Bringing Entertainment Artists to the States (BEATS) Act of 2016

This bill amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to prescribe special procedures for the nonimmigrant entry of P-2 visa Canadian citizens (artists or entertainers participating in a government approved reciprocal exchange program).

Such persons may, after U.S. admission and without filing an amended petition, alter or add to the dates and venues of performances listed in the original petition, provided that the altered or additional performances constitute no more than one third of the originally listed performances.
