Companies: Work Visas


Recommended Posts

Each company handles the working visa process differently. One must have a sponsoring company to obtain the visa however that does not necessarily mean the company will actually pay the cost of obtaining the visa, which can be quite costly.


The requirements for obtaining an O-1 visa, the visa for artists with extraordinary abilities is very difficult to obtain. It must be proven that the dancer is superior to all other American candidates which is not something that is easily documented. This generally requires a few prizes at international and national competitions as well.


If you are in the US, plan to attend the auditions however recognize that your opportunities may be limited due to your visa status.
