Three O-Visa Misconceptions ✨ ————————————————————————
1) Only Artists Qualify: O-Visas apply to artists, however, the category of "artist" extends to various industries, such as science, education, business and athletics.
2) Only Celebrities Qualify: While critical acclaim strengthens your case for approval, being "famous" is by no means a requirement. Being well-recognized in your specific field and expertise demonstrates your extraordinary ability, not fame.
3) Only those willing to permanently move to the United States qualify: This is not true. An O-Visa is a nonimmigrant visa, which means you can travel in and out of the United States. If you wish to permanently move to the States, you have the option to apply for a green card. Learn more at #ImmigrationMatters
