Important Travel Document Information – Please Read

B-Visas are a non-immigrant visa that allows foreign nationals to visit the United States for a limited time.

If you are unsuitable for an ESTA visa waiver or require a longer-term visa for the USA, a B-Visa is likely the correct visa for you. If, however, you are a citizen of a visa waiver country, please apply for an ESTA.

  • ESTA – For a short stay of up to 90 days
  • B1 visa – Business travellers
  • B2 visa – Tourist travellers

About B-Visas

B1 and B2 visas are sometimes referred to as “B visas“. They are the most prevalent sorts of visas in the United States for various purposes. The B1 visa is primarily used for short-term business trips, whereas the B2 visa is primarily used for tourism.

“B1/B2” is indicated under “Visa Type/Class” if a visa is issued when the US government approves your B1 or B2 visa application. The visitor may engage in short-term business and tourism activities in the United States under this visa indication.

Types of B Visas

A B1 visas would be awarded to a person who wishes to enter the United States to consult with business partners, attend a scientific, educational, professional, or business convention or conference, settle an estate or negotiate a contract.

A B2 visa would be awarded to a person desiring to enter the United States for tourism, recreation, visits with friends or family, rest, medical treatment, and social or humanitarian activities.

You may also apply for a B1/B2 visa, a combination of both tourism / business travel.

Reasons for a B visa?

The benefit of a B-visa is that it can be obtained in a short period. Compared to the E-visa, which is required for ex-pats, and the L-visa, which is required for transferring, the application is simpler and easier to get. The VWP (Visa Waiver Program) was developed in the United States for friendly countries. Citizens of the system’s subject nations are permitted to travel to the United States without getting a visa and to stay for up to 90 days. They must apply for an ESTA before leaving, and their stay will be limited to sightseeing or short-term business.

The downside of the B-visa, on the other hand, is that it contains restrictions on what can be done in the United States. Because local work is not permitted, the B-1 visa is only valid for meetings, inspections, business conversations, and purchases. Employment, including part-time work, is not permitted on either the B-1 visa or the B-2 visa subject to sightseeing.

Applying For B-Visas

To get a B visa, you need simply apply to the U.S. consulate; an application to the Immigration and Naturalization Service is unnecessary.

Citizens of eligible nations may be able to visit the United States for vacation or business for up to 90 days without a visa under the Visa Waiver Program.

The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) permits nationals of member nations to enter the United States visa-free for less than 90 days. Before travel, VWP eligibility and a valid Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) approval are prerequisites.

You may still apply for a visiting (B) visa if you are qualified to travel under the VWP but prefer to go with a visa in your passport.
