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 to include with a petition for the visa.
What about support personnel?
Front office personnel, camera operators, lighting technicians and stage personnel are eligible for P-1 temporary nonimmigrant work visa. They must be an integral part of the performance of a P-1B entertainment nonimmigrant visa holder. In addition, a U.S. worker cannot easily perform their duties.
Family of P-1B Visa Holders
The spouse and children under 21 of a P-1B visa holder may enter the United States with a P-4 visa. However, they cannot receive work authorization. They may instead pursue educational goals.
