Arts Require Timely Service Act of 2018 or the ARTS Act of 2018

This bill amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to require the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to adjudicate O and P visa petitions (nonimmigrant visas for aliens with extraordinary ability or achievement, and artists and entertainers) within 14 days after receiving such petitions and related documents.

The bill grants premium visa processing without charge to a petitioner that is a nonprofits arts organization if DHS does not meet the deadline for adjudicating a visa petition.
