The P1A visa checklist below provides a general idea of what is usually needed for workers in the athletic field to obtain their P1A work visa. To have a better understanding of this list, please read the P1A visa overview for the big picture and then go review the P1A visa requirements and documents to get the details of what is usually included or not included as evidence for P1A visa petitions.
Please click to download the P1A visa checklist for workers in the athletic field (i.e., internationally-recognized athletes/teams, professional or amateur athletes, amateur coaches, performing ice-skaters).
The overall emphasis on the documents and requirements/criteria of a P1A visa petition is a caliber at an international level must be shown. The P1A visa worker should already be considered well-known and accomplished in their professional career.
The requirements for a P1A visa petition are extensive and while ticking the boxes of requirements sounds simple enough, figuring out what items should be included and strategizing how the petition is presented is not. It is common practice and strongly encouraged to obtain an attorney for employment-based nonimmigrant visa petitions.
