A USA visa permits a foreign individual to request permission to enter the country at a US port of entry (usually an airport). We can ensure that your USA visa application goes smoothly, but an approved USA visa does not guarantee access to the US.
At the port of entry, officials from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have the ability to allow or reject entrance. The CBP officer will give you an entry sticker or a paper Form I-94, also known as an Arrival/Departure Record, if you are allowed to enter the United States.
A Visa is required for any foreign national wishing to enter the United States. It could be a non-immigrant visa for a short period of time or an immigrant visa for a long period of time. To enter the United States, Indians must get a non-immigrant visa.
