Alien of extraordinary ability is an alien classification by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. The United States may grant a priority visa to an alien who can demonstrate "extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics" or through some other extraordinary career achievements.

The immigrant version of the classification (EB-1A), which grants permanent residency, additionally requires the alien to demonstrate "sustained national or international acclaim", "achievements recognized by others in the field of expertise", and "a level of expertise indicating that the individual is one of that small percentage who has risen to the very top of the field of endeavor". It has the important advantage that the petitioner can self-sponsor rather than relying on an employer sponsor. Depending on the country of origin, this category may also allow one to bypass waiting lists for many years.

It is known colloquially as a "genius visa"[1]
