Artist Visa Fee Increases and Policy Changes

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has proposed making it much more costly to apply to U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) for the required visas for international guest artists, and is inviting the public to comment on its plans to increase most of its filing fees, including those for O and P artist visas applications filed by U.S. nonprofit arts organizations.

U.S. arts presenters and employers are invited to weigh in during the open comment period until Dec. 30.
