We typically require applicants to provide at least the following documents for review, in order to consider writing a peer letter of consultation:
- I-129: This is the visa petition form provided by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) to nonimmigrant visa applicants. It should be signed.
- Petitioner's Letter: This is the signed letter submitted by the petitioner to USCIS, which confirms the operations the artist applicant will complete while in the United States.
- 3-4 Support Letters: These are references to confirm the extraordinary ability of the applicant. They should be signed.
- Artist's Curriculum Vitae:This is the artist applicant's resume, which may outline their previous experience, accomplishments, training, and awards.
Each of these documents should be provided in its completed form for review. If any one of these items will not be submitted to USCIS with a particular petition, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss whether or not alternative documentation may be provided instead. In some cases, a copy of the itinerary or work samples may be useful.
Please note that we request aforementioned documents from any artists, arts groups, or entertainers requesting a peer letter of consultation through Fractured Atlas.
