B-2 Tourist Visa
Immigration Attorney in New Jersey
In the United States, the tourist visa is known as the visitor visa or B-2 visa. The B-2 visa is a non-immigrant visa issued to those who are entering the United States for a temporary period for pleasure, medical treatment, or tourism. Unless you are coming from one of the Visa Waiver countries which do not have to apply for a visa, you must apply for a visa abroad in your country of departure and obtain approval before entering the United States. This is commonly used for those vacationing, visiting family relatives, attending special events, or obtaining medical treatment in the United States. If you or a loved one requires help processing the requirements or applying for a visa abroad, call the Law Offices of Simone Bertollini for a consultation with an immigration lawyer.
How do I apply for a visitor visa?
Getting a United States tourist visa will require you to get a passport style photograph of yourself and each applicant. The photo must be a digital photograph and be square; between 600 by 600 pixels and 1200 by 1200 pixels; must be in color and must be in JPEG format. There is a fee for applying for the visa which must be paid and is good for a year, in other words, you must have your interview within a year of paying the fee.
When attending your interview, you must be certain to have all of your necessary documentation with you, such as your passport, your photograph, the confirmation page generated when you applied for your visa online, the visa application fee receipt, an interview appointment letter and any supporting documents that show that you have strong family and business ties to your country. Otherwise, you may get a Visa denial.
