Hilda Baci Can Now Apply For An O-1 Visa With Her Guinness World Record

I read on Twitter today that Hilda Baci can now apply for an O-1 Visa in recognition of her achievement in setting a new Guinness World Record.

I don’t know if that’s 100% accurate but it made me do a quick research into what the O-1 Visa is all about. What I found blew my mind! 🤯

So what is this visa?

The O-1 visa allows people with extraordinary abilities to work in the U.S. for a temporary time. It is open to people who are top of their field in the arts, sciences, education, business, or sports, and they are interested in traveling to the United States for work. People who win awards like Grammy, Oscars and co are eligible for this kind of visa.

But to get the O-1 visa, you must prove your extraordinary ability in some way. And I believe that’s what Hilda has done with the Guinness World Record achievement. The certificate is all the proof she needs.

What makes this visa special?

The O-1 visa comes with many advantages. One benefit is you can apply for an O-1 visa and a green card at the same time. So if you hope to settle permanently in the United States in the future, an O-1 visa won’t affect your plans.

– The process is fairly quick
– You don’t need to keep a foreign residence
– You don’t have to show intent to return to your home country
– You can keep “dual intent” with an application for permanent residency

Here is the best part!

As long as your O-1 visa is valid:
– You can work in the U.S. in your visa-related field
– You can travel freely in and out of the U.S.
– Your assistants can join you with O-2 visas
– Your spouse and family can join you with O-3 visas
– Your children or other dependents can go to school

The O-1 visa lasts for three years and is open to unlimited extensions as long as your work continues. Each extension renews your visa for another year.

For a long time I have wondered what else is special about GWR beyond getting recognized in the annual book. If GWR truly makes this visa possible, then it is truly special to set records! 😂

The access you get with that global recognition beyond the shores of your country is truly golden. It opens you to a world of opportunities. 👏

Congratulations once again to Hilda Baci. 🎉 🍾
