B-2 Visitor Visa
A B-2 visitor visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows individuals to enter the United States as visitors for tourism/pleasure (b-2 visa), medical treatment, or business (b-1 visa).
B-2 Visitor Visa Requirements
B-2 visitor visas are one of the more difficult visas to get approved. It is automatically presumed by the interviewing officer that the applicant has intentions of permanently staying in the U.S. It is the burden of the B-2 visitor visa applicant and VISANOW to prove:
- The intended trip will be temporary;
- The visitor can financially support him or herself during the trip;
- Documents showing the visitor’s ties to his or her home country.
VISANOW’s expert immigration attorneys and customer support team will work with you to compile the strongest case possible and maximize the chances of your B-2 visitor visa being approved.
The B-2 Visitor Visa Process
It is always advised to apply for the B-2 visitor visa well in advance of your planned trip. VISANOW’s immigration attorneys will work with you to assemble the most compelling B-2 visitor visa case. Once all documents are collected, VISANOW will submit the required B-2 visitor visa application to the consulate, a packet of B-2 visitor visa documents will be sent to the applicant for the B-2 visitor visa interview, and our team will help the applicant prepare for the interview by setting proper expectations and highlighting potential questions the officer may ask.
