The P-3 visa is for artists or entertainers coming temporarily to the United States to perform, teach or coach, individually or as part of a group, under a program that is culturally unique.
Who is eligible for a P-3 Visa?
The P-3 individual or group applicant must be coming to the United States to:
Duration of stay
The initial duration of stay is the time needed to complete the event, competition or performance, not to exceed 1 year. An extension of stay in increments of up to 1 year in order to continue or complete the event, activity or performance may be requested.
Your U.S. employer or sponsoring organization must submit Form I-129, Petition for a Non-Immigrant Worker to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) together with the following documentation:
Upon USCIS approval of the application, the applicant must apply for a visa at the appropriate U.S. consulate in order to enter the United States.
Can I change Employers?
Yes, but only after your new employer has filed a new Form I-129 with USCIS requesting permission to employ you and extend your stay. You may not commence employment with the new employer until the Form I-129 has been approved.
Can I bring my family?
Yes. Your spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 may obtain P-4 status. Your dependents may not engage in employment, but may attend school or college.
