U.S. Visitor Visa (B)

The US visitor visa offers individuals the opportunity to embark on short-term visits to the United States, with a maximum duration of up to six months. These visas cater to two primary purposes for visiting the US, resulting in two distinct categories within the B visa classification.

B1 Visa: Your Gateway to Business Ventures

The B1 Visa, often referred to as the Business Visa, is designed for individuals seeking to enter the United States with the intent of conducting business activities with companies located within the country. Whether it's attending meetings, negotiating contracts, or exploring potential business partnerships, the B1 Visa is your key to engaging in various business endeavors.

B2 Visa: Your Ticket to Tourism and More

On the other hand, the B2 Visa, also known as the Tourist Visa, extends an invitation to explore the US for leisure, pleasure, or visits with friends and family. This visa category opens doors to unforgettable tourist experiences, cultural exploration, and quality time with loved ones on American soil.
