O-1 Visa Known As The "Artist" Visa
Is for foreign talents who want to continue their careers in the U.S.
Usually known as the "Artist" visa, O-1 is actually much more inclusive than you think. If you are accomplished and well-respected in your field, you likely qualify.
An O-1 Visa is designed to allow foreigners at the very top of their field of work in the arts, motion picture, or television industries. If you have a U.S. company who needs to bring someone with extraordinary ability into the United States for work, an O-1 visa is an excellent option.

O-1B Visa Criteria
There are a few criteria that go into preparing your visa case.
If you have received a major award in your field, equivalent of an Oscar for actors, you already meet the criteria and will qualify. If not, don't worry. There is another way. You will have to meet 3 out of the 6 categories below.
Our attorneys can help make sure that all of your documents and evidence are submitted according to the regulations and deadlines.
