O1A Visa Approved for an Expert in Continuous Improvement Software after TN Visa Denial
Our client had a history of successful TN visa approvals and, based on that experience, they applied again for a TN visa as a management consultant. However, things took a surprising turn when U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reviewed the application and deemed it insufficient, resulting in a denial. What’s more, our client faced not just a denial but also the threat of a bar and removal from the U.S.
In response to this challenging situation, we conducted a thorough review of the reasons for the denial and our client’s qualifications. Through this assessment, we determined that our client’s credentials were indeed sufficient for an O1A visa, designed for Individuals with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement. With this determination, we prepared a robust O1A visa application, submitted it to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and successfully secured approval.
Our client then presented the approval notice at the border, which allowed them entry to work in the U.S. under O1A visa status. They are now in the United States, serving their clients as an expert in Continuous Improvement Software.
A Valuable Lesson in Immigration
Our client’s experience serves as a vital lesson in navigating the complexities of the immigration system. As they shared, one mistake or omission in the application process can lead to significant consequences. Seeking the guidance of an immigration attorney can make all the difference in ensuring a successful outcome.
I had entered the USA on a TN visa 52 times in the past 15 years. Suddenly things have changed in both my situation and the US Border Customs processing of these visas. I had applied for a TN a few months ago and I thought that when you apply only one of two things could happen. One you get accepted or two you get rejected. But apparently there is a third possible outcome which is to be arrested. I was not arrested but I was threatened due to information that I did not consider relevant and they did. They sent me home and after that scare I really did not want to enter the USA again. But because of business I had to. So I consulted Jeremy Richards and they processed an application for an O1 Visa instead of a TN Visa. The O1 Visa is for Individuals with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement and I was accepted in 15-Days and I have an O1 Visa for three years.Thank You Richards & Jurusik. I am an experienced and intelligent businessman, but take it from me, DON’T THINK YOU KNOW THE SYSTEM OF IMMIGRATION AND DON’T CREATE AND PROCESS YOUR OWN APPLICATION. One mistake or one piece of information presented wrong or omitted by error could end up costing you far more than the cost of a Great Immigration Lawyer such as Jeremy Richards.
