In 2013, Mahdi Gilbert began taking trips to New York City, where he met and studied with many magicians. In 2017, he was awarded an O1 Visa from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for magic. This highly coveted visa is reserved for foreigners who possess “extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics, or who has a demonstrated record of extraordinary achievement in the motion picture or television industry and has been recognized nationally or internationally for those achievements“. Mahdi is one of the only magicians in history to hold this visa for magic.

Since being granted the great privilege to perform in the United States of America he toured the country but can often be found working and performing magic in NYC.
