A: According to CIS regulations, if you receive a major internationally recognized award, such as a Nobel Prize, you will automatically qualify for an EB-1A visa. Other awards may also qualify if you can document that the award is in the same class as a Nobel Prize. Since very few individuals receive this type of award, alternative evidence of EB-1A classification based on at least three of the types of evidence outlined below, is permitted:

  1. Receipt of lesser nationally or internationally recognized prizes or awards for excellence;
  2. Membership in associations in the field which demand outstanding achievement of their members;
  3. Published material about the alien in professional or major trade publications or other major media;
  4. Evidence that the alien has judged the work of others, either individually or on a panel;
  5. Evidence of the alien's original scientific, scholarly, artistic, athletic, or business-related contributions of major significance to the field;
  6. Evidence of the alien's authorship of scholarly articles in professional or major trade publications or other major media;
  7. Evidence that the alien's work has been displayed at artistic exhibitions or showcases;
  8. Performance of a leading or critical role in distinguished organizations;
  9. Evidence that the alien commands a high salary or other significantly high remuneration in relation to others in the field;
  10. Evidence of commercial successes in the performing arts;
  11. Other comparable evidence.
