DC P-3 Visas Explained

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) sets forth the requirements for this type of visa. A P-3 visa is a special type of temporary work visa that allows performers, artists, teachers, and coaches to enter the U.S. to participate in culturally unique events. The cultural event may be commercial or noncommercial and must serve the purpose of furthering the understanding of the particular art form.

P-3 visas are valid for as long as it takes to complete the event, not to exceed one year, but extensions may be granted in one year increments when necessary for the individual to complete the event. Once the P-3 visa has been granted, the individual may apply for their spouse and unmarried children under 21 years of age to accompany them to the U.S.

How to Apply

To apply for a P-3 visa, the U.S. employer or sponsoring organization must first complete and file the Form I-129 with the proper USCIS service center, which is determined based upon the location in which the individual will be working. The Form I-129 must be submitted with the required filing fee and the necessary supporting documentation, including: a copy of the employment contract, a consultation from a labor organization, a description of the event, and evidence of the authenticity and cultural uniqueness of the event. In some cases, an individual’s support personnel may be eligible to accompany them to the U.S., but a separate application must be submitted for those personnel.
