New York – NYC B-2 Visa For Pleasure Lawyers

Whether you are visiting the United States or seeking permanent residence, a foreign citizen must first lawfully obtain a visa. There are various different types of visas, and each one has a unique and specific purpose.

B-2 Visa For Pleasure

A B-2 visa is issued for a citizen seeking a temporary stay in America. These types of visas are approved for activities such as:

• Holiday vacation
• Participation in a performance or contest (must not be paid for event)
• Participation in social events
• Visit to friends or relatives
• Tourism
• Recreational educational course (must not be towards a credit or degree)
• Medical treatment

Some temporary stays require a different type of visa. Activities that are not permitted under the B-2 visa for pleasure include:

• Any paid or professional performance
• Educational study
• Permanent residence
• Employment
• Journalism or information media work
• Arrival of a crewmember

How to Apply for a Visa

The first step everyone should take involves contacting the U.S. Consulate or Embassy nearest to you for specific instructions on how to apply. Typically, those seeking a visa will complete an online visa application. During this process, you will be asked to upload a photograph of yourself. Once the DS-160 form is completed, you will need to print a copy of the confirmation page.

The next step usually involves scheduling an interview at your U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Officers maintain a certain level of discretion in requiring interviews, but in most cases they do not require those aged 13 and younger or 80 and older to interview.

Your interviewer will determine if you meet the qualifications necessary to be granted a visa, and it is up to you to establish that you do meet the requirements. You will want to bring certain documentation with you including:

• Your printed confirmation page from form DS-160
• Your Passport
• The application fee payment
• A photo if you are unable to upload one online

The interviewer will establish which visa is appropriate for your travel needs, take fingerprint scans and inform you if any further steps required of you. You may be required to provide documents as evidence of your ability to pay for the trip or proving the purpose of your trip.

How Can We Help?

The process of getting a visa seems simple enough on paper, but the actual process can be quite stressful and frustrating if you are not sure of the process. If you come unprepared for your interview, then you may be asked to return on a later date or even have your visa denied. Our immigration attorneys are uniquely qualified to handle all your visa needs and ensure you have all of the information you need before your interview.

Our firm is equipped to handle complex cases, keep all consultations confidential and work with you on flexible payment schedules.

The attorney assigned to you will help you determine which visa you will need and the documentation required to have your application approved. Navigating the immigration system can seem overwhelming, but with our experience on your side, you can be sure you are applying for the right visa and have the support you need. Complications often arise due to oversights of the immigration officers or from complications or lack of knowledge about documents the U.S. Embassy requires.
