P-1B Labor Consultation Details

Please first review the Labor Consultation page under the Required Evidence section for universal guidance on labor consultations.

Follow the O-1B process, but remember that for labor consultations, there are no special forwarding procedures available from USCIS and no right to rely on a prior labor consultation letter, even if a consultation was obtained for the group within the past two years.

Note that the consultation requirement is waived for certain positions that have no direct input into the creative aspects of a production or performance, and also in cases where there is no appropriate union, as with interpreters, music librarians and even artistic administrators. but it is best first to check with the unions to verify that they do not “cover” a particular position. For further details and how to request a waiver, visit the Labor Consultation page.
