Do I need a fully executed, written contract with my employer for the O-1 Visa petition?

It is not required to have a fully executed, written contract with your employer for the O-Visa petition. 

You can submit a deal memo, group of emails or other writing that meets the requirements of a basic contract

However, the evidence must detail the following:

  • an offer
  • Acceptance
  • the payment or other compensation
  • the position
  • employment address
  • the job duties
  • hours

As long as those are outlined in the petition, the written contract is waived.
