New Jersey O-2 Visa Lawyer

Immigration Assistance for Artist and Athletic Staff

When an artist or athlete is extremely gifted and has reached a level of expertise or skill that makes them rise to the top of their field, they may be able to request an O-2 Artist or athlete visa for temporary visits to the United States for an event or performance. The achievements of these individuals require extensive documentation that is best handled by a New Jersey immigration attorney.

Certain individuals that qualify for O-2 visas include:

  • Scientists
  • Educators
  • Business Persons
  • Athletes
  • Entertainers
  • Artists

The very rigorous qualifications for this work visa are different for each of the above categories of persons. While scientists, educators, business persons and athletes must show specific documentation such as awards for excellence in their field, published material, scientific or business contributions of major significance, as well as other criteria, artists and entertainers have other requirements. For artists and entertainers, they must have starred in major productions, command a high salary, have had major commercial success and additional other requirements.

As can be seen, qualifying for this type of visa is not easily accomplished without extensive and thorough documentation. In order to successfully obtain such a visa, you need a highly qualified immigration lawyer who knows the ins and out of federal immigration laws and can navigate through their complex requirements. At The Law Offices of Lloyd E. Bennett, Esq., P.C., we can help you prepare and document your application in a timely manner so as to successfully obtain an O-2 visa for yourself and your staff.
