Immigration Issues in the Art World

1h 2m

Created on April 29, 2019





While immigration has been a hot topic for the last several years, the discussion around business immigration has been sporadic and focused on "tech" jobs or those under H-1B. There is, however, an even more nuanced subsection of business immigration that is so rarely touched upon: arts and entertainment immigration.

In this program, attorney Michael Cataliotti introduces you to U.S. immigration policy and practices for international artists, entertainers, and entrepreneurs who seek to enter the United States. Beginning by presenting an overview of arts and entertainment immigration, Michael then transitions into the most frequently utilized non-immigrant visa classifications, ultimately taking each one up individually. Of course, a visa must be appropriate for both the petitioner and beneficiary, and so the type of clients the practitioner can expect to encounter is discussed, as well as considerations unique to certain industries the practitioner may encounter. This course will also provide tips and considerations for both private practitioners and in-house counsel, as well as suggestions for governmental reviewers, adjudicators, and auditors.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify frequently utilized non-immigrant visa classifications for artists and entertainers
  2. Address issues unique to the arts and entertainment industries
  3. Discuss best practices for immigration practitioners handling clients with these special consideration
