League Comments on O Visa Response Template

The League joined the AFM and a range of other national performing arts organizations in submitting comments to USCIS on behalf of the performing arts community.  The USCIS is revising the form it uses when asking visa petitioners to provide more information to support an O visa application.   USCIS issues a Request for Evidence (RFE) when a petition is incomplete.  We are urging USCIS to ensure that the response it gives to petitioners in the RFE is clear, concise, and is consistent with the information USCIS provides petitioners as they prepare to submit their initial petition, so that petitioners can readily reply to the RFE and keep their petition moving through the review process without unnecessary delay.
