P-3 Petitions: Culturally Unique Performers, Teachers, or Coaches

P-3 classification is available to individuals or groups coming to the U.S. to perform, teach, or coach in a commercial or noncommercial program that is culturally unique. "Culturally unique" means "a style of artistic expression, methodology, or medium unique to a particular country, nation, society, class, ethnicity, religion, tribe, or other group of persons." P-3 performers are not required to have been associated with their groups for any length of time.

Compensation is not a factor in P-3 cases. However, labor organizations may object to instances of low compensation and inadequate expense coverage in the course of their consultations.
