3 Pieces of Evidence That Can Help You Get an Artist Visa, Queens, New York

An artist visa allows international artists to live and work in the United States for a specific period of time. It is especially beneficial for artists who are unsure whether they want to live and work in the country for the long-term, but are looking to maintain a short-term commitment in the meantime. Neal Richardson Datta, Attorney at Law, P.C., is a New York City-based entertainment immigration lawyer dedicated to helping his clients bring their talents to American audiences.

Here, attorney Datta discusses three pieces of evidence that can help you obtain an artist visa:

  • Consultations: In entertainment immigration, a consultation is a written declaration from an American organization that states you are an artist of extraordinary ability. The "extraordinary ability" description is crucial to getting your artist visa. This consultation establishes you as someone with remarkable, unique talents that could benefit the culture of America in significant ways.

This contract demonstrates your commitment to working in the United States and the seriousness of your abilities. Neal Richardson Datta, Attorney at Law, P.C., works with clients who have written and/or oral contracts with American organizations.
  • Schedules: Artists often have itineraries in conjunction with their contracts. For instance, a musician may have tour dates or scheduled recording sessions. A visual artist may have galleries booked to showcase their work. An actor may have a shooting schedule for a film or television show. Schedules like these can be helpful in obtaining an artist visa.
