The Types of Visas
Just like many other countries, the United States has strict laws pertaining to who may enter the country, how long they can stay, and what they can do while they are here. Any foreign national who wishes to enter the U.S. must obtain a visa. The type of visa you will be required to have depends on your reason for visiting the country.
There are two main categories of visas, including:
- Non-immigrant visas
- Immigrant visas
Non-immigrant visas are for non-U.S. citizens who wish to enter the country temporarily for business, specialty work, tourism, medical treatment, or education. Those who seek this type of visa must demonstrate to the immigration officer that they intend to leave the U.S. after their temporary stay. It is important to understand that the issuance of a visa does not guarantee entry into the country. That decision is left to the CBP officer at the port of entry.
Immigrant visas must be obtained by any who intend to live and work permanently in the U.S. Typically, an individual will need to be sponsored by a relative or employer to be granted an immigrant visa. In some cases, certain individuals, such as investors or those with extraordinary abilities, may petition on their own behalf.
