Additional Types of Visas
Deciding on the Right Visa
A visa is an official government document issued to a foreign national, which grants permission to carry out a specific purpose within a defined period of time. The more commonly known non-immigrant visas include family visas, work visas and student visas. Since there are many reasons that aliens may desire to enter the United States, there are many additional types of visas that can be applied for. Understanding the many different types is important as some can be quite lengthy to obtain and some are quite complex. Choosing the correct visa can make all the difference in getting it approved without excessive delays. A few of the many types of visas we can help you apply for are:
Visitor Visas, B1 and B2: B1 is a temporary visitor visa for business purposes such as purchasing or attending a meeting or trade show. It is normally granted for a period of 3 months with the ability to apply for extensions. B2 is for pleasure such as vacations or visiting family and friends.
Temporary Workers, H Visas: There are several different types of H visas that cover specialty occupations and fashion models, nurses during a shortage of health professionals in an area, temporary farm workers, trainees and the spouse or child of certain H visa holders.
Religious Worker, R Visas: Clergy members performing duties and/or conducting religious worship or working in a religious occupation may qualify for this type of visa.
