P1 Visa may help your athlete or entertainment team to get global exposure

P1 is a type of Visa where members of an athlete or entertainment groups come to the US. The athlete or entertainment group must be internationally recognized.

Sometimes it suffices if the group is nationally recognized when it scores excellence in its own discipline, but has been unknown due to the lack of media exposure or as a consequence of geographic limitation.

At least 75% of the embers must have been performing together for 1 year. P1 holders could study part time, get paid for performance, compete for a prize or work for various employers.

Each employer should file a separate petition. P1 Visa program may help your team to get international exposures. Contact a lawyer for more details.

Self-petitions in Employment Based Immigrant Visas

There are few types of immigrant visas where an applicant is the Self -Petitioner of his own employment Visa.

NIW (National Interest Waiver) may be the preferred choice when petitioner is a young researcher with noticeable scientific qualifications & impressive research achievements.

Because each research category & scientific field is different, applying the exact same criteria in investigation of an individual’s qualification may be erroneous, although, USCIS uses certain standards to assess the eligibility.

When assessing an NIW candidate, its important to know the applicant’s background accurately. Publications, citations & peer reviews are important, but not always outcome determinative. To learn more contact a qualified lawyer.

President Donald Trump’s Election & US Immigration

After the historical election of the US presidency won by a businessman, Mr. Donald Trump, a lot of questions have been directed towards immigration matters. The truth of the matter is, America has voted for legal immigration, less procedural complexity, more expedited process, less regulations & improvement of international trades–beneficiary to America.

America is a nation of immigrants who have chosen to migrate, work hard, build a new life & be an important part of the America’s cultural, socioeconomic & political legacy.

We should work hard towards the goals that 1)all US visas specially Treaty Visas (E2 & E1), Investment Visas (Eb5)& Work Visas get a fresh start 2)  immigration process gets expedited & 3)work visa’s be fully tailored to the overwhelming demand of the US market.

America, after all is a land of opportunities & president-elect himself is a validation to that.

Self-Petitions of Employment-Based Green Cards

Self-petitioning an employment file is a great way to apply for a green card; however the petitioner must qualify.

Applicant/petitioner must show through evidence that waiving required labor certificate is beneficial to the national interest of America.

Outstanding researchers & professors, extra ordinary abilities & candidates for national interest waivers are among those who may successfully get their green cards without having an employer-sponsor.

The burden of proof is on the applicant. He must show through convincing evidence why he would meet the criteria.

A history of his past experience, recommendation letters from peers, review letters from industry experts, publications, a current job offer may all be used to show the importance of one’s related field & the impact of his work on the field.

One may qualify to apply for multiple ways of receiving a green card; consulting a legal expert is the key to success.
