P visas are not as difficult to obtain as O visas, but you will still need to demonstrate extraordinary abilities and/or international recognition.
The P visa category is divided into two categories:
- P-1A visas for athletes. You may need to demonstrate national team experience, substantial contributions, international rankings, internationally known events held in the U.S., experience on a U.S. Major League Team, letters from experts and high-level athletes, and more.
- P-1B visas for performers in an entertainment group. Members should share international acclaim and recognition as a group—not just on an individual basis. The group should have evidence of major international achievement, and most members should have contributed to the group for at least a year before applying for the visa (except for circus members).
We can also help your essential staff obtain P-1S visas so they can accompany you. They can only qualify if the services they provide cannot be easily replaced by the work of U.S. citizens.
