Whether you’re a Swiss tennis player, a British football (a.k.a. soccer) player, or a Russian hockey player, at some point you’ll want to come to the U.S. to compete with the biggest names in your game. Luckily, there are several visa options available to international sports figures.

There are also several options for foreign athletes who wish to remain in the U.S. permanently. Obtaining a Green Card, or an Immigrant Visa, requires careful planning with an experienced immigration attorney.
