Understanding the O-1 Visa

May 17, 2022 | 2 PM ET / 1 PM CT | Duration: 45 Minutes

Join this webinar to find out how employers can successfully bring skilled foreign talent to the U.S. on an O visa. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of O visa eligibility criteria, validity periods, considerations for employers and more.
