NYC Entertainment Immigration Law Attorney Explains O-1 Artist Visas, Queens, New York

International entertainers who wish to perform for audiences in the United States require special artist visa permissions for themselves and members of their act. Neal Richardson Datta, one of New York City's entertainment immigration law firms, is here to explain the O-1 visa, reserved for top performers and specialists in their fields.

To qualify for an O-1 visa, you must possess extraordinary ability or achievement as demonstrated by a reputation for excellence above and beyond what would normally be encountered in your industry. This reputation can be proven with newspaper and magazine articles, prestigious awards, or academic studies (if your work is centered around an ethnic art form that many in the United States may not have encountered).

The United States government also offers O-1B visas for highly accomplished professionals who are not artists or entertainers, such as scientists, academics, or internationally famous athletes. Other visas are available for support staff, such as backup singers, dancers, and other integral members of your team with skills that are not already available in the U.S.

Proving your eligibility for the O-1 visa is a long, complex process with a great deal of ambiguity, which is where the services of a respected immigration attorney can help. The dedicated legal team at Neal Richardson Datta has a record of consistent success helping artists and other extraordinary individuals from around the world attain the visas they need to perform, speak, or compete in the United States.
