Green Card (alien resident card)? If YES, please email or fax us a copy of your card so that we can update your membership profile for full membership privileges. We will also need to know if you have competed internationally within the past 3 years for home country.
If you have applied for a Green Card and it is still in process you must still seek permission from your home country (see Visa criteria).
Visa? If YES, we need a letter from your IPF Affiliate, sent to firstname.lastname@example.org granting you approval to compete with USA Powerlifting. You should contact your IPF affiliate listed here: www.powerlifting-ipf.com/federation/regions.html for the letter of approval. You must receive both permission from your home federation and USA Powerlifting prior to competing.
Student Visa? If you are on a Student Visa AND are competing with a registered Collegiate Team, (Registered Collegiate Teams are listed Here) please email email@example.com and identify which team you are competing with. If not competing with a registered Collegiate Team, the above Visa criteria applies for seeking approval.
DACA? If YES, please email or fax a copy of your DACA Permit
Other? If you fall under a different scenario than Green Card or Visa or are not from a country with an IPF affiliate and would like to compete within USA Powerlifting, please email us explaining your situation.
Those who do not have a green card and are granted permission to compete with USA Powerlifting will compete as ‘Guest Lifters’ and will not be eligible to set State or American Records.
