Who Qualifies for the P-3 Visa?
The P-3 classification applies to you if you’re a temporary foreign national who is visiting the United States to teach, perform or coach as an entertainer or artist. Further, the applicant also needs to justify if they’ll be coming individually, as a group member, or under a cultural exchange program. Remember, the program may either be of commercial or noncommercial nature.
Applicants of the P-3 visa need to get their Form I-129 filed by the sponsoring organization or the U.S employer. A Petition must further support the application for nonimmigrant Worker. Remember, if you’re a petitioner filing as an agent for multiple employers, you’ll have to verify your authorization.
Change Of Employer
Applicants under the Visa category P-3 can change employers once the new employer files for a Form I-129 with USCIS, seeking permission for employment and extended stay. Further, it should be noted that you cannot commence employment until your Form I-129 has been approved.
Family of P Visa Holders
If you’re a successful P visa holder, your spouse and unmarried children under 21 years are entitled to a P-4 status. However, it should be noted that your dependents can’t engage in employment but may attend school or college.
