Artist and Talent Based Visas

There are many options available for persons looking to get a visa or a green card in the U.S. based on their artistic abilities and talent! Read more below:

  •  O-1 Visa
    The O-1 is a temporary work visa for “aliens of extraordinary ability.” This visa category is available to accomplished persons who work in the arts (O-1B), in the sciences, business, education and athletics (O-1A), or in motion pictures and television (O-1B).
  • EB-1 Green Card
    EB-1 Green Cards are for people who can demonstrate that they have risen to the very top of their field of endeavor. They must demonstrate evidence of sustained national or international acclaim, and that they will continue to work in that field in the U.S. and requires either a major, internationally recognized award (such as a Nobel Prize or Academy Award), or at least three other types of evidence of accomplishments and renown. This evidence can include awards of lesser national or international prominence, press coverage about the foreign worker, scholarly publications authored by the foreign worker, and other types of documents, depending on relevance to the field and how the foreign worker established his or her professional renown.
  • EB-2 National Interest Waiver Green Card
    The National Interest Waiver is for either advanced degree professionals or persons of exceptional ability. The application must describe a proposed endeavor that has substantial merit and is of national importance, and show that the foreign national is well-positioned to advance that endeavor, and show that, on balance, it would be beneficial to waive the requirements of labor certification and a full-time job offer. The NIW category does not require evidence of personal renown or broad name recognition like the extraordinary ability or outstanding researcher categories but does require proof of the widespread impact of the individual’s work. Applicants in this category may self-sponsor.
  • EB-2 Advanced Degree Professionals
    This EB-2 category is for people who have been offered a permanent, full-time job by a U.S. employer, where the job requires an advanced degree, such as a Master’s degree or Ph.D., and where the foreign worker has the required degree or its equivalent at the time the employer files for labor certification. This category requires an employer-sponsor.
  • EB-3 Visas
    EB-3 Visas are for people who have been offered a permanent, full-time job by a U.S. employer. Where the job requires at least a Bachelor’s and the worker possesses a four-year degree or its academic equivalent, the classification is Professional Worker. Where the job requires at least two years of related work experience, or an Associate’s degree and at least one year of post-degree work experience, the classification is a Skilled Worker. Where the job requires a total of one year or less of related work experience or training, the classification is Other Worker.
  •   I can't say enough on Yelp about the quality of work that Moumita provides. She has become more than just our lawyer in the past few years we have worked with her. She is dedicated and extremely well informed. She keeps herself open so if you need to reach her she's easily accessible. Moumita is definitely ready to dedicate all she has to win your case and help you. She has given me her complete attention whenever it was needed and I'm happy that I went with my initial recommendation of Moumita and I won't ever have to look for any other lawyer.

      Moumita helped me with my legal options pertaining to my immigration status. Working with her was such wonderful experience as she was very knowledgeable, supportive, professional and effective. She took her time to explain the process and made sure I understood what choices I had and how to best achieve the optimal outcome; going out of her way to make sure that things was as smooth and cost effective as possible for her client. Can highly recommend her to future clients!

      Having worked with Attorney Rahman for several months, I can genuinely say that it was a wonderful experience. I learned a great deal from her and am now able to apply this new knowledge going forward. She was always very patient and professional to both employee and client alike. One of the many reasons clients sought her out was based on her in-depth knowledge of immigration, as well as bankruptcy law.  But that was not all - she is highly referred and recommended!  On many an occasion, while handling firm calls, there was always someone on the other end with great things to say. If it was a potential client, either they were referred by a friend who had a successful experience with Attorney Rahman - or - they had read many of her 5 star reviews and really wanted her to work on their case. If it was an existing client, there was always a word of praise about the excellent work she was doing on their case.  I also had the pleasure of receiving my own share of compliments, primarily due to the fact that Attorney Rahman never kept a client waiting, and I carried out the same service as part of the firm culture. It was refreshing to work with Attorney Rahman. She clearly reflected to her clients - new and existing - that respect was high on her list. Her genuine passion for every case she takes on and her attention, and responsiveness to each, really makes her very rare, especially in the fields of immigration and bankruptcy law. Without a doubt, I would recommend her and know that, from working experience with her, she is honest, hardworking and will give your case the attention it needs for a successful outcome.

  •   We contacted Moumita on the recommendation of a friend when my wife and I got married and needed to adjust her status.  Moumita has gone above and beyond my expectation in regards to accessibility, responsibility and clarity.  She has been friendly and calm through what we worried would be a stressful process, but when she needs to be that sharp talking walking encyclopedia lawyer who knows all the ins and outs of her field, she can turn on a dime and be just that!

      My husband and I consulted with Moumita regarding my green card application. I was very impressed with Moumita's composure and calm. I myself was not very calm during certain parts of the rather stressful process and would send her multiple one off emails with questions that she always responded to very quickly. I really appreciated her guidance through the complex and bureaucratic process. She's also extremely reasonably priced given her expertise and responsiveness.

      My experience with Ms. Moumita Rahman was more then amazing.
    I contacted her regarding my immigration case last minute since my previous lawyer didn't represented me in my best interest.
    From the moment I contacted her and disgussed my situation with her, she made me feel very comfortable due to her incredible knowledge and kindness.
    During the process Ms. Rahman always kept me up to date which made things easy and pleasent.
    I cannot thank Ms Rahman enough for the outstanding work she has done for me.
    I am so glad I chose her to represent me in my rather difficult case.
    She is outstanding in her work and is overall such a wonderful person.  I am greatful to have had her as my lawyer
    I highly recommend Ms. Rahman
