B1/B2 Travel Visa Basics

Tourist Visas are considered “Nonimmigrant Visas” and should not be used if you intend to stay in the United States permanently. The Visa Waiver Program allows business and leisure travelers from participating countries to come to the United States without a visa for up to 90 days.  Check if your country is on the list,   you may only need to register in the online ESTA portal prior to traveling.
  • B1 Visas are for short term Business travel like negotiating contracts, attending professional conferences, or consulting with business associates.
  • B2 Visas are for traveling to and within the United States for sightseeing, visiting friends or relatives, amateur sports competitions (unpaid), short training or education courses that do not count toward a degree, or for medical treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is not allowed on a Tourist Visa?

Birth Tourism, traveling with the intent of giving birth in the United States to obtain citizenship for the child, is also strictly prohibited.

How long does it take to get a Tourist Visa?
