Visas for Athletes and Entertainers
There are several different types of United States visas available for athletes, entertainers, and other professionals who can claim that their level of accomplishment is “internationally recognized” or “extraordinary”.
As is with any visa application process, showing that you actually possess those qualifications is a complicated endeavor that requires precise knowledge of the criteria demanded by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service, properly drafted documentation that supports your criteria, recommendations from experts in your area of expertise and much more.
Here at ChaseLawyersSM we have helped musicians, boxers, martial arts practitioners, entertainers and many professionals from other walks of life to:
- Identify the type of visa fit for their circumstances, experience, connections and aspirations.
- Emphasize their strengths and shed light on their accomplishments.
- Select the right people in their circle to write recommendation letters.
- Locate fellow industry professionals in the US that can vouch for their qualifications.
- Prepare a portfolio of media mentions, awards and trophies that make them stand out.
- Figure out which ones of the many things you have done in their life fit into the visa requirements, and which ones don’t.
