    As I work more and of these cases I’m constantly tracking what qualities trigger fast US Immigration approvals and what qualities may trigger an approval but that approval may be harder come by.

    If you have not done so already please study carefully my new and improved O1 visa vs. EB1 green card guide. This guide is proving to be highly effective in helping clients assess their potential for these visas.

    If you have been nominated or won any professional award this will boost your case tremendously. It’s hard for US Immigration to say that you did not deserve the win or nomination.

    If you have not been nominated or won any professional award seriously and tenaciously see what competitions are out there where your work can be entered. I had a client work with me and this was precisely the advice I gave him. Three months later the client, who had been in the film business for 20 years and had never entered a competition before came back to be with a clutch of 1st and second prizes. It completely transformed his case.

    Press publicity is also highly favored by US Immigration. It’s extremely important in certain client cases that they get their names splashed in the press a half a dozen times relating to their work. The article must directly reference you by name and your work.  Hard copy press coverage (as opposed to web press coverage) really does get Immigration’s attention because you had earn your spot in the magazine. If you do not have any press coverage then get some, if you don’t know how then seriously think about hiring a publicist, I’m not joking. Just as you would hire a lawyer to write a contract to make sure a particular deal was set up correctly, just as you would hire me to ensure that your immigration was taken care of, why not hire a publicist to help you get the right press coverage to swing your case in the right direction. I did a quick Google for Publicists in the UK with ties to the Entertainment world and quickly found – http://www.4rfv.co.uk/directory/236×0/Publicists.htm

    Winning and O1 visa or an EB1 green card especially can be a life changing event, if your career future is that important you may need to take some time to really focus on building up your profile. Talk to me, I’ll assess your case and point you in the right direction. I may found that you’re profile is sufficient to make a great O1 visa or green card application or I may find that with a few months work we could polish up your profile to the point where your case could be made ready.

    It’s really important that to consult first, act after, this will enable you to become very active in precisely the most valuable way. Better to be laser guided than be a random lightening bolt of energy. I’ll make sure that together we’ll be able to put together the most precise and persuasive case and when we win, we’ll be able to celebrate your success.
