How To Apply For P 3 Visa In The USA

By Tiara

A personal business or tourist visa is typically one year in length, but can be extended twice that amount if needed. These visas are usually given to individuals visiting the US for tourism or business.

A third (P3) visa classification is known as an entry level worker visa. This type of visa does not require you to live in the United States while you are here, nor do they offer any kind of residency after your stay in America has ended.

There are some very important differences between these three types of visa so make sure you know which one applies to you before applying! And don’t forget to read our article about how to apply for USA VISA online.

We will go into more detail about what makes each type of visa special and why you need to be aware of them.

Create your company profile

After you have gathered all of your documents, create a company profile online. This will be used to determine if you qualify for a visa under the business category. Companies must include detailed information about themselves such as their address, phone number, email, website, and manager’s name and contact info.

They also need to include an executive summary and a full description of the business they plan to conduct while on tour. Make sure to include enough details so that officers can do some research before granting them a visa!

Company profiles are not case sensitive, which means it does not matter how you format your title, phone numbers, or emails- everything is good. But make sure to keep things simple otherwise your hard work goes wasted!

General tips: remember to update your company profile frequently as people may find new pieces of information related to your trip.

Apply for the visa

Now that you have your passport, travel documents and proof of income sorted, it is time to apply for your US immigrant visa!

You will need to visit a U.S. Embassy or Consulate in your country to complete this process. Once there, you will need to bring these documents along with you while completing the application.

Some of the more important parts of the applications include the Immigrant Petition (Form I-948) and the Affidavit of Support (I-864A). Make sure to check out our article here about what these are before filling them out!

Keep in mind that some countries require you to be present when submitting forms so make sure to do your research first to see if this is needed. Some embassies allow you to submit your form via mail but make sure to confirm this ahead of time as not all ones do.

Provide your documents

Now that you have received all of the necessary applications, you will need to gather some more important documents. These include proof of residency or employment in the United States, proof of enough money to stay here for at least six months, and proof of health insurance or adequate savings.

Proof of employment in the US requires proof of employer-issued business cards or letters confirming your position with them and their employee benefits. Make sure to bring these documents with you when traveling to the USA!

You do not have to be working during the time you are there, but it is helpful to have because it gives proof of income while you are seeking healthcare and treatments. It also helps if you plan to live outside of the hotel room after your arrival since most offer wellness facilities like gyms and swimming pools.

By having this proof, the immigration officer can determine whether you belong in the country before granting you permission to reside here.

Wait for your approval

After all of the above steps, it is time to wait for your visa appointment!
You have done everything from making an inquiry to submitting documents to receiving notification that you have been approved or denied.

Now it’s time to wait for your visa officer to get back to you with their decision. This can be anywhere from one day to several weeks depending on how many applicants they have at that time.

During this waiting period, make sure to keep yourself busy. Stay active, read, watch TV, etc… but don’t overdo it because you want to remain focus on whether you got accepted or not.

Start advertising your opening

By applying as an immigrant worker, you will need to advertise to inform potential employers about yourself and the position you want to hold. This can be done through posting on social media sites or producing a video telling your story and what positions you have held.

There is no wrong way to do it, just make sure you are being authentic and honest! Make sure to research appropriate sites first to avoid looking fake. There are many free websites that can help you get started, such as

While it is not impossible to apply for this visa without having an employee, it will likely take more than just one person to help you do so.
As mentioned earlier, being able to prove two years of employment as well as proof of sufficient income are key components of applying for the P-3 visa.

Since most employers require at least one employee while working under their company’s benefits plan, finding someone willing to work for you during that time frame can be tricky.

However, there are some ways to go about doing this, such as by offering higher paying positions or ones with longer term commitments.

Organize a launch party

After you have gathered all of your documents, organized a time where you will apply for the visa, and done some research about how to apply for a US non-immigrant visa like a B2 or E1 visa, it is time to organize a launch party!

A launch party is when you invite people over to celebrate something. In this case, we are celebrating by applying for a US immigrant visa! You can use the guests’ money to help pay for your application fees so they feel like they helped fund your trip. Or you can offer them free drinks as rewards for coming!

You should definitely advertise the event online so that anyone who would like to attend can do so.
