Default Do you think Beckham has a GC?

I was having this discussion today at work. Do you think he (and the missus/kids) have a GC or visa?

Any thoughts on what type/category?

Green Card. National Interest or Person of Exceptional Ability.

With the right qualifications/international reputation, you can go from zero to GC in less than 3 months.

They fall under EB1 if I am not mistaken, and will get a GC within a few months.

If he gets a GC he has to pay US taxes. I wonder if he might play under some sportsman visa or something else.

"O" visa is what they get if they come and work here - extraordinary ability but not GC.

Surely not an "O" visa for the missus too!

Yeah. She could be mistaken for a mannequin if she spends too much time on Rodeo Drive...
