EB1 Green Cards for Indian Dancers Three Part Special Edition

EB1 Green Cards for Indian Dancers 2017

Part 1Part 2  – Part 3

The ancient Indian dance forms of Kuchipudi, Kathak, and Bharatanatyam (and many others) tell stories through dance movements. The dancers who specialize in this art are often trained from a very young age and become beloved superstars in both India and the United States, performing at events that often host viewers in the thousands. Though many women (and a few men!) learn these dance forms and pursue them as a hobby, there are a select few performing at an elite level, and  these individuals may be eligible for the EB1 Green Card as “Aliens of Extraordinary Ability”, and  many of them have no idea such an opportunity even exists.

The Law Offices of Chris M. Ingram takes pride in developing a deep understanding of the importance of these dances at a cultural level, as well as how many talented dancers and choreographers are creating fusions between the ancient and the modern, thus reaching broader audiences. We work with dancers/performers on a regular basis and we are committed to being successful in securing EB1 Green Cards for as many as possible. Whilst US Immigration Officers may be, at first, unfamiliar with these and other Indian dance forms, by working closely with our clients we are often able to educate them and persuade them that these candidates are worthy of the EB1 Green Card.

How to Get Your EB1 Green Card Approved

Because we are specialists in this area we can constantly sending cases to US Immigration for adjudication. Whilst many of our case are approved without a hitch some, according to USCIS require more work. What USCIS is doing is telling is precisely what they need to keep saying yes! Therefore we want to share this insight with you so you know what you will need to prepare in order for USCIS to say yes on your case.

#1 Priority – Get Great Published Material About Yourself

Published Materials include being featured or written about in newspapers and magazines or media outlets such as online publications that have a substantial following. USCIS is really placing a lot of value on our clients who have substantial press and here is why. High profile magazines will only showcase the best of the best, so if you’re in one of those magazines USCIS will know its 100% down to your talent and merit and nothing else.

How Many Published Articles Do I Need?

You should aim to get at least three published articles in three different publications. You can have more than three articles but we’re looking for a magazine range of at least three leading publications.

How Do I know if the Magazine is a Major Publication?

USCIS will look at the hard copy circulation figures of your chosen publication and that of at least two comparable publications. We have had success with clients who were featured in the following publications: –

Kumudham Magazine – Virakesari Online – The Hindu
The New Indian Express – The Times of India

 What About Publications from Outside India?

We have clients who have performed all over the world and gotten great press, so yes press from other countries is acceptable providing the publication is a major press outlet. I guess what we are looking to avoid are publications in the tens of thousands, we really want the publications that have circulations in the hundreds of thousands.

Summary on Published Material for EB1 Green Card Cases

If you do not have the kind of published material we’re talking about here then start thinking about how you can put  a plan together to develop this caliber of published material. Even if it will take you months to accomplish it’s ok, the goal is to win your EB1 Green Card case first time and once we’ve won your green card will be for life, so why rush it.    USCIS is telling us very loud and clear that when they see high caliber published material as outlined above they are looking to say yes to this case.
