Temporary Nonimmigrant Work Visas for Members of an Internationally Recognized Group
A nonimmigrant visa grants you temporary stay in the United States. When your visa expires, you must leave the United States unless you have applied for Legal Permanent Residency.
The P-1B visa is available to members of an entertainment group that has existed for at least one year and been recognized internationally as outstanding.
What are the qualifications for the P-1B classification?
In order to qualify for the P-1B entertainment temporary nonimmigrant work visa, you must show that the entertainment group is internationally recognized. It is the group’s reputation, rather than any individual achievements, that is relevant to the application process for the visa.
Please contact us our office for much more information about qualifications and necessary documentation which must be provided along with a petition for the visa.
What about support personnel?

They must be considered to be an integral part of the performance of a P-1B entertainment nonimmigrant visa holder. In addition, the duties they perform must be those that could not easily be performed by a U.S. worker.
