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.
