Rob Halford's personal manager John Baxter revealed in a posting on HALFORD's official web site yesterday that the singer's O-1 Visa (U.S. Outstanding Performers Class Visa) has been approved by the INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) and that Rob would re-enter the U.S. over the course of the next several days."INS telephoned Rob's U.S. immigration attorney on Monday to inform them that if Rob was in the U.S. they would extend his stay," Baxter wrote. "The attorney returned the call, informing INS that Rob was in England awaiting approval, so he could re-enter. INS approved Rob's Visa [on Wednesday, Jan. 8]. He'll be traveling into the U.S. shortly." As previously reported, HALFORD's planned West Coast mini-tour, originally scheduled to take place in late December/early January, was postponed until early February after Rob was denied entry into the U.S. from London, England due to visa problems.
