Visiting the United States for Pleasure, B-2 Visa

The B-2 visa is probably the most popular US visa. This non-immigrant visa is available to aliens traveling to the United States for tourism or pleasure. If the B-2 visa is for multiple entries, an alien can usually re-enter the US several times as long as an alien maintains residence in the foreign country. Additionally, the B-2 visa processing times are relatively short. Most commonly, B-2 visa is granted to aliens intending to enter the US to:

  • Visit friends and relatives in the US
  • Receive medical treatment in the US
  • Tour the US for pleasure

While the B-2 visa is very common, it is very frequently denied. B-2 visa denial is very frustrating because it usually involves vacation plans and/or visiting family and friends. It is recommended that an alien retains an immigration attorney to help apply for the B-2 visa because the attorney’s help can substantially increase an alien’s chances of obtaining a B-2 visa.

Both B-1 and B-2 visa applicants must:

1) demonstrate an intent to depart at the expiratation of their authorized stay (I-94);

2)  show employment, family , social ties ro tresidence abroad;

3) adequate financial resources to carry out purpose of visist, be it sightseeing or medical treatment.

In most cases, B-2 visa holders are admitted to the US for 6 months, but this period can be shorter, for example 3 months or even 1 month.
