May 04, 2012 – Azhar & Azhar Law Firm Secures O-1 Visa for Australian Country Music Singer
On May 04, 2012 Azhar & Azhar Law Firm secured an O-1 visa (Alien of Extraordinary Ability) for our client who is a professional country music singer who currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee. Our client qualified for the O-1 visa category as an alien of extraordinary ability in the arts having received national and international recognition in the field of music, having been recognized on the national and international stage through many major print and media outlets, and having earned a considerable amount of money through concerts, royalties, and endorsements.
Our client’s debut album reached as high as number 3 on the Australian Country Music Charts. Her album was buoyed by the success of her two featured singles, each of which rose all the way to number 1 on the Country Music Charts in Australia. Our client has attended multiple red carpet events including the Country Music Awards, the Country Music Channel Awards, American Country Awards and many Hollywood movie premiers. She currently holds endorsements with Cruel Girl Country Clothing, Maui Jim sunglasses, and Corral Western Boots while being featured in national magazines and newspapers.
Although USCIS recently changed their guidelines for approving O-1 application, making it increasingly difficult for musicians and performers to come to the United States in O-1 status, the attorneys earned an approval on our client’s case on May 04, 2012.
Our client will now begin work on her second album as she continues to tour the United States performing before thousands of fans at sold out shows.
