  • How long will the process take?
    It typically takes 3-4 months for us to prepare for an O-1, including drafting all required documents, recommendation letters, researching events and organizations, etc. To give you an idea, most O-1 visas take us approximately 100 labor-hours to complete. Once submitted to immigration, USCIS usually takes about 3 months to issue a decision unless you choose “premium processing” which for an additional fee of $2,500 guarantees a decision in 15 days.
  • How much does it cost?
    O-1 visas $8,000+ EB-1 green cards $15,000+ You can find a complete list of our current rates here.
  • How do I know if I am qualified?
    Fill out the Get Started form and we will contact you to evaluation your case. You can also read more about the process in our Immigration Guides.
  • Can my spouse/children come with me?
    Yes! Spouses and children receive O-3 visas, which allow children to attend school but spouses do not get work authorization.
  • Can I travel in and outside of the US during the O-1 period?
    Yes. We recommend that you have a full itinerary of at least 6 months in the US without significant gaps, but there is no “minimum time” you must spend inside of the United States while on the O-1 visa.
  • Who can be a “Sponsor” (Petitioner)?
    Your employer, a tattoo studio, is typically the Petitioner. But if you have an itinerary where you will work at different places and are filing with an “agent” this can be any US Citizen or green card holder. We recommend that this person be in the tattoo industry.
  • Whoa, Tattoo Visa has an App?! Who should use it?
    Anyone! Download it for Apple and Android. You'll find helpful items and links in the Tattoo Visa App. Once you become a client with an active case with Tattoo Visa, we will use the App to communication (including messages, chats, video meetings, and more), collect documents from you and your Petitioner, communicate the workflow and progress of your application, and so much more. 🙌
