Recommendation Letters

Both the O-1 Visa and the EB-1A Green Card are highly restrictive immigration applications only granted to those who can demonstrate prominence and excellence in their respective fields of endeavor. This can be demonstrated by providing evidence and supporting letters, also known as recommendation letters.

Who will sign the letters?

The letters are to be signed by key individuals who are familiar with your endeavors and contributions, and also have the authority to speak with credibility about your work and its impact on the industry. These individuals must also demonstrate specific relevance in the field. The case is even stronger if they are recognized experts with a record of prominence.

What are the different types of letters?

  • Expert Opinion

    An Expert Opinion letter is a highly customized evaluation, written by an expert in the relevant field. The purpose of this letter is to help support the candidate by highlighting the innovativeness and significant impact of their contributions to the field.

  • Advisory Opinion

    One of the formal requirements for an O-1 visa petition is a written Advisory Opinion letter from the American-based company that will support the candidate’s employment in the U.S. For this, a representative of a U.S. based company that is engaged in the relevant field of endeavor is needed.

  • Letter of Confirmation

    A Letter of Confirmation is one type of supporting documentation to evidence the candidate’s engagement or role in the indicated organization or event. The letter describes the candidate’s role and how their expertise contributed to the event or organization. All letters must be meticulously prepared, as a compelling letter can significantly affect the evaluation of the candidate’s case.

How many letters are needed?

The USCIS generally requires four or five letters to be filed, in order to establish that the candidate is indeed one of the small percentage of people who have risen to the very top of the field of endeavor.

These letters will be a fundamental piece of an O-1 or EB-1A petition. Their quality may positively or negatively impact the results of the application, depending on how well-written and representative of the candidate’s achievements they are.
