Non-Immigrant Visas

What is a Non-Immigrant Visa?

A non-immigrant visa is granted to those who wish to stay in the United States on a temporary basis for reasons spanning education, employment, and more. To obtain this visa, you have to show that you are entering the United States to accomplish a specific task and will then return back to your home country.

An immigration inspector in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection of the Department of Homeland Security makes the final decision on whether or not you can enter the country and on how long you can stay.

Once in the United States, you are permitted to work or study for the time that has been granted and based on the restrictions of your specific non-immigrant visa. Before your non-immigrant visa expires, there are steps you can take to extend your visa or apply for an immigrant visa.
