- You must be an artist, entertainer, or athlete coming to the United States to perform in a culturally unique program.
- Your performance must be part of a culturally unique program, which means it is a traditional, ethnic, folk, cultural, musical, theatrical, or artistic presentation.
- You must be an integral part of the performance and possess skills not readily available in the United States.
- You must be sponsored by a U.S. employer or organization with expertise in presenting culturally unique programs.
- You must have a written consultation from a peer group, labor organization, or professional organization that verifies your skills and qualifications.
- You must have a contract or itinerary that outlines your planned performances and the dates and locations of those performances.
- You must have the appropriate visa documentation and meet all other eligibility requirements for entry into the United States.
- You may be eligible for a P3 visa if you meet these criteria. It’s important to work with an experienced immigration attorney to help you navigate the application process and ensure your application is complete and accurate.
Here are some examples of individuals who may be eligible for a P3 visa:
- Musicians who perform traditional or folk music from their home country, such as Irish fiddle players, African drummers, or Indian sitar players.
