P-1 Athletic Visas for Pro Gamers for 5 Years? Score!

December 14, 2013 (1 min read)

"On the heels of the P-1 visas granted to Riot Games’ video game players over the summer, I was immediately approached by two (2) South Korean video game players, or “gamers”, as they are called in the electronic sports (eSports) industry. We successfully made the argument that professional gamers are eligible for P-1A classification as internationally recognized “digital athletes”, and recently secured P-1 visa classification for two video game players from South Korea to train and compete in the eSports league in the U.S. for a five-year period." - Fuji Yussefieh Whittenburg, Dec. 10, 2013.
