For athletes and entertainers

To help certain athletes, performers, artists and other cultural workers enter the United States on a temporary basis, the U.S. government issues several different types of P-visas. These entry certificates are often issued before major events like the Olympics, music festivals and cultural expositions. For a quarter of a decade, the P-visa lawyers at the Gutierrez Law Firm have helped a variety of clients who work in cultural fields enter the United States in a timely and legal fashion.

Since P-visas are often issued on a short-term basis, it is crucial that prospective visa holders retain a competent legal professional before beginning the application process. The diligent P-visa attorneys at the Gutierrez Law Firm have accurately processed hundreds of visa applications and helped many satisfied clients secure visas without delay or complication.

Types of P-Visas

The various types of P-class visas are briefly described below. Each type will also be described in greater detail on a separate page within our website.

The Difference Between O and P-Class Visas

Although O-visas can also be issued to performers, athletes and artists, recipients of O-1 visas must have demonstrated exceptional achievement or ability within their specialty.

By contrast, P-visas can be issued to amateur or extracurricular performers or cultural workers. P-class visas tend to come with stricter terms and typically terminate after the end of the pertinent exhibition or competition. In addition, holders of P-visas must be sponsored by a recognized organization that is based within the United States.
