P Visas


The P1 visa is designed for athletes or entertainers such as rock bands, circus performers, burlesque dancers, or artists in unique traditional ethnic, folk, cultural, musical, or theatric productions. Coaches and support staff may also qualify for this status. 

Applicants must be internationally recognized as outstanding.  75% of members of group performers must have been an integral part of the group for at least one year.  This requirement does not apply to support personnel, coaches, or circus troupes.  USCIS offers waivers for this requirement on a case by case basis.
