Who is suitable for a P1 Visa?
The P1 visa is available to professionals working in the entertainment or sports industry, either as individuals or members of a team.
Essential Support Personnel who have a role in the performance of a P-1 Visa holder may also be eligible for this permit. This category includes coaches, trainers, and other team officials. Entertainers and cultural performers are not eligible for this visa and should submit a P3 Visa form.
A P1 Visa holder can participate in both entertainment and sports events. However, those who are in a team cannot perform individually while in the U.S. If you wish to take part in unpaid recreational activities, you should apply for a B2 Tourist Visa.
