Types of P Visas
P visas are generally easier to obtain than O visas. On the other hand, the P visa is restricted to only certain artists, entertainers, and athletes. To be eligible, you must have a residence in another country which you do not wish to abandon.
P visas are categorized as follows:
- P-1 visa—athletes with international recognition as an individual or member of a team
- P-1 visa—member of an internationally recognized entertainment group
- P-2 visa—artist or entertainer coming to perform under a reciprocal exchange program
- P-3 visa—artists and entertainers coming only to perform, teach, or coach in a culturally unique program
Those with P visas are admitted into the U.S. for the duration of their specific event. It is worth noting that while in the U.S. on a P visa, you are allowed to seek to become a permanent resident.
