Fort Lauderdale Sports Immigration Attorneys
Decades of Immigration Law Experience
The United States allows professional and amateur athletes, minor athletes under the age of 18, parents of minor athletes, coaches, and other sports industry workers to travel to, live in, and work in the U.S. via the sports immigration process. This process is complex; it’s important that you work with an experienced immigration lawyer who can help you every step of the way.
Together, the Fort Lauderdale sports immigration lawyers at Guerra Sáenz, PL have decades of experience. Attorney Luis A. Guerra is Board Certified in Immigration and Nationality Law, making him an expert in this area of law.
Types of Sports Immigration Visas
There are several different types of sports immigration visas available to those wishing to live and work/compete in the United States. The type of visa you will need will depend on the reason you wish to travel to the U.S.
Guerra Sáenz, PL can assist you with any of the following sports immigration visas:
- P-1A Athlete Visa: For athletes wishing to come to the U.S. on a temporary basis in order to participate in a tournament, competition, or similar sports event
- Major Soccer League Visa: Includes O-1 and P-1 visas for soccer players who have extraordinary abilities or who wish to travel to the U.S. to play in a tournament or singular event
- O-1 Visa: For athletes who demonstrate “extraordinary abilities and/or achievements” (must prove they are in the top percent of athletes in their sport)
We can also assist you if you have extraneous circumstances, for example, if you are a student athlete who wishes to come to the U.S. to train, if you are a recent foreign graduate of a U.S. university who wishes to remain in the country to continue competing, or if you are a coach, trainer, nutritionist, or another related professional who wants to come to the U.S.
