Talent-based Visas

For exceptionally talented individuals, there are several Talent-based Visa options—namely, the EB1, O and P visas—available for temporary and permanent entry into the United States.

These visas are available to applicants in a wide area of fields including the arts, athletics, sciences, business and education. The principal advantage of these visas is that they do not require a Labor Certification for approval. However, the application process is still challenging and applicants must submit evidence demonstrating that they are amongst the very best in their field.

Immigrant Options:

EB-1 Visa

The Basic Features: The EB-1 visa is the highest preference employment-based petition for permanent residency in the United States and is targeted towards individuals who are amongst the most successful in their fields within the fields of education, sciences, arts, business, or sports. Unlike all the other employment-based applicants for permanent residency, the EB-1a visa does not require an offer of employment; instead, the applicant is granted permanent residency solely based on his professional ability.

Non-Immigrant Options:

O Visa

The application procedure for the EB-1 visa is complex and requires a considerable amount of documentation. It is critical to have an attorney who is experienced and thorough in complying with the complicated requirements of the petition process. At Sethi & Mazaheri, our firm will advise you of the different documentation needed for the EB-1 visa and anticipate potential barriers to entry in order to make sure that your initial application has the maximum chance for favorable action.

P Visa

Here is a brief description of the main features of P visa: Time: The P Visa is specifically for individuals who are entering the country to perform at a specific event, tour, or competition. Therefore, a P-visa holder’s admission is generally for the duration of the event, tour or competition, for a period of up to one year. However, the initial period of stay for an athlete can be up to five years. Extensions are available for this type of visa. Area of Expertise: Arts, Entertainment, Athletics.
