The O-1 visa category canÂ lead to a permanent residency (Green Card) and citizenship, depending on the circumstanceÂ of the applicant. This category is broad and can be explored based on the individualâ€™ circumstance. Persons who fall under this category can get the visa issued for 3 years, with extensions given in differentÂ increments. It allows relocation to the U.S with family and persons necessary or pertinent to the success of your endeavours. For instance, someone in the music Industry, the band membersÂ and persons crucial to your music business.
The O-1 visa is becoming one of the most popular visa being a dual intent visa - It providesÂ one of the most flexible relocations possible. Applicants can relocateÂ with theirÂ families and still have the flexibility of traveling back and forth still conducting business in their home countries if they wish until they are ready to makeÂ theirÂ stay in the U.S more permanent.Â
A cursory glance at the classification of the O-1 visa category may scare away some persons with the use of the word "extraordinary" and think this visa is available to only the likes of WoleÂ Soyinka, Justin Beibers and Trevor Noah of this world. The layman's understanding of this visa category is so limited that they abruptly believeÂ they do not qualify, probably one of the reasons it is not as popular in Africa. There is a lack of knowledgeÂ with the O-1 visa, and A. D. & Partners will help you achieve this visa category before it becomes overly saturated.Â Â
Citizenship application is possible after a few years (3 â€“ 5) of establishing a genuine link in Malta.
