Securing EB-1 Visa for an Uncommon Performer
Classification as an Individual of Extraordinary Ability in the Arts was sought by a virtuoso of a musical instrument uncommon in the United States.
Despite a lack of widespread cultural familiarity with this performance genre, through extensive investigation and documentation of performance history, the EB-1 attorney team secured an EB-1 Visa by emphasizing the client’s original compositional and performance contributions of major significance using this chosen instrument, numerous competitive national and international awards and accolades, extensive track record of national and international performances in distinguished venues and before notable audiences, regular judging of the work of fellow musicians and professionals, the extensive discussion of accomplishments in national media outlets, the commercial success of concerts and recording sales, and professional service in critical roles instructing, training, and leading bands and musical groups representing distinguished universities, cultural regions, and national governments in major competitions. Through the diligent documentation of our client’s impressive creative and commercial success, this musician is now happily performing pursuant to permanent resident status.
About the EB-1 Visa
Individuals that demonstrate extraordinary abilities or qualifying managerial skills in their current field can self-petition through the employment-based immigration category. This is eligible for those who have evidence of outstanding accomplishments in their respective field. This option is an immigrant visa and is a path to a green card.
