O-1 Tennis Coach – Change of Status from Player to Coach

I feel very relieved now; thank you so much for all your help.
I really appreciate it.

When he entered the U.S. as a player, P. M. had impressive credentials. As a player, he had been part of his country’s Davis Cup team and was raring to play satellite tournaments in the U.S. After three years of playing the USTA circuit, he evolved into a teaching professional. When it was time to extend his visa, he wanted to know if we thought it would be advisable to change his status to that of a Tennis Coach. We reviewed his paperwork and discovered that he had been engaged to Coach his Country’s Davis Cup team and that he was also currently mentoring and coaching a top junior player on the East Coast. The O-1 Petition was filed with extensive documentation in the form of letters from the home country tennis federation and information about his coaching techniques. Since we used Premium Processing, we obtained an approval within a week.
