U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Request for Advisory Opinions to Support Temporary VISA Petition

The American Culinary Federation is recognized by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), as a management organization or peer group. The ACF is an authority on cooking in America and can offer a written advisory opinion to support an O-1B, O-2, or P-3 temporary visa petition for non-immigrant culinarians.

The ACF requires submission of the Application for Advisory Opinion along with the completed USCIS application form with O/P supplement and supporting documentation. The cost is $525 allowing 1–2 weeks for processing or $585 for expedited 3-business day service. Payment is required at time of application.

Where it determines that the applicant meets the standards required for the desired visa category, ACF will issue a letter of no objection as provided for by applicable regulation. Where the request is made in connection with a response to an RFE or NOID received from USCIS, a copy of the document received from USCIS must be attached.

For questions, please contact Lisa Emmons at (800) 624-9458, ext. 122, or lemmons@acfchefs.net.
