1h 2m

Created on September 17, 2019





In the arena of Sports and Entertainment immigration practice, a variety of visa classifications can be utilized. The most exclusive of those classifications is the O, intended for individuals of extraordinary ability. In this update to his original course, attorney Michael Cataliotti, 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.

While there are a wide-range of disciplines to which the O-visa is applicable, due to the degree of scrutiny applied to O-visa petitions by USCIS, the immigration practitioner should be well aware of the hurdles in place to a successful outcome of the petition.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize the nature of the O-visa and when it may be utilized
  2. Break down the parties to every petition
  3. Identify the most common potential-client disciplines the practitioner may encounter
  4. Address the fundamental elements of each petition and what makes the average petition stronger
