P visas are an essential part of an entertainment and sports immigration attorney’s toolkit. But each P visa category has its own special rules, adjudication trends, and documentation requirements. USCIS’ processing of these cases can vary significantly from employer to employer and field to field. Expert speakers for this intermediate seminar will provide an in-depth look at the P visa, including a discussion of petitioner selection and case documentation strategies, as well as tricky fact scenarios. They also will address common issues that surface and provide advice on preparing clients to overcome them.

Featured Topics:

  • Who qualifies for each of the P visa categories?
  • Petitioner options: team sports, individual athletes with no league petitioner, independent bands, and groups with U.S. citizen members
  • Representing circus groups, including establishing an exemption to the one-year group membership and international recognition requirement for the P-1B visa
  • Advising employers on maintaining group composition and longevity requirements
  • Documenting filings for essential support personnel
