The P-3 nonimmigrant classification is suitable for international artists who will come to UH temporarily to perform, teach, or coach, individually or as part of a group, under a production or program that is culturally unique. As the employer/sponsor, UH can file P-3 petitions on behalf of eligible individuals with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). An artist may also use an agent to petition for multiple P-3 sponsors across the U.S.
