The Supporting Documents for Form I-129 Application of P-1 Support Personnel

Hi William,

Our company will soon file a Form I-129 application for a P-1 entertainer's support personnel. What are the supporting documents for the application?


The Essential Support Personnel who are an integral part of the performance of a P-1 entertainer and who perform support services which cannot be readily performed by a U.S. worker, are eligible for P-1 classification. Support personnel include front office personnel, camera operators, lighting technicians, and stage personnel.

The petitioner must file a separate Form I-129 for support personnel. The petition must include the following documents:

1) A consultation from an appropriate labor organization;

2) A statement describing the support person’s prior and current essentially, critical skills, and experience with the P-1 entertainer(s); and

3) A copy of a written contract between the employer and the support person or a summary of the terms of the oral agreement under which the support person will be employed.
