Athletes and celebrities always get special treatment, right? Not when it comes to needing a visa to work in the U.S. Even outstanding athletes, athletic teams and entertainment companies, including circuses, must obtain a temporary, short-term visa. The visa is known as a P visa and is available to qualifying applicants who have a valid job offer from a U.S. employer. There are three relevant types of P visas: P-1, P-2 and P-3.
