O Visa, P Visa - Extraordinary Talent & Entertainment Visas

The U.S. welcomes individuals who have exceptional talent into the country to perform, visit, or teach in their respective specialties. To encourage and expedite their entry, the government provides special visa categories for such individuals.
Visas available for those with extraordinary talents:
- The P visa categories make it easier for artists, entertainers, and other members of the entertainment field to enter the U.S.
- P-1 Visas for Internationally Recognized Athletes, Artists, and Performers: Holders of this visa can enter the country to perform or compete at a specific event for a temporary period of time.
- P-2 Visas for Performers or Groups Under a Reciprocal Exchange Program: Groups with as little as two people can apply for this visa and enter the country to perform at an event.
- P-3 Visas Culturally Unique Entertainers and Artists: Artists and performers who have produced work that is culturally unique can enter the U.S. to educate or perform.
- The O visa is intended to expedite entry into the U.S. for individuals with special achievement or ability in their fields.
- O-1A Visas for Individuals of Extraordinary Ability or Achievement in education, science, business or athletics
- O-1B Visas for Individuals of Extraordinary Ability in the arts, motion picture, television, or entertainment industry
- O-2 Visas for Support Individuals Accompanying O-1 Visa Holders (such as assistants, support staff, nurses or other medical staff)
Eligibility for O & P Visas
To be eligible for a P visa, an individual must demonstrate outstanding ability or achievement that is recognized at an international level.
O-1 visa holders are reserved only for internationally-recognized individuals who have made significant contributions to their fields and require a much higher level of achievement than the P visas. Examples of O-1 visa holders include award-winning researchers, world-class athletes, Nobel laureates, multinational business leaders, etc.

Thank you for all your help and patience with my H1B. You made a difficult time a little easier and less stressful, which I greatly appreciate. Ambreen was very helpful in our immigration process and her efforts and work helped us to achieve our most important goal, which is a future for ourselves and our child in the United States. It was a great experience to work with such a professional. We always felt that she was reachable either by e-mail or by phone. We were very impressed with her way of doing business and how she tracked and controlled every issue such that our immigration process went well. She was very responsive, constantly reviewing and checking for the documents needed to carry on the process. They handle the legal process in a professional way, and the treatment is friendly with the clients, which makes it easier and more enjoyable. They always follow up with all the steps throughout the process and kept me informed of the outcomes and further documents needed for the next steps, which made me stay one step ahead of the process to help ensure the desired outcome. Really glad to have her and Akula associates as my attorney in our successful visa applications. We look forward to working with her again for our future legal needs.- Priya

My journey started with Akula & Associates exactly 10 months ago. Came to know about them through a friend, casually called, impressed with their profile and signed up contract for services. Last 10 months we filed several cases and each case they treat like a completely new customer and examine each document thoroughly, advise and make us on top of the things. I truly say sincere THANKS for their great service. I truly love their staff. My paralegal Yezenia is awesome, attorney Toki is wonderful. Yet to work more with GC team, Shirin and Christie, great work experience so far. Last but not least Attorney Kavitha is Great!!! I hope I get the same level of service for me and employees for coming years!!! Good luck to Akula & Associates !!- Venkat C.
