Hey all,

As the title says, what visa/work permit would we need to get a couple of British musicians over for a one-night gig?

Thanks.

It's usually a P-1. They should talk to their union who should be able to help with the ins and outs of reciprocal agreements between UK/US for performers.

P1 would also be my first though and from what I have seen something their Agent/Manager sorts out.

Could be a P-3 visa if it is considered a cultural event. These type visas expire a few days after the performance event date.

Thanks all. Yeah, P3 was what I was thinking too. It's very folk-ish/unique to the UK.
