P1 Visa may help your athlete or entertainment team to get global exposure

P1 is a type of Visa where members of an athlete or entertainment groups come to the US. The athlete or entertainment group must be internationally recognized.

Sometimes it suffices if the group is nationally recognized when it scores excellence in its own discipline, but has been unknown due to the lack of media exposure or as a consequence of geographic limitation.

At least 75% of the embers must have been performing together for 1 year. P1 holders could study part time, get paid for performance, compete for a prize or work for various employers.

Each employer should file a separate petition. P1 Visa program may help your team to get international exposures. Contact a lawyer for more details.

What are the general requirements for P1 visas?

A P1 visa holder is usually an internationally recognized athlete or a member of an internationally recognized sports team.

Holder of P1 visa could get paid for performance or may study part time in the US.

This visa may be issued for tournaments, seasonal competitions, events, vacations, or any activities that are incidental or related to the sport.

While P1 requires international recognition, armature athletes could apply for tourist visas to enter US &  work visas (H-2B) may be issued for less accomplished athletes.

A contract with a major US team or league is generally required.

The burden of proof to show an individual or a team is internationally recognized is upon the applicant or his attorney.

To determine your visa eligibility, discuss your case with a competent counsel.
