O Visa Lawyer in Richmond

Helping Clients in Virginia Obtain the Right Visa

The O visa is a non-immigrant temporary worker visa granted an alien "who possesses extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, or who has a demonstrated record of extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or television industry and has been recognized nationally or internationally for those achievements." There are other derivatives of the O visa as well. The O-1A is for individuals with an extraordinary ability in the sciences, education, business, or athletics (not including the arts, motion pictures or television industry), and the O-1B, is for those aliens with an extraordinary ability in the arts or extraordinary achievement in motion picture or television industry.

Athlete and Artist Visa

The O-2 visa is for those individuals who will accompany an O-1, artist or athlete, to assist in a specific event or performance, and the O-3 is reserved for those who are the spouse or children of O-1s and O-2s. As with other petitions filed with USCIS, the requirements and filing procedures are stringent and ever-changing.
