US Visa Types

A visa is a document that allows you to enter a foreign country legally. The foreign country’s immigration officials will issue it after reviewing and verifying your credentials. Once you have a visa, you can enter the country and remain there for a predetermined time. Visa policies vary by country. The United States allows visa-free travel to citizens of certain countries through its Visa Waiver Program. Citizens of all other nations must apply for a visa to enter the country. The U.S. issues many different types of visas. The type you require depends on the purpose of your trip. This page explains all major U.S. visa categories, their spousal/dependent status, and common mistakes made during the visa interview by each visa class applicant.

Non-immigrant Visas (NIVs)

If you want to visit the U.S. temporarily for study, work, tourism, medical care, or business, you must apply for an NIV. To apply for any visa in this category, you must fulfill the criteria for that visa. Also, you must demonstrate to the visa officer that you have strong ties to your home country and intend to return once your visit is complete. At Udeti, we will work with you to determine the best visa for your specific needs and provide guidance on how to pass your visa interview.

Immigrant Visas

If you want to live permanently in the United States then you must apply for an IV. Work opportunities, marriage, family relations, adoption, and diversity requirements are all grounds for which the U.S. issues immigrant visas. You do not need to renew or extend your immigrant visa after you have obtained it. Furthermore, after living in the United States for a specific time you can petition for citizenship, and if granted, you will become a U.S. citizen.
