Prelude Productions


Regarding O1 visa sponsor requirements - 2011 update:


For artists, it is recommended to have a sponsoring company who is an agent, since artists generally need to work with multiple employers / gigs/ projects / etc. However, the USCIS may ask evidence to prove that the petitioner is an established company or agent. Only an established company, such as Prelude Productions and its affiliates, was able to provide the necessary details and become qualified as an illegible sponsor.


For example, few months ago the USCIS had few general concerns about a sponsor when asking for Further Evidence:


Submit evidence that establishes the financial status of the United States organization.


Provide complete copies of the U.S. entity’s bank statements for, the month prior to filing, the months of February 2011.


Provide Company’s State registration copy as an LLC company


We have successfully established a sufficient evidence for its eligibility as an O1 sponsor and petitioner as an agent. As a result, All our petitions have been approved by the USCIS.

We accept submissions from artists, including O1 Visa Sponsorship.
