What kind of temporary visa should I apply for as an alien artist, athlete or entertainer?

New Jersey P Status Attorneys

You will want to apply for what is known as a P visa classification. A P visa is a temporary visa for foreign nationals looking to work in the United States as an entertainer, artist or athlete. There are three kinds of P status visas, a P-1, P-2 or P-3 status. A P-1 classification is usually applied for athletes and entertainment groups that are foreign-based. A P-2 classification is for alien artists or entertainers who will perform their craft under a reciprocal exchange program. And finally, a P-3 classification is for alien entertainment teachers or acting coaches under a program that is culturally unique. Each classification has their own requirements and documentation needed to apply.

Given all the different kinds of classifications for a P status temporary visa, navigating as to which one you may be eligible for is difficult and confusing alone.
