What does it take to get a “genius visa” Good SAT scores? A great resume? If you really want to know, just ask Canadian model and former Playboy Playmate Shera Bechard.
The former girlfriend of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner just got a “genius visa.” It’s a special visa the U.S. Government grants only to people with “extraordinary ability.”
So how did Bechard earn the honor? Her immigration lawyer credits Bechard’s modeling and business accomplishments. She was Playboy’s Miss November in 2010. She also started an online photo sharing craze called “Frisky Friday.”
The so-called “genius visas” are quickly becoming popular with international business people. Here are the official requirements: “The individual must possess skills that are extraordinary within the field of sciences, arts, education, business, athletics or within the field of motion picture or TV industry.”
Do you agree with our government on this one? Should Bechard get the genius visa? Does she have that “extraordinary ability?” Post your thoughts below!
