The P Visa
The P visa category is reserved for athletes who compete individually or as part of a team at an internationally recognized level; or alien who perform with, or are an integral part of, performances by an entertainment group that has received international recognition.
The P visa category may be useful for internationally renowned athletes or athletic groups such as tennis players or soccer teams who desire to compete in the United States or entertainment groups such as internationally recognized jazz or rock bands.
Recent changes to the P visa now allow for visas to be issued to minor league or other athletes, whether professional or not if the athlete performs at such a level that he or she has received international recognition.
The P visa is also useful for coaches of sports teams and amateur athlete of sports teams in the U.S. that are members of a foreign league or association.
If you are a professional or amateur athlete or a coach of an international team you may qualify for a P visa.
