Whom We Serve: Artists
Artists bring the beauty and creativity that make our lives richer and more meaningful. We are delighted to help our clients in the artistic community to realize their dreams of visiting or staying in the United States.
We have experience in successfully helping professionals practicing many forms of art: instrumental music, dance, opera, journalism, filmmaking, architecture, culinary arts, etc. We provide careful, personalized guidance and assistance in collecting extensive evidence supporting claims of extraordinary ability, and then prepare a detailed support letter summarizing and explaining the nature the client’s achievements and accolades for USCIS. Whether you are applying for O1B visa or permanent residence, we will help you every step of the way.
If you are an impresario(a), an agent or a venue manager, we can assist you with obtaining O and P visas for artists coming to the U.S. for a performance, tour or other limited time engagement.
Individual artists usually need an O1B petition. Internationally recognized foreign groups, as well as foreign artists coming to join world-renowned U.S.-based groups, might be eligible for P1B visas. Culturally unique artists and performers can apply for P3 visas.
For more detailed information about temporary visas for musicians, please read my interview with Jennifer Newman Sharpe, Esq. “A Musician’s Top 5 U.S. Immigration Questions Answered.”
For clients who are outside of the U.S., we can arrange consultations via electronic media such as Skype or Google Hangout.
