Non-Immigrant Visas Lawyer in Elizabeth, NJ
Newark Immigration Attorney Michael Noriega Helps Residents Obtain Non-Immigrant Visas in New Jersey
The United States welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors each year from all over the world. Some of these foreigners include tourists, students, trade partners, diplomats, temporary workers, and investors. While most of these individuals do not intend to move here permanently, they still must obtain legal permission (in the form of a non-immigrant visa) to enter the US and remain for the duration of their intended stay.
However, the United States grants a limited number of non-immigrant visas annually. The fastest and most efficient way to obtain one is to enlist the guidance of an experienced immigration lawyer who knows the policies and paperwork required to complete the non-immigrant visa process correctly. Call Michael Noriega, Esq. for guidance today.
Which Non-Immigrant Visas Are Available to Foreign Visitors?
Depending on the nature of your visit to the U.S., there are different types of visas available, including:
- B1 & B2 Visas: These are issued to temporary visitors of the country on business or pleasure. The B1 visa is issued to an individual visiting the country for business purposes on behalf of a foreign employer. “Business purposes” can be a meeting, conference or contract negotiation. The B2 applies to a person visiting for leisure, pleasure, or simply tourism.
- F1-Visa: This visa applies to foreign students. Foreigners looking to commit to full-time schooling in a U.S. educational institute (which is authorized to enroll foreign students), may apply for this visa.
- J1-Visa: This visa applies to those involved in an exchange visitor program. If you’re a foreign student, an expert in a certain field, a scholar or a medical intern (among other occupations), you may apply for a J1 visa.
