USCIS, Mar. 26, 2021
"The P-1A nonimmigrant visa classification is available, in part, to a person who performs, individually or as part of a team, as an athlete at an “internationally recognized level of performance.” This update provides more detailed guidance regarding the required prospective level of performance. In addition, the update provides USCIS’ interpretation of the undefined regulatory phrase “major United States sports league or team” as it relates to these internationally recognized P-1A athletes. This guidance, contained in Volume 2 of the Policy Manual, is effective immediately and applies prospectively to P-1A petitions filed on or after March 26, 2021."
