Hey All

Wanted to get some advice, hopefully positive, I'm a Tennis coach from Ireland, I'm qualified with the International Blind Tennis Association in Blind and Visually Impaired Tennis. I have been part of the Irish Team as coach for world championships in Dublin 2018 and will be again at World championships in Spain in 2019. There are very few if any qualified blind tennis teachers in USA and no clubs have a blind program or disability program. I have some associations Interested and clubs and wondered what I can do visa wise for USA. surely my participation at international level and uniqueness of my qualification will help.??

Thanks

Welcome @Setanta

 

From what you described it sounds like you will qualify for an O-visa. Here is some information on the visa.

You will need a competent immigration lawyer who is an expert in O visas to help prepare your application. 

You think it's possible I qualify.??

Beckham got a visa. Many Tennis players have.

If your skills are as specialized and rare as you claim, and you can get enough support/evidence for that from local tennis associations, I don’t see why not. I’m not an attorney of course. An experienced O attorney will know what uscis is looking for re supporting documentation and how to put the application together.
