Request a Peer Consultation Letter

Dance/USA can provide peer consultation letters to U.S.-based agents and organizations petitioning to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for O and P visa status on behalf of a foreign artist. Peer consultation letters are optional support material for visa petitions, offering valuable support for foreign artists. Dance/USA's peer consultation letter does not serve as a substitute for the required letter from a labor union.

Dance/USA offers peer consultation letters as a free benefit to our members when the member is serving as the petitioner or beneficiary. Non-members will be charged $150 per letter.

To request a Peer Consultation Letter from Dance/USA, please submit the USCIS petition which should include:

  1. A copy of the 1-129 Form
  2. A copy of the visa petitioner's cover letter stating:
  3. A bio or resume outlining:

Dance/USA generally requires a week's notice to provide a letter. Please email or mail copies of materials - not your originals - to the attention of:
