O-2 Visa – The Entourage Visa
O-2 Visa – The Entourage Visa
Welcome to our O-2 Visa Video Presentation
Many of our O-1 visa clients need to bring with them a team of support staff to help them with all key areas of their enterprise. For example, a performing artist may have to bring their session musicians, sound, lighting and mixing crew and so forth, in order to be able to put on their show.
Actors may want their manager, personal assistant, hair and make up stylist to travel with them. The overall key to determine whether an O-2 visa candidate application will be successful is to make sure that they can be framed as an essential member of the production team. We have extensive experience in this area, so having a consultation with us should enable us to make a good assessment.
If the applications are being filed together, an O-1 visa holder or candidate must sponsor all O-2 visa candidates. It’s quite possible for an O-1 visa holder to lose their current O-2 and thus decide to sponsor a replacement. Therefore, O-1 visa holders can add to their entourage as required.
Please note, that many O-1 visa holders have the opportunity to qualify for the EB1 green card. If the O-1 visa holder applies for an EB1 green card and is successful, this will terminate their eligibility to continue to sponsor their O-2 visa holders, because the O-1 visa is a temporary visa, as are the O-2 visas. Thus if the O-1 visa holder were to secure a green card and become a permanent resident, US Immigration doesn’t want O-2 visa holders also acquiring permanent status. This is because that would not be fair, since O-2 visa holders are not required to show that they have an extraordinary ability, whereas O-1 visa holders do.
Ok – if you know of any O-1 visa holder that could really use your help as an O-2, and is prepared to support an application, then please contact us so we can explore this opportunity with you. Please email or call us for a free consultation and we can discuss your case and get the ball rolling.
