P-1 Athletes & Entertainers

P visas allow internationally recognized performers, artists, and athletes to work temporarily in the Unites States. In addition, spouses and children may accompany the holders of P visas to the United States for the length of the visa, but may not secure employment in the United States. P visas may be issued to an individual, a performing group, or an entire team.

To be eligible for a P visa, the following criteria must be met:

  • The performer or athlete must perform at a level that attains international recognition
  • Entertainers may be granted a P-2 visa to participate in an international reciprocal exchange program with a U.S. organization
  • An applicant for P-3 visas to coach or teach under a cultural exchange program must typically be at least eighteen years of age
