Visas for Business Professionals & Entrepreneurs
Serving Clients in Los Angeles & Nationwide
Foreign business professionals of extraordinary ability may be eligible to obtain nonimmigrant visas for business, scientific advancement, and business-related education. The O-1A visa in particular is becoming the visa of choice for many business entrepreneurs who do not qualify for other visa categories. O-1A visas are also appropriate for businesspersons who do not have the time to wait for other work authorization-related visas such as the H-1B visa category.
Proving extraordinary ability as a businessperson can be very challenging, but our high-powered team of attorneys at Oakhurst Legal Group can help improve your likelihood of success. The O-1A visa for business professionals and entrepreneurs applies to any field, so long as the beneficiary meets the eligibility requirements of international recognition and sustained, outstanding achievements.
