The P-1B visa is for member(s) of an entertainment group recognized internationally as outstanding in the discipline for a sustained and substantial period of time coming to the U.S. for temporary performance. At least 75 percent of the members of the group must have had a substantial and sustained relationship with the group for at least one year. (Alien circus performers and essential circus personnel are exempt from the one year requirement and the internationally recognized requirement. The alien or aliens must be coming to join a nationally recognized circus.) The entertainment group must be internationally recognized, having a high level of achievement in a field evidenced by a degree of skill and recognition substantially above that ordinarily encountered.
