Entertainment Visas for Actors, Artists and Athletes

At MJLAW, we represent individual artists, actors, musicians, athletes, and talent agents who are seeking for non-immigrant, temporary P or O visas to work or perform here in the United States.

O1A Visa for Scientists, Researchers, Fine Arts Experts and/or Educators

The O1A visa is a non-immigrant entertainment visa designated for aliens of extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business or athletics.

O1B Visa for Artists, Actors and Actresses, Filmmakers and Outstanding Abilities

The O1B visa is very helpful for artists, athletes, entertainers, high-end chefs, and business people lacking professional degrees. There is no prevailing wage requirement, and the O1B visa may be extended indefinitely. There is also no numerical limit to the number of O1B visas issued.

P1 Visa for Athletes and Entertainers

The P1 visa for athletes and entertainers provides a great alternative to an O entertainment visa petition. P1 has been expanded to allow minor league and amateur athletes an opportunity to qualify for the visa under certain circumstances, and music bands, circus performers and other entertainers as well.

P2 and P3 Visa for Musicians, Artists, Music Bands, Entertainers and their Crew

The P2 and P3 visa for entertainment groups includes groups as small as two persons. One of the applicable requirements for entertainment groups is that at least 75% of the petitioned group must have been together for more than one year prior to the time of filing of the petition. The P2 or P3 entertainment visa can be used by a wide array of entertainment groups including musicians, dancers, singers and their supporting staff.

  • Gabriel Jack helped us apply for an O-1 Visa, when we needed to change visa status and we got it! The documentation required for an O-1 visa is extensive but we managed to complete everything together with Gabriel in about 4 weeks. Gabriel is very professional and knows what is important and he is also easy to talk to and helpful. We are very pleased and will use Gabriel again should there be a need.

  • Gabriel did a good job. He was easy to deal with, returned calls and did what he said he would – nice change from some lawyers I’ve dealt with. My E3 was approved with no trouble at all…and he’s a really nice person, which is a good bonus. Thanks Gabe!!
    Counrty of Origin Many Thanks! -
  • We had previously shopped around for an immigration lawyer, but we went with Gabriel. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and thorough. He was able to help us to prepare a very detailed interview packet, and we got our E2 visa at the end of the interview.
