The athlete visa (P visa) is a nonimmigrant visa that is designated for those individuals who are athletes or group entertainers. Athlete visas permit foreign athletes and/or performers to enter the U.S. to perform at a competition, event or performance. The P visa is typically applied for when an individual was unable to meet the criteria for the extraordinary ability visa (O visa).
Without an athlete visa, your travel is restricted and you will not be able to move freely across the U.S. Also, it can be impossible to take on any form of part-time study and you will not be allowed to apply for adjustment of status or seek citizenship of the U.S. To be able to get full benefits of the P visa, it is advised to consult with an immigration attorney.
An immigration lawyer can help you determine if you meet the appropriate criteria for getting a P visa. Immigration lawyers know all the rules and restrictions and can help you work your way around them so the application process goes smoothly. An immigration lawyer can also help you apply for a P visa in the event that you've applied for an extraordinary ability visa and were denied.
