We have experience in successfully helping artists practicing many forms of art: instrumental music, dance, opera, visual arts, graphic design, journalism, filmmaking, architecture, culinary arts, to name a few. Individual artists usually need an O-1B petition to work, perform or otherwise practice their art in the United States. Internationally recognized foreign artistic groups, as well as foreign artists coming to join world-renowned U.S.-based groups, might be eligible for P-1B visas. Culturally unique artists and performers can apply for P-3 visas.
Whether you are applying for an “artist visa” to work or perform here temporarily, or EB-1 “extraordinary ability” permanent residence, we will help you every step of the way. We provide careful, personalized guidance and assistance in collecting evidence of your extraordinary ability, and then prepare a detailed support letter summarizing and explaining the nature of the client’s achievements and accolades for USCIS.
Also, if you are an impresario(a), an agent or a venue manager, we can assist you with obtaining O-1B, P-1B and P-3 visas for artists coming to the U.S. for a performance, tour or other limited time engagement.
