Bootcamp will take a deep dive into these visa and green card categories—and what it takes to file a successful petition in one of these categories. A 15-module online course, the Extraordinary Ability Bootcamp consists of videos and supplemental material designed to give you the tools to assess whether you currently qualify for any of these extraordinary ability categories—or what you need to do to get there—as well as best practices. This course is the culmination of synthesizing the Alcorn team’s decades of experience in immigration law, the lessons learned from the thousands of successful O-1A, EB-1A, and EB-2 NIW cases, and our interactions with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officers.
