It is a performing art company; contracting performers for classical music venues, weddings venues, events, etc.
I would like to be hired as the artistic director and a performer for the company. I am guessing that I would need either O1 visa or E2 visa. What kind of requirements does the company have to hire/sponsor a non-immigrant worker?
For E2, you need to bring a lot of money to invest in the business, and for O-1 you should have high level of achievements in the related field (you can read more about it here: https://www.fattahi-law.com/immigration/o-1-visa/). However, details should be discussed with an immigration attorney, since the information you provided is not sufficient, and both of these categories (as well as and any other visa category that you could potentially be eligible for) need extensive legal discussions for eligibility determination.
