South Korea’s Dong-hwan “Violet” Kim has earned nearly $ 100,000 playing video games. Now, he also has a US professional athlete visa to boast about.
The visa is for those “coming to the U.S. temporarily to perform at a specific athletic competition as an athlete, individually or as part of a group or team, at an internationally recognized level of performance,” according to the U.S. government.
The visa allows Kim to travel and earn money in the US for the next five years. Apparently, efforts to obtain a visa caused Kim some stress.
