We recently received an O-1 approval for a Turkish National who is an Art Director of extraordinary ability in film and television. It was approved without a request for additional evidence.

Extraordinary ability for artists who work in film and television have a slightly higher evidentiary standard, called extraordinary achievement, than other O-1 artists whose work must meet the lower legal standard of distinction. Artists in film and television also must submit two advisory opinions, one from a labor union and another from a management organization, rather than one advisory opinion.
