Within Sports and Entertainment Immigration, there exist a variety of visa classifications that can be utilized. The most exclusive of those classifications is the O, intended for individuals of extraordinary ability. Because of the wide-range of disciplines to which it is applicable, it should exist in the back of the practitioner’s mind as being a possible visa for an international client. However, due to the degree of scrutiny applied to O-visa petitions by USCIS, the practitioner should also be well aware of the hurdles in place to a successful outcome of the petition. 


In this course, Michael Cataliotti, a New York City-based business immigration and entertainment attorney, provides an overview of the O-visa from the parties involved with each petition and the different sub-categories to the necessary elements for a successful adjudication.


Learning Objectives:

I.    Identify the nature of the O-visa and when it may be utilized

II.   Review the parties to every petition and some of the most common potential-client disciplines the practitioner may encounter

III.  Ascertain the fundamental elements of each petition and what makes the average petition stronger
