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.
  •   Its been a great journey with Ms.Maumita Rahman and her team so far.
    I'm amazed at her insight in handling immigration cases and grateful for her aggressive approach. The law firm gave me great advice, stayed on top of things, explained everything very clearly to me, and even dealt with me well when I got emotional. She's not only an excellent attorney, she truly cares for the client. I feel that when people are faced with the fear of the unknown and are then given a sense of peace throughout this unfamiliar legal process, then they have found the correct Legal Representation. I definitely found just that in Moumita Rahman and her team and for that I'm grateful.

      We used Moumita's services for my naturalization and for my wife's green card application. Moumita and her staff are extremely attentive and responsive and was able to answer all my questions and lead us through the process. Highly recommend for any immigration matters!

      Moumita and her team are a group of excellent legal professionals yet they make you feel like you are family. She helps my husband and I through our citizenship, green card processes without a single issue! Zero, none! Everything was extremely smooth and fast (which sounds nothing like the immigration process). Her team and Moumita can be reached out at anytime you have questions. They stay on top of your case and always update you with everything.  During our immigration process, we were never left with confusion because Moumita always has answers! All the filings are done with 0 errors. Moumita prepped us carefully for our interviews, how to organize documents, how to communicate in a way that we got approved on the spot! Immigration can be exhausting and frustrating, but when you have someone like Moumita and her team, it's easy breezy! I could not be more happier when she is my lawyer/advisor and her team treats me like part of the family.  I highly recommend you reach out to the firm if you are looking for someone that will help make your immigration processes easier and more importantly SUCCESSFUL!

  •   My wife and I had a really positive experience with Moumita. Everyone knows immigration is a bit of a black box where you're often just sitting, waiting anxiously for the next step and it is really helpful to have someone by your side who has been there / done that several times before.

    Moumita is extremely experienced and knowledgeable. Most importantly, what we appreciated with her was that she is a straight-shooter and does not overpromise / set the wrong expectations. She will give you the most realistic sense of expectations from the process so you can make decisions accordingly and there are no unexpected "surprises".

    In particular, when embassies around the world closed during COVID, Moumita was very helpful in guiding us and even helped us put together a request to expedite due to health-related reasons which was the reason my wife was able to immigrate in the middle of a pandemic when immigration was on pause. It felt like we pulled off a miracle, and Moumita was central to it all.

    Another point I would make is, I chose Moumita based on Yelp reviews of several lawyers. She stood out. This was about 3 years ago. Many times businesses don't maintain customer service quality as they expand and grow but judging from all the latest Yelp reviews (and my own personal experience), it is clear that Moumita and her team have kept up their standards.

    I would highly recommend Moumita to anyone reading this.

      Moumita is hands down the BEST immigration lawyer out there. We had a extremely difficult immigration case in our family and have searched around for a good lawyer and she was the ONLY one that had a solution for us. Other lawyers also wanted a big amount of money up front and we have heard horror stories of other lawyers disappearing or handle everything slowly after getting money from you. Moumita was the total opposite. She charged a very reasonable fee and she and her team handled everything beautifully. All our questions and concerns were addressed in a timely manner. Even tho our case dragged on for a while, Moumita and her team always addressed our questions and concerns right away and did everything very efficiently.

    Other lawyers out there are practicing for the money, Moumita is a lawyer with heart, empathy and sympathy.

    We are all so very thankful for Moumita and I would HIGHLY recommend her! If you need a immigration lawyer, Moumita is the best one out there!

    thumb Lily T.

      Moumita and her Team are top-notch. They helped us get our green card applications approved in a record time. It has been truly, a pleasant experience working with their office. The entire Team was particularly responsive, accurate in preparing the applications, and diligent throughout the entire process. Moumita is empathic, detail-oriented, and takes the time to personally and immediately follow-up on any aspect of the filing.
