Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
Hello, I am James. I will be helping you today. I do not get a salary here. But just like you, I want to get credit for doing my job. You are the only person who can help me get credit before leaving this site today. So please do not forget to do that by giving me a positive rating with 3 or more stars or any of the smiling faces.
Also, if you want me to be your personal immigration Expert, just write “FOR JAMES" at the beginning of any future, new questions, and I will be happy to help you as your personal Expert.
Please answer the following:
When you say "move to the US," do you mean permanently?
Where are you right now?
Please accept my apologies for the delay in my response. I was offline when you responded and only just returned. I am very sorry for any inconvenience this might have caused you.
You can't come to the US for the purpose of working as a musician, and not have a visa that is related to your being a musician. With that in mind, there are only a few non-immigrant options for musicians/artists/entertainers - O-1 and P-visas.
Here is information on the O-1: http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/an-o-1-visa-the-us-do-you-qualify.html
Here is information on the various P-visas: http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/a-p-1-p-2-p-3-visa-the-us-do-you-qualify.html
Look those over and if you have any questions about those, feel free to ask them.
Of course you can ask me any other question related to your original question as well, but the links above are a good place to start.
