P-1, P-2, & P-3 Visa Lawyers in Orlando
Visas for Athletes, Entertainers, and Artists
The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) provides several categories of nonimmigrant visas for a person who wishes to work temporarily in the United States. There are annual numerical limits on some classifications. At NeJame Law, an experienced attorney can assist you in this effort.
A few of the common athlete, entertainer, and artist visas include:
- P-1 classification applies to individual or team athletes, or members of an entertainment group that are internationally recognized. The annual numeric limit for this category is 25,000.
- P-2 classification applies to artists or entertainers who will perform under a reciprocal exchange program.
- P-3 classification applies to artists or entertainers who perform under a program that is culturally unique (same as P-1).
- O-1 classification applies to athletes, entertainers, or artists who have extraordinary abilities. This visa has a very rigid qualification process. Only applicants who have been recognized for achievement in their field should apply. This visa can be issued for a period of three years or for the amount of time it takes to finish a contest or activity.
The foreign national must maintain a residence abroad and must intend to return upon the expiration of their stay.
