On Our Radar: Models May Get Their Own Visa Category

They're young, they're gorgeous, but they don't have as much access as you may think. Many non-United States citizen fashion models are not granted visas to fly to the US, where many of their assignments are shot. That's because models must compete with engineers and other high tech workers for H-1B visas, which are given to well educated foreign citizens.

That may all change if models are granted their own visa category under legislation moving on Capitol Hill. The fashion industry's argument is that if models are not granted visas, assignments will be forced to move overseas, thus taking money away from American industry professionals. What's more, "American models lose the chance of working at events that move overseas. This is about millions of dollars that would go abroad that will be spent in America,” said Bruce Morrison, a former Congressman who lobbies for a coalition of fashion industry businesses. This sounds like a dire issue. I hope it gets sorted out soon so we can see more Fab faces in fashion.
